Subject: RE: BS: Press Banned from WH who's next?
Hardly minor, pete. Assume the first amendment is not some idle whim, but that the authors' thought it so important that the freedom of the press was not infringed in any way that they altered the constitution to enforce it. As an exercise, try writing ten sentences why they might think that. Then for each reason decide whether prohibiting some media works with or against that reason.
