Periodic reminder: "freedom of speech" is not the same thing as "expectation that you'll be heard" or "the obligation to listen" or even "a private enterprise's obligation to provide you with a platform or material support"

@yakkoj Could you recomend something to read about this difference? How could it be mapped to a state-level policy?

@sergey_m I'd start with this Wikipedia article, which offers broader coverage of freedom of speech in USA:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_

Also, I should point out that while there is no real expectation to be heard, the freedom of speech and the freedom to listen are linked. Without one, you don't have the other.
