Free Speech at Risk – Follow-up

My prior post on Snyder v. Phelps is available here.

Howard Bashman at How Appealing reports on several reactions in the media to the Court’s decision to accept cert in Snyder v. Phelps:

The York Sunday News published an article entitled: “What the Supreme Court sees in Snyder v. Phelps

The Los Angeles Times had an editorial entitled: “Protecting the vile: Distasteful protests by a fringe religious group at military funerals are still protected by the 1st Amendment"

The Baltimore Sun had an editorial entitled: "Free speech is paramount: Everyone has a right to express their views, even when they're deplorable"

Michael Smerconish had an op-ed in the Philadelphia Inquirer: "Free (and hateful) speech vs. the right to gather: Justices should rule against a Kansas church group that protested at a fallen Marine's funeral"
