Democracy Dies in Derpness™


WaPo seems to imply that because the Democrats disagree with Trump’s assessment of the election’s integrity, his speech should not be protected under the First Amendment. You’d think that a media outlet such as WaPo would be an ardent defender of the First Amendment and the American principle that the cure for bad/stupid/wrong speech is more speech exposing errors rather than censorship.

OTOH, WaPo’s preferred politicians are running the show for the moment, so they feel safe—and the other side tends to play by our historic rules of press freedom, so WaPo has never been under any serious threat for the government.

Hmmmmm.
