The real argument on free speech for bloggers

The excellent Coyote Blog cuts through the crap on the issue of whether bloggers should have the same speech protection as MSM with this great point:

I have come to the conclusion that arguing over who gets the media exemption is like arguing about whether a Native American in 1960's Alabama should use the white or the colored-only bathroom: It is an obscene discussion and is missing the whole point, that the facilities shouldn't be segregated in the first place. I have read my handy pocket Constitution (courtesy of the Cato Institute) through a number of times, and I have yet to find any mention of special constitutional privileges or rights for employees of major media firms.

I don't really have anything to add to this cogent argument except "Fuck, yeah!".
