‘We cannot toy around with the First Amendment — it is absolutely critical’

RUSH EXCERPT:
REICH: "Jonathan, as you said, I don’t ever remember agreeing with Ann Coulter on anything.

The First amendment is, and freedom of speech, is the cornerstone of our democracy. And, whether it’s college campuses or somebody burning a flag or it’s the — newspapers having a right to say whatever they want, we cannot toy around with the First amendment. It is absolutely critical."
