Freedom of the press isn’t important because it helps the press; it’s important because it helps everyone (or I guess if you prefer, every American). You and I wouldn’t know about the DNC shenanigans this past election cycle if we had relied solely on American “press”. Since American media are constant cheerleaders for the military-industrial complex, if Congress were able to make laws to censor foreign media the war pigs would be able to engineer more horrible wars. 1A has the phrase “Congress shall make no law”, which has no qualifiers for non-Americans.
