    Durbin not sure if bloggers should be ‘entitled to constitutional protection’ [VIDEO]

    Durbin not sure if bloggers should be considered journalists, protected by law | The Daily Caller

    That guy is a Dick, and I can say that because that's his name.

    Look at the media trying to shield itself while throwing the rest of us under the bus. A media shield law, even if it actually prevented abuses based on things like the patriot act, gives the government the ability to define what media is, and though that they can apply that standard only to state approved media sources and persecute anyone without state approval. This means that under a democrat president MSNBC would be the only media and under a republican it would be faux news. Everyone else would be considered terrorists and enemies of national security for trying to inform the public of information the administration would find inconvenient or harmful.

    Everyone should let their representatives know that this is not acceptable and we need to go back to full protection for the media and speech from government oppression. The government should never be telling us what media is acceptable. yes, this should even include party propaganda like MSNBC and faux news.

    I read the OP article and I get the impression that this was posed (validly) as a question, not a statement. That makes quite a bit off difference.

    If I were to ask does legal abortion apply up until age 16, would I be suggesting we abort 15 year olds? Or would I be suggesting protection for them?

    We have thousands of politician blathering around the clock. If we extract any words that can be made controversial, it seems we do. Scare 'em and sell /em?

    Durbin would do anything he could to silence opposition views.

    I can't see the video right now but if Durbin really said this, he is an idiot and a dick.

    You need a video to determine if he is an idiot and a dick?

    The only valid answer is yes bloggers must be covered under a media shield law.
