Out-Libertarianed by Tucker Carlson?


I neglected to mention last night: Later in that same Bill Maher show, they had Tucker Carlson on and Maher was asking about the Plame hoohah. Carlson avered that a journalist's freedom to print the truth is absolute, covering even the exposure of a CIA undercover agent. Maher asks (roughly): "Oh, come on, so journalists can publish our troop movements? Even if it endangers the troops?" Yes, Carlson confirms: When he said absolute, he meant it.

Now, I thought I was pretty hardcore on free speech. But even I think it's OK to make that illegal. So, informal and utterly unscientific poll: How many people would be willing to join Carlson in biting that particular bullet?
