You'd think that in a country with a First Amendment, the press would overwhelmingly support the right to free speech. In 2015 America, that doesn't seem to be the case anymore.
Take for example the Islamic terror attack last night on a Muhammed Cartoon Exhibit in Garland, Texas. The organizers of the exhibit pretty much had it coming or they're Islamophobes, you know.
Free speech aside, why would anyone do something as provocative as hosting a "Muhammad drawing contest"?— Rukmini Callimachi (@rcallimachi) May 4, 2015

"Controversial." Anti-Muslim. Free speech aside. Stunt.
This is America, where we used to be allowed to say whatever we wanted without fear of being killed for it. Apparently, that has changed. Alarmingly, those who claim to support the First Amendment the most through their work as journalists are the people throwing free speech aside in the name of "tolerance."
