Does Alaska Senate candidate Joe Miller believe in a free press?

The Associated Press reported earlier today the security guard who handcuffed Alaska Dispatch editor Tony Hopfinger at an event for U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller could face assault charges.

The incident took place inside an Anchorage school on Sunday, Oct. 17, but this incident raises some very serious questions that go far beyond a candidate’s desire to control his message on the campaign trail. One of the United States' founding principles is a free press, but it appears Miller and his operatives disregarded this basic American ideal in Anchorage over the past weekend.
