Would anyone happen to know offhand any good USSupCt citations for the proposition that government is not allowed to tamp down the emotive impact of messages it does not like by limiting the ways in which they're delivered? An gross example of such "content-discrimination as to manner" would be a prohibition of TV advocacy for (or against) some controvesial issue.
I have Cohen v. California, which has language to that effect, and the idea is implied in Brown v. Entertainment Merchants and Winter v. New York, but I'm looking for something that is more direct.
Off-list responses are fine, if you prefer.
