“Free press” the only right in the Constitution

Free press” the only right in the Constitution

The Obama Administration is attempting to resurrect legislation giving the news media greater protection than they already enjoy under the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.  This legislation would protect their phone records and sources from being subpoena. 
With all the protected rights and privileges located within the Constitution, the right of a “free press” is the only one identified by journalist as the one without any limits, responsibilities, and to be expanded beyond the intent of the Founders.
The right of a “Free Press” as housed in the First Amendment reads as follows:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
There are five enumerated rights in the above amendment, however one out of the four is perceived to be without limits.  While at the same time the other three must be limited.  Further proof of the hypocrisy of the bias news media and American liberals.
The “free press” portion was envisioned by the Founders to mean the government would not prohibit the press or demand of the press.  However the press was to be subject to the same laws are enjoyed by the rest of the populace. 
If a citizen knowingly accepts stolen property that is a crime.  If a member of the press receives stolen material for publication that according to the news media is protected. 
The Second Amendment protects the right to bear arms and we all know how that has been butchered by the same gang demanding no restrictions on a “free press.”
