It looks like all the hullabaloo about the proposed constitutional amendment to permit regulation of spending to influence elections can now stop, as the amendment failed to clear the Senate.
I just have one question, however: since the proposed amendment would give Congress the power to prohibit “corporations or other artificial entities created by law” from spending money to influence elections, but would expressly deny Congress the power to “abridge the freedom of the press,”
Who qualifies as a member of “the press?”
