"Yesterday's huge Supreme Court victory for free-speech rights in the case of Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission serves as a warning to the Obama administration on other speech-related issues," states an editorial in the Washington Times.
"Several Obama appointees have denigrated the importance of the First Amendment, and one presidential appointee, Mark Lloyd, holds views fundamentally at odds with the Supreme Court and America's whole tradition of protecting free speech."
Here's a quote from Mr. Lloyd: "It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press. . . . This freedom is all too often an exaggeration. At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies."
The editorial concludes, "Yesterday's Supreme Court ruling stands as a rebuke to Mr. Lloyd's dangerous creed. There's nothing exaggerated about the importance of the First Amendment."
