So, does the First Amendment, specifically the free press and free
speech clauses, apply for expression created and transmitted or
transported from outside our borders into the U.S.? By radio, mail,
phone or Internet?

What about expression made by American citizens not actually standing
on U.S. soil? For example, a correspondent for an American newspaper?
Or an American running a Web server in Siberia?
