In a 5-4 decision, the court says government may not ban political spending by corporations in candidate elections.
Although I wish there was a way to limit lobbies, this was not the way to do it.
But here is what I found interesting in Justice Kennedy's opinion:
When government seeks to use its full power, including the criminal law, to command where a person may get his or her information or what distrusted source he or she may not hear, it uses censorship to control thought [Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for the majority]. “This is unlawful. The First Amendment confirms the freedom to think for ourselves.”
"Where a person may get his or her information..." wouldn't that put an end to the Fairness Doctrine in any form?
