1st Amendment/ level of scrutiny for media Question

Postby arc2222 » Mon May 07, 2018 11:36 pm

Hi,
I have a question about 1st amendment protection (level of scrutiny) concerning: paper (ie. newspaper), cable, broadcasting, and the internet- especially for content-neutral and content-based regulations, prior restraints, etc.

This is what I have but I am not sure if they are correct (especially for *broadcasting*) (if anyone thinks anything is wrong please let me know- thank you)

Paper (ie. newspapers):
(1) content-based= strict scrutiny
(2) content-neutral = intermediate scrutiny

Cable:
(1) content based= strict scrutiny
(2) content-neutral - intermediate scrutiny

Broadcasting:**
(1) content-based= rational basis scrutiny?
(2) content-neutral = rational basis scrutiny?

Internet:
no 1st Amendment protection- no scrutiny???

Also for the indirect burden/restrainst on 1st Amendment- of taxation (ie. tax general public one thing and give lower or higher tax to media)- is it content-based strict scutiny and then if content-neutral its intermediate scrutiny?

Thank you for the help in advance I really appreciate it.
