'Cotto/Gottfried': First Amendment auditing: Why is it so important? Rogue Nation's Captain Awesome explains.

Almost everyone has heard about tax and unclaimed property audits, but what about the First Amendment sort? This has experienced widespread growth over the last few years and it looks like no end is on the horizon. Essentially, a First Amendment audit takes place when an individual, while recording with some device, checks to see if his or her freedom of speech and assembly rights are respected by a government authority. Among First Amendment auditors, 'Captain Awesome,' a tongue-in-cheek moniker for the fellow who runs the YouTube channel Rogue Nation, is highly popular. Why does he commence with his audits and what does he hope to achieve from his auditing? Captain Awesome explains about this, and much more, on 'Cotto/Gottfried.'
