I just looked up the Norman Rockwell painting, which I remember fondly, too. There is only one (partial) woman in the scene and no people of color. Just saying...

How are free speech and slander/ libel related?

I'm doing a George Orwell OLLI group this Spring, and it is amazing how much "Politics and the English Language" and NEWSPEAK are relevant. A recent WashPost article by Mike DeBonis illuminated the Republican corruption of political speech about the January 6th event, but please generalize the analysis to all speech including Democrat and Progressive political speech.

How did the Pentagon Papers case create a precedent when each justice wrote his own decision?

Slander and libel are exceptions to First Amendment as is obscenity, which is now quite limited (still for minors). The reason libel and slander still are available is they are civil, not criminal, suits and they take place after the publication, not as prior restraint. And they are subject to Ny Times v. Sullivan etc. so that in many cases (e.g., public figures) only deliberate lies or grossly negligent false speech can bring damages.

Mild query re the supremacist vegetable sellers: the grass students stopped others from buying? Had the sellers crown out? Or “only” told others of the sellers’ politics? Sanford Ungar or others please clarify.
Richard R. Palmer

Had the sellers THROWN OUT…?
Lorna GRENADIER

Please explain the Citizens United decision in terms of the First Amendment right of free speech.

Was there litigation involving the fairness doctrine that was once in place? Could it be reinstated and make a difference?

I am shocked at the political bias displayed by this speaker.
