RE: CITIZENS UNITED.
The Daily News once again condemns political speech by corporations, and would have us believe that no corporation was allowed to express any political views until the Citizens United decision unleashed the demons of corporate opinion on all of us.
In fact, prior to Citizens United, there were a number of corporations that enjoyed unlimited political-speech rights. Philadelphia Media Network Inc., which owns the Daily News, was one of them. In fact, every corporation that owned a newspaper or a radio or TV station was allowed to say whatever it wished, whenever it wished. Other corporations, however, could not. The major effect of the Citizens United case was simply to level that playing field.
