A coalition of more than a dozen news outlets is telling the Obama administration that its ban on the commercial use of drones—and “drone journalism” in general—goes against the First Amendment.

The media groups signing on to the filing include Advance Publications (the owner of Condé Nast, Ars Technica’s parent company), The Associated Press, Cox Media Group, Gannett, Gray Television, Hearst, McClatchy, the National Press Photographers Association, the National Press Club, The New York Times, the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, the Radio-Television Digital News Association, Scripps Media, Sinclair Broadcast Group, the Tribune Company, and The Washington Post.

These outfits can’t even reliably report the news.
