Freedom of Press in America?!? Zenger Found NOT Guilty!!
Holy smokes, we did NOT see that coming!!!
John Peter Zenger was found not guilty by a jury after being accused of publishing articles that attacked the government. The jury declared his innocence after lawyer Andrew Hamilton proved the allegations to be true.
Basically, this means that you can print whatever horrible nasty things you want about the government as long as it’s true! We bet Bill Cosby and other top dogs are FUMING over this news.
Yay, we can finally call everyone in power a total whorebag idiot and not have to worry about going to jail!!!!
