I feel this type of law would compromise the 14th Amendment, which provides protection of life, liberty, and property, because it may hinder the due process of law and deny persons equal protection of the laws. For instance, if the media swayed public opinion in a case, I don't feel there would be a fair trial because there would be no lack of bias.

The 14th Amendment
No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
