3. This will be the response from CBS
Dear Rev Phelps,

Umm. No.


Of course, that kind of speech is not protected under the constitution.

In Schenck v. United States (1919), Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes stated that freedom of speech could be restricted if the speech represented a clear and present danger.

Certain statement can be interpreted as "fighting words" and are therefore not protected.

And can you imagine the fall out for CBS? The boycotts and demonstrations.

The bottom line is a bunch of crazy rich fucks don't have the right to put their propaganda all over city public property.
