Did he mention 1st Amendment suppression by Facebook, pre-Musk Twitter, Google, and other social media platforms and their collusion with the FBI?
Hi Tedd! Thanks for reading! He did briefly mention that, as a whole, we are long overdue for a Supreme Court case regarding social media’s parameters and their place in free speech rights.
Apparently Mr. La Monte hasn’t gotten around to lecturing the CNN Staff on TV.
Perhaps he could wrangle an invitation to speak to the Stanford Law students…
It would be great if CNN would simply practice what they preach. No investigative journalism there, just an echo chamber.
I feel 1st Amendment requires TV networks that operate in OUR public owned airwaves to report ALL the news not just the news to which TV management agrees and slants their way. eg why has not CNN reported on the Hunter Biden laptop? Why has CNN not reported much if anything about the border crises in past two years. People like LeMonte dance around the real broad issues of our times. I cannot give examples for fear my free speech will be used as a weapon agains me and I do not want to be branded as a ——– you know.
I have to admit that CNN is the tip of the spear in news media, as far as letting it all hang out on the air.
And that’s not Hyperbole kiddo !

Freedom of speech doesn’t mean freedom from consequences..I’m all for you having your opinion and expressing it..what I’m not in favor of is infringing on my rights to do so..example..everyone has the right to peacefully assemble..but when you block a road or impede someone from exceeding their right to freely move then it’s no longer about you..also? Freedom of expression and speech does not mean you can have drag queens in elementary schools..we’ve gotten way past freedom of speech and way into propagating your views on others and damning them if they don’t agree..
