I was watching Real Time with Bill Maher last Friday, and he brought up his appearance on the CBS Evening News’s new segment called “Free Speech.”
He asked if he could talk about religion.
As a matter of fact, they sent him a list of acceptable topics for his moment of “free speech” on the evening news.
For free speech?
He also said that Katie referred to free speech as a privilege in this country, when it is, in fact, an inalienable right (or it’s supposed to be, anyway).
Bill said something like, “If the people at CBS don’t understand what free speech is, what am I to expect from FOX?”
So now we know what Katie Couric’s idea of free speech is. It’s a list of acceptable topics.
What’s your idea of free speech?
