Justice Scalia: If you don’t like corporate-funded political ads, turn off the TV

Well, yeah:

U.S. Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia has a simple solution for people who don’t like all the political advertisements unleashed by the court’s decision two years ago that ended limits on corporate contributions in political campaigns — change the channel or turn off the TV.

“I don’t care who is doing the speech — the more the merrier,” Scalia said. “People are not stupid. If they don’t like it, they’ll shut it off.”

The correct response to something you don’t like is to articulate a coherent argument in opposition. Not to censor the guy who said it.
