Beldar on Plame decision

Beldar scores the Plame decision, which deals with journalists and the first amendment.

His score is Prosecution 34 and Journalists 0. That is if this was looked at, as if it was a football game.

The final conclusion: Journalists have no more priviledges then those of ordinary citizens. Just because you write for a MSM outlet does not give you special status above that of the common man. All that is required to be a journalist is to pick up pen and paper (and nowdays a cell phone with camera doesn't hurt) and go out and find something and report it.
