Except that's your opinion it harms all. Political speech is what the Framers were really protecting.

Political speech is protected speech whether you think it's harmful or not.
Before you read the “Outside The Lines” report, consider this:
Taping the opposing team’s sideline still isn’t banned; only taping the opposing team from the sideline is illegal.
Also remember this:
Taping the opposing team from the sideline wasn’t banned until 2006, yet the report cites examples as far back as 2000. ~NESN
