Default Re: WikiLeaks

Like it or not, WikiLeaks is a press outlet, and thus should be protected by the first amendment. Lovell v. City of Griffin defined a press outlet as "every sort of publication which affords a vehicle of information and opinion."

I don't personally agree with what they are doing, but I don't think they should be stopped.

Can you post a link to the law that states this? From what I've read, the only person doing anything illegal is whoever leaked them to WikiLeaks.
