  •  1st Amendment is not a guarantee of a platform. (2+ / 0-)

    An ignoramus like Limbaugh acts like when someone wants to have a platform to speak and does not have a platform to speak that somehow there is a First Amendment violation. The First Amendment does not guarantee any particular kind of platform from which to speak. It guarantees no one in this country their own radio or television show, their own speaking engagements, nor their own magazine or television columns.  

    The First Amendment merely protects against government censorship.  It does not mean that any owner of any medium to disseminate information is forced to allow access to that medium to anyone other than to whom they choose to offer it. Limbaugh is ignorant beyond belief.
