    @elgatonegro99 shouldn't prohibit: compelling govt interest in prevention; no public interest beyond "entertainment" and barely that.

    @teddyrowe Thanks for the link. I agree with a lot of Jones' points but I don't agree that Elegy's one guiding thesis was "pull yourself up

    @BFitz_ I understand. I don't think it's spam, I think it's hoping people stay alert as our democracy crumbles, but to each his/her own.

    @briankoppelman he actually doesnt understand how constitutional law works, functionally. That he cant jail ppl for protected rights. Scary.

    @Dave11Poker gotcha. Well in that sense I thank you for that. I think we all have a duty to expand our views.

    Speaking of recent good reads by conservatives I don't agree with, I highly recommend Hillbilly Elegy. Well written and thought-provoking.

    @realChrisOregon u right wld be easy to censor ppl if courts were corrupt, but if we assume corrupt courts, all hope for govt is lost anyway

    Vanessa Selbst 2016 Nov 29

    @realChrisOregon that's why we have courts, to create standards! Also, lots of "news" articles f our Macedonian friends were blatantly false

    @Issachars_Son creators of fake news said they did that strategically bc right wingers easily duped. Citing outlying examples is just silly

    @Issachars_Son I can't cite any of the top of my head and don't feel like researching at 1AM. There's like a million articles on this now.

    @DebizzleSizzles @Issachars_Son you can't yell "fire" in a crowded theater because it's dangerous. Fake news is really fucking dangerous.

    @DebizzleSizzles @Issachars_Son but it is. All our constitutional freedoms have limits, when public policy warrants them. Even free speech.
