For me there is a difference between 'free speech' and Constitutionally protected 'free speech'. Only individuals get the second version.

Fine. Unions, the NYTimes, MSNBC, Newsweek, 527s, AirAmerica (RIP), are similarly enjoined from endorsing or publishing hit pieces on any politician within the limits of the existing laws.

If Maureen Dowd wants to mouth off on what troglodytes Republicans are, she can stand on the corner of 42nd and Broadway with a soapbox, magaphone, and umbrella. She can't use the NYTimes to spout her opinion, unless she owns the NYTimes as a sole proprietorship.
