Well said, Mr. Meyer.

The "fire in a theatre" idea doesn't equate here. In the case of "fire in the theatre," the idea is preventing one's provoking a life-threatening cattle stampede in an exigent situation. In the case of media reportage, you're talking about third-party reporting after the dust has settled. Limiting that right is stomping the First Amendment into the dust. I despise the main stream media with a burning loathing that defies description. But I'll never subscribe to curbing their ability to lie freely. The truth will out.
