Freedom of Speech

First, read or at least skim through this article:

Fox News gets OK to misinform public

Now, here is where the Judgement was wrong.  Yelling ‘Fire’ in a loaded theater just to see the reaction is not considered ‘free speech’, the reasons for this should be pretty obvious.  There is no difference between yelling fire and deliberately misinforming the public.  Both result in causing unfounded histeria which may or may not cause injury, either mental or physical.

Obviously, this case needs to be pressed on towards a higher court.
