Silky Hates Free Speech

Let’s see, how does that go?

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Too bad John Edwards, who was once a Senator, ran for president, then as VP, and now is running for president again, doesn’t believe in the 1st Amendment. Let’s start with the video (heard this story on local radio, 680-WPTF, the Bill Lumaye Show)


The problem is, My Little Silk Pony’s campaign is having a (typical) hissy fit

A UNC-Chapel Hill journalism professor said John Edwards’ presidential campaign tried to kill a student’s video story about his campaign headquarters.

Associate Professor C.A. Tuggle said two top staffers for the former North Carolina senator demanded that the school drop the segment from the student-run television program “Carolina Week.” They also asked to have the video removed from the YouTube Web site.

Tuggle said they threatened to cut off access to Edwards for UNC student reporters and other student groups if the piece aired.

Listening to the story on WPTF, Tuggle had much more to say regarding the Edwards campain attempting to stifle the freedom of the press over this story. The Silk Pony campaign is saying that the story is biased. My response? So what. Usually, the bias is overwhelmingly against conservatives and for liberals. This time, it takes on Edwards, makes some good points, and is a good piece of journalism.

The story will air on “Carolina Week” out of Chapel Hill on Monday.

The fact is, no matter what John says, he lives the high life, and really does not do all that much for the little guy.

BTW, I have saved the video, in case it does get pulled, as well as uploaded it to Daily Motion.
