Senator Durbin is sworn to uphold the Constitution. There goes that oath of office - right down the crapper. What part of the First Amendment does he not understand? It must be the part that says "Congress shall make no law..". It certainly isn't up to Congress to imperiously declare who or what constitutes the "press". Any citizen can report on what he/she sees or thinks. Watch him below. Of course he's targeting bloggers and other users of "new media"; their mouthpieces in the New York Times, NBC, Washington Post etc no longer have monopolies on the flow of information.
By-the-bye.. Dick Durbin is another faux-katholyc who pushes marriage perversion and baby-murder. Therefore his arrogance isn't startling at all.
