I noted the political free speech battle won by my friends John Carlson and Kirby Wilbur last week–a decision, by the way, that has gotten almost no attention in the mainstream media. Here’s Rush Limbaugh’s take.
John Fund at Opinion Journal weighs in today and concludes:
Those in the media who support campaign regulations such as McCain-Feingold, believing that their own free speech is safe, could stand to read the decision too. The zealous pursuit of Messrs. Carlson and Wilbur showed how overreaching government officials can use such laws to intimidate the media into silence. One can only imagine how the media cheerleaders of McCain-Feingold would have reacted if they had been ordered to estimate a value for their all-out efforts to promote the legislation and were then faced with restrictions on their own speech.
