Montana’s Citizens United Challenge Fails – By Bradley A. Smith – The Corner – National Review Online

Remarkably, there are still four justices on the Supreme Court who would overturn Citizens United. I say “remarkably” because it is worth recognizing where these justices are in their interpretation of the First Amendment. At the time of Citizens United, three of them (Justices Breyer, Ginsburg, and Sotomayor, plus then-Justice Stevens) would have taken the radical step of prohibiting the advertising and satellite television showing of a documentary movie about a political candidate simply because a corporation had a role in financing its production or distribution. Name me a movie or book that doesn’t receive such corporate support. This is a truly radical position, and Justice Kagan has now joined them. If you think much about it, this is a remarkable and radical interpretation of the First Amendment.
