46. Right. The GOVERNMENT has no business suppressing free speech.

But Rush sure as hell suppresses the free speech of callers he disagrees with.

Doesn't he have an obligation to let them speak their piece?

The answer is No, he doesn't. It's his territory & he can run it by whatever rules he wants.

The same thing with, say the National Review or the World Socialist Website. They get to control their own content and have no obligation to publish anything they don't want to publish.

Same thing here.

Please do not litter the floor with stems & seeds as you drag your straw man off the stage.
