Photography is Not a Crime - It’s a First Amendment Right

Judge tries to block newspaper from printing photos of arrested politician

By Carlos Miller
U.S. District Judge Arthur Spatt has absolutely no clue how the news industry works. And he has no clue how the First Amendment works.

The federal judge found it “troubling” that Newsday published photos of New York legislator Roger Corbin being led away in handcuffs after he was arrested on tax evasion charges earlier this month.

Spatt believes Newsday should have used other photos taken throughout Corbin’s long legislative career. FULL STORY AND PHOTO.
