Review the First Amendment to the Constitution, located in this week's Learning Resources.
In light of the
broad protections afforded the media via the First Amendment, reflect upon the modern-day relevance of the right to free speech as embodied by modern media.
Post to your blog, explaining whether you think the media today is capitalizing on the broad protections afforded by the First Amendment. Include why or why not. Evaluate whether the proliferation of media outlets (e.g., blogs, social media, Twitter, etc.) contributes to or detracts from effective public policy.
