"Regulating Google results would violate First Amendment"

    "A prominent First Amendment scholar has co-authored a white paper
     arguing that search engines enjoy the same high level of First
     Amendment protections as traditional media outlets. Google
     commissioned the paper, presumably to help ward off calls for
     government regulation of its search results."

The paper's analysis is correct.  And especially to the critics in the
audience, I'll note that this fact is true regardless of the paper's
funding source.
