MICKEY KAUS on proposals for a reporters’ shield law:

If Congress said professional reporters had more votes than ordinary citizens, after all, it would be struck down instantly. What’s different about speech? … I know, I know. The press professionals are doing it for our benefit! But you could say the same about, say, giving more votes to the more educated. They’d be doing it for the rest of us. Did someone add a Condescension Clause to the Constitution when I wasn’t looking?

Some people seem to think so.
