Iott refiles his Republican membership/donor forms marked ‘soldier’

Matt Parker, spokesman for Iott’s campaign, said Toledo Free Press “gets no comments from Iott” on any matter because of an Oct. 17 opinion column by Toledo Free Press Editor in Chief Michael S. Miller, “Iott should exit, stage reich.”

Hilarious! You'll be sorry Blade and TFP! When he goose-steps to D.C. as the people's choice, he'll change that pesky 1st Amendment and ya'll won't be publishing anything about him.

No votes yet

But you know if he could...

Maybe he misfiled......oh, wait can't use that Charlie Rangel already used that one.

Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted.

that Marcy Kaptur still refuses to go on WSPD. But that was probably just a mistake right? Because it would appear to be a tad hypocritical to take shots at Mr. Iott while letting Ms. Kaptur off the hook.

"Marcy Kaptur still refuses to go on WSPD"

That's a bit different. Iott's campaign refused to comment on a news article. Kaptur refuses to be interview by Fraud & Brain. They don't do news.

So as of March 19th, Iott was a paid Ohio soldier? Wow, it just keeps getting better for him.

because I would expect that Brian and/or Fred (though I don't speak for either of them) if given the opportunity, would probably ask Marcy questions in regards to articles about her. Those are basic interviewing techniques.

The point you seemed to miss was that it seems mildly hypocritical to not mention Ms. Kaptur's refusal to speak with particular media outlets while equating Mr. Iott not speaking to the TFP with changing the First Amendment.

"That's a bit different. Iott's campaign refused to comment on a news article."
Actually I think it was an editorial.

"Actually I think it was an editorial"

Why do you think so?

because of skywalkers comments in the original post "because of an Oct. 17 opinion column by Toledo Free Press Editor in Chief Michael S. Miller, “Iott should exit, stage reich.”"

but I will admit I didn't read the article in question because TFP is blocked out here (I don't know why either) but if that was the title of the article then it is clearly an editorial because that clearly gives an opinion and leaves no wiggle room for objective journalism.

Miller's article was an editorial, of course. But merely referencing that editorial in a news article doesn't make the news article an editorial. But as you said, you didn't read it so I'll cut you some slack.
