WIKIPEDIA
— Freedom of the press in the United States (DIERSEN: DuPage County’s Media Guidelines (https://www.dupageco.org/CountyBoard/Docs/61283/) interfere “with the distribution of information and opinions.” According to the guidelines, erroneously, you can either be a member of the media, or someone who expresses opinions, but not both.) 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_of_the_press_in_the_United_States
(FROM THE POSTING: Freedom of the press in the United States is legally protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. This amendment is generally understood to prevent the government from interfering with the distribution of information and opinions.)

WIKIPEDIA
— LOBBYING IN THE UNITED STATES (DIERSEN: To be a lobbyist, you must be paid to lobby. I have never been paid to lobby for anything. So therefore, I have never been a lobbyist and I am not a lobbyist. But outrageously, DuPage County treats like I am a paid lobbyist to justify its interfering with my functioning as a member of the media.) 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lobbying#United_States
(FROM THE POSTING: Lobbying in the United States describes paid activity in which special interests hire well-connected professional advocates, often lawyers, to argue for specific legislation in decision-making bodies such as the United States Congress.)
