Tell that to the paper merchants

The Hill: "John Paul Stevens: 'Money is not speech'."

Here we go again: a former Supreme Court justice makes unethical comments to once again demonstrate that Democrats hate free speech.  This isn't the 18th-century anymore where free speech means standing on a soapbox in the village square or slathering your fixed-type pamphlet press with an ink brush.

The New York Times spends millions in ink, paper, and electricity to spread a nearly (nearly!) monolithic line of left-wing propaganda.  But nobody would say that so-called Paper of Record should be limited in how much money they can blow to continue their self-regarding blather.  Unless the Koch brothers buy it!  Then all free speech bets are off.
