Paper Tiger

Why are newspapers somehow immune from littering laws? My local paper throws “free” samples on my lawn occassionally. If the publishers of advertising circulars did that with their content, they’d be run out of town on a rail. If online providers did that to my machine, it would be considered malware. In the US, our press freedoms allow anyone to publish just about anything they want; it does not give them license to forcibly distribute that content to others.

I guess what I’m saying is, literally: get off my lawn.
