Aw: Free Press Hampering Lindsey Graham’s Efforts

The 1st Amendment doesn’t say freedom of the press cannot be abridged “unless the press reports what Congress does 24 hours a day and uses words the government doesn’t like.” At least not yet.

From CNS News:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), when talking to Capitol reporters, said that Fox News makes it difficult for him to garner support for his stance on immigration reform, which includes a “pathway to citizenship” for illegal aliens already living in the country.
[…]
“Let’s talk about immigration. When Fox News is saying ‘amnesty’ 24 hours a day, it makes it harder for me to get people on my side,” he added. “When the left, through MSNBC, talks about the tax cuts being a sell-out and going back to Bush policies, it makes harder for our Democratic colleagues.

“My statement to my colleagues is even though people are loud, that doesn’t mean they’re the majority,” Graham continued. “So if you’re doing things that make sense, just trust the country to figure it out, but in this environment of constant media scrutiny it is very difficult. I don’t know how you would have written the Constitution in this environment.”

If this is Graham’s attempt to get conservatives to warm up to MSNBC, I don’t think it’ll work.

Maybe Lindsey could get the immigration issue designated as a war so there would be an excuse to limit free speech (a source tells me Graham’s 2014 slogan will be “Loose Lips Sink My Re-Election Campaign’s Ship”).

I wonder how difficult it would be to get Grahamnesty to sign this petition.
