on misunderstanding the first amendment

Michael Graham displays his ignorance of the first amendment in this piece on townhall.com today:
The First Amendment and I have been evicted from ABC Radio in Washington, DC.

On July 25th, the Council on American-Islamic Relations demanded that I be punished for my on-air statements regarding Islam and its tragic connections to terrorism. Three days later, 630 WMAL and ABC Radio suspended me without pay for comments deemed hate radio by CAIR.
Hey buddy, why don't you READ the first amendment, then tell me what law Congress passed abridging your freedom of speech? No, the fact that a private company fires you because they disagree with your opinion does not violate your first amendment freedom of speech. I am certainly no friend of the mainstream media, but if you expect them to pay for you to spout your opinions you have to play by their rules.

Most modern day conservatives, who always go on and on about protecting the constitution, don't even understand the basic language of the Bill of Rights. Perhaps that's why they more often go about violating the Bill of Rights rather than defending it. It's funny how these alleged conservatives have no problem with big government and its corporate accomplices, as long as they are in control.
