IMHO, websites ARE the written word and are functionally equivalent to "the Press" as the Founders would recognize it. However, THAT'S MY OPINION.

Well thankfully the courts today also have that opinion.

Just b/c the FF's didn't envisage TV or computers doesn't mean the 1st Amend. doesn't protect them. You acknowledge that with regards to websites but not Broadcast TV. Thankfully I think you would be hard-pressed to find any judge, Conservative OR Liberal, that would agree with you on that one.
