    Since the press no longer performs its proper function in our society, it should no longer have any rights whatsoever. This is so that people are not confused into believing that the press is free. The press has chosen slavery to progressivism and the government, we should not try to deceive ourselves as to its being free.

      Since this is a case of a reporter trying to do his job, he’s doing a good job. He did get to stay and report. Check his twitter page and read the full story of why this is important.

      I agree that the press should no longer have any *special* rights (i.e. unfair privileges) that the rest of the public doesn’t have. (In fact, the press should never have had them in the first place.) However, the press should certainly have the same rights as the rest of the public. And perhaps the entire public should have the same rights as the press currently has.

    This British journalist is unaware that “freedom of the press” means “freedom for the MSM to propagandize leftwingwackoism” instead of actually freedom of the press.

    He needs to be informed :) /sarc
