Except that's your opinion it harms all. Political speech is what the Framers were really protecting. Not ruining a private citizen's reputation with false reports whereby they lose work or something. That's never been protected. You can read the cases on where the line is drawn. Political speech is protected speech whether you think it's harmful or not.

“We do not believe in aggressive or preventive war. Such war is the weapon of dictators, not of free democratic countries like the United States.”~ Truman, Sept 1, 1950
