Cases showing court's ideological divide on free speech

Some Supreme Court cases, since Samuel Alito joined the court last year, showing a clear division between conservative and liberal justices.

_Free speech: Scales back protections for government workers who blow the whistle on official misconduct, Garcetti v. Ceballos.

Majority: Chief Justice John Roberts, Justices Samuel Alito,
Anthony Kennedy,
Antonin Scalia,
Clarence Thomas.

Dissent: Justices
Stephen Breyer,
Ruth Bader Ginsburg,
David Souter,
John Paul Stevens.

I don't believe the dissenters voted against our right to free speech.
