Brian Stelter was clearly trying to make some sort of powerful statement with this tweet …
The First Amendment does not include the word "truth."

And yeah, that didn’t work out so well for him.
Honestly, watching a progressive talk about the Constitution is sorta like seeing a dog dressed up in human clothes – it’s wrong, it bothers you and makes you wonder if it’s ok to day drink.
Hale Razor was good enough to point out what else isn’t in the Constitution:
Nor does the Constitution mention healthcare, but here we are.

BUT here we are.

DON’T give Brian any ideas.
We kind of figured you didn't care that much about it anyway.

What, did he just figure out what the First Amendment actually says? Figures.

In a time when far too many are looking for ways to exempt certain words and certain groups of people from First Amendment protections, it’s more important than EVER to remind people why we have the amendment in the first place. Popular speech doesn’t need protecting.
I'm sorry, the Founders didn't envision Twitter or CNN. Please do all your "journalism" on parchment from now on.

And please only use quills and wear a powdered wig.
Thank god for that, otherwise CNN would go out of business, amirite!

Most of them would go out of business …

Ugh, don’t ask.
It's doesn't include the words 'courage', 'frequency', or 'Kenneth' either.

Wait wait wait, pretty sure ‘Kenneth’ is in Article 3 of the 26th Amendment.
