To sum it up:

The Los Angeles Times wrote a story about Anaheim not benefiting from 
the tax credits given to Disney's Park system.

Disney has retaliated by denying Los Angeles Times reporters access to 
advance screenings of Disney films like THOR RAGNAROK.

In counter-retaliation, the National Society of Film Critics, the Los 
Angeles Film Critics Association, The New York Film Critics Circle, and 
the Boston Society of Film Critics have banned all Disney films from 
their award eligibility.

The writer of this article claims that banning a Los Angeles film critic 
from advanced screenings of the film is a violation of the First 
Amendment.  You'd think that journalists would have at least some 
understanding of what the First Amendment is about...and as a hint, it 
isn't about a journalist's 'right' to see movies before the rest of the 
public can see them.
