CONSTITUTION DAY: As social media grow, so does First Amendment appreciation

CONSTITUTION DAY: As social media grow, so does First Amendment appreciation | Constitution Day | Scoop.it

Fully 91 percent of students who use social networking to get news and information on a daily basis believe people should be allowed to express unpopular opinions. But only 77 percent of those who never use social networks to get news agree that unpopular opinions should be allowed.

 

I personally think that's good news. Of course, multiple studies have shown that, when taken door-to-door, a very small percentage of people would sign off on the Bill of Rights . . . and less than one-third say they've taken the time to read the entire thing.
