First Amendment Defense vs. Second Amendment Defense

Just a moment to comment on something from the Fox News article on the terrorist attack on the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek:

He (Greenfield Police Chief Bradley Wentlandt) described the scene as chaotic and fluid and urged the media not to broadcast photos or video showing tactical units, which could put officers in danger.

Wisely, to protect our law enforcment and medical emergency responders, the media has apparently honored this request.

But if the media made the same voracious stance to defend their first amendment rights that the National Rifle Assocication takes to defend second amendment rights, the media could have easily said no, WE HAVE A RIGHT TO COVER THIS STORY ANY WAY WE CAN, public safety be damned!
