The Franklin Center has a new video out about the government’s latest efforts to stifle the political speech of American citizens. Government bureaucrats are trying to define who is a journalist and who isn’t, but the First Amendment applies to everyone – not just journalists who Chuck Schumer and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) happen to approve of.
Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee led by Chuck Schumer and Lindsey Graham have attached an amendment to Senate Bill 987, which would give the Department of Justice power to determine who qualifies for protection as a journalist under the First Amendment.
Here at the Franklin Center, we believe in the power of a free press. We already have a law to protect the press from government meddling in our newsgathering efforts and excluding Americans from the reporting process. It’s called the First Amendment.
This Ben Howe production features Michelle Malkin, Tabitha Hale, Duane Lester, and other exceptional conservative bloggers:
