We know the media is working hard to get Hilary elected. Whether it be propping up unsubstantiated claims against Donald Trump or covering for Hillary, there is nothing they won’t to put Hillary in the White House.
Luckily we are seeing through their lies.
Thanks to Wikileaks, we are exposing Hillary for the fraud she is. Transparency is a good thing. But CNN is tired of you knowing the truth, so they concocted a vicious lie to keep you silent and away from it!
A statement made by CNN’s Chris Cuomo regarding Wikileaks has drawn quite a bit of attention, especially online in talks forums like Reddit. Cuomo said the controversial remarks while introducing a segment discussing some of the emails hacked from Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta.
“Remember, it’s illegal to possess these stolen documents. It’s different for the media,” Cuomo said.
More importantly, most people do not download these documents but read them on line and there is no actionable crime in reading the material from any of the myriad of sites featuring the Wikileaks documents.
Turley did add that Cuomo was right when he said the media has an exception. In Bartnicki v. Vopper, the Supreme Court addressed this very issue. The Justices were assessing whether a radio personality could be held liable for playing illegally intercepted phone calls on the radio. The Court held the First Amendment protected the disclosure of the intercepted communications by parties who didn’t participate in the illegal act.
Turley concedes that there are technical arguments that downloading the material could be a crime. “The weight of the existing case law militates heavily against the legal threat described on CNN,” he wrote.
