“I want to remind everyone that it isn’t just journalists who’ve enjoyed free speech through American history. We all have, here in America.
The First Amendment does mention the press — and thank goodness that it does. But in a time when the lines are blurring between journalists and the rest of us, remember that freedom of speech (and religion and the right to peaceful assembly, etc.) belongs to everyone. It is the foundation of liberty.”
