Editorial LiveJournalists misrepresent Fourth Amendment, again

The Chronicle's Editorial LiveJournalists misrepresented the Fourth Amendment once again today:

The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution bars the government from conducting warrantless searches and seizures.

No it doesn't. The Fourth Amendment bars unreasonable searches and seizures.

We addressed this back in December (along with the question of the President's inherent powers related to foreign policy and national security) when the Editorial LiveJournalists first made this error.

Maybe we need to send some pocket constitutions over to 801 Texas Avenue.
