Good point. On the other hand, the Press is mentioned specifically in the First Amendment, whereas corporations are not.

But the biggest and most amplified Press are corporations ie NY Times, Fox, CNN, Washinton post, etc So do we extend the First Amendment to these corporations by counting them as Constitutional Individuals?

Also, what of the Film Producing LLC's that produce political speech and commentary? Are they Press too or are their productions more speech than press? How is it an entertainmant corporation can get 1st A. protection but not a mining corporation?

One corporation can make movies and TV shows that seek to influence public opinion and the corporations on the other side of the issue can't even run a 30 second commercial in response? WTF?
