You’re Censoring People, not Corporations

But the fact is that a “corporation” is comprised of individuals, and THEY have their freedom of speech protected…even while they work for or own that corporation.
Censorship advocates, like judicial nominee Elena Kagan, and Liberal Republican John McCain, want to silence people, on the flimsy premise that they happen to be members of a corporation. They are violating the first amendment, because individuals are writing the copy that is being banned from publication.
You might as well censor them for belonging to a political party. We could just say “the constitution protects individuals, not parties”.
For that matter, publishing houses, newspapers, and blog hosting sites are corporations…everything they publish could be censored the same way.
You could censor the corporation if it tried to talk like some monstrous creation, but not the employees and management of the company who are actually buying political ads or other speech.
