    regarding purity of intent. Do you really want courts to decide whether a reporter is doing something for the Right Reasons?

    Some journalists have agendas. They still get the same protections. As do shitty hack journalists not worth the ink it takes to print their byline.

      Publishing has protections. My right to publish is exactly the same as any "Journalist's" right to publish.

      I don't have a right to trespass to gather information, nor does a "Journalist".

      We were not ahead of our time, we led the way to our time.
