We have to accept that newspapers, magazines, can publish things that are offensive to some, as long as it's within the law, that's what we should defend.

That's what we should defend. The politicians, my job, is not to tell a newspaper what to publish or what not to publish. My job is to uphold the law that they can publish things that are within the law.
