U.S. District Judge Arthur Spatt has absolutely no clue how the news industry works. And he has no clue how the First Amendment works.

The federal judge found it “troubling” that Newsday published photos of New York legislator Roger Corbin being led away in handcuffs after he was arrested on tax evasion charges earlier this month.

Spatt believes Newsday should have used other photos taken throughout Corbin’s long legislative career.

The judge now wants to hold a hearing to determine whether Newsday and News12 should be barred from continuing to publish or broadcast these photos because he believes they may hinder Corbin’s chances for a fair trial.

Spatt, you are an idiot.

First of all, Corbin, a democrat, is not only charged with evading $226,000 in taxes, but also with lying to an agent about it.

Second of all, as stated by Newsday attorney David Schulz, “never in U.S. history has the U.S. Supreme Court or the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals allowed a judge to restrain news organizations before publication.”

“Courts do not get [into] telling the media what to publish,” Schulz said

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
