It’s a ban that could be replicated across the country.
A new book, The Big Brother: How Big Brother Changed America, says Big Brother fans have a right to a magazine ban as long as it doesn’t violate their First Amendment rights.
“This is an assault on our constitutional rights and an assault to our culture,” said Chris Christie, author of the book.
“It’s an assault against the American dream.”
It’s not just Big Brother.
The book also claims a ban on magazines could be used against celebrities and people who have had a public relationship with celebrities.
Christie says there’s a growing awareness of this growing concern.
“When you have people who don’t have any ties with the celebrities or the big name entertainers, you’re really going to have a problem,” he said.
In California, the law is a response to a national trend of celebrities being banned from magazines, which can be seen in a national poll from CBS News.
The poll shows that one in five people say that celebrities are becoming less likely to appear in magazines.
The survey also shows that about a third of Americans believe celebrities should be able to publish books, movies, music and other entertainment.
Some states are taking action.
New York Gov.
Andrew Cuomo has signed into law a bill that would make it illegal to ban a magazine from publication.
And in Georgia, lawmakers are considering a bill which would ban the publication of books, music, and video games.
“I think we are seeing the dawning of a new era in America where we are going to see people with a little more freedom to express themselves and make their own decisions,” Christie said.
The Big Brother author says it’s an idea that’s been around for years.
He believes that in this country, freedom of speech is a bedrock principle and he believes the Big Brother laws are necessary to keep the government in check.
He says the laws are also necessary to protect the First Amendment and the rights of the press and the people who work in the media.
The author of The Big Book says that the government has to enforce the law to prevent the next Big Brother from happening.
