Rights and Reason: Alito on commercial speech

More from Senator Mike DeWine (R-OH), this time asking Judge Alito about his vote on The Pitt News v. Pap, a commercial speech case involving a Pennsylvania law that allowed newspapers affiliated with colleges and universities to accept free alcohol advertising, but criminalized any paid alcoholic advertising.

Alito’s answer: the Pennsylvania law was too narrowly tailored. My interpretation: good, but not great.
