Has Ann Coulter broken the rules of freedom of speech?
She is a news commentary personality so I’m not sure if this applies to her since journalist (I don’t know if she is one) are pretty well protected under the law but unless you are a comedian, why are political commentators allowed to actually lie to the public and advance ignorance.
Maybe Ann has done us one favor. She shows us how misinformation is extremely harmful on a huge and public scale.
I’ve seen several videos where she says things that simply are not true and she has no fact to back her up. Luckily there seems to always be someone there to set the facts straight but there will always be people to believe she is right.
Personally, whether you are a commentator or a journalist, you should not be allowed to spread misinformation and share it as fact without penalty. The amendments where created to protect our government and its citizens. It was not meant to be a billy club to spread lies and hate so you can make a quick buck.
