truly free speech

Daily Kos points to an interview with Bradley Smith, a Republican-appointed member of the Federal Election Commission. Kos comments:
Given Smith's comments, it truly is ironic that we have Republican commissioners on the FEC talking about equity between the corporate media and citizen media on the Internet, while so-called "Democrats" like Darr argue on behalf of corporate supremacy in the media sphere.
It's not ironic at all. Smith has always described himself as a Classic Liberal and has always been in favor of free speech. It's leftists like Kos who favor highly regulated speech and it's only when they are threatened by regulation themselves that leftists see the light and start favoring free speech.
