is what I consider to be the minimum guarantee of the First Amendment."

    But when the press no longer publishes criticism of government policy, that right is significantly diminished.

    Yes indeed, there is an experiment underway. Observed very closely nationwide. To the intent of foreseeing a breaking point of ones resolve ! This done through the eyes of the individual wishing to observe the whole ! By way of implementing unjust law.

    An unconditional right to free speech? Not if you respect the battle flag of the northern army of Virginia or you understand that political correctness is nothing more than cultural Marxism and hate it with every fiber of your being because you know what it was designed to do.

    Right on, Mike.

    Absolutely and further, the press has become a foreign powers' agent provocateurs and agent combatants when they censor(ed) political speech of individual sovereigns and their elected officials (a first act of war  along with justifying their lies and propaganda). The 4th branch of the occupying statist theocracy now infesting this land (ecclesiastical propagators, i.e. MSM) is at war with We The People, the U.S. Constitution, individual sovereignty, liberty and inalienable rights (including that of speech)
