"free speech " v "freedom of the press"

This is where my wagon leaves the trail so to speak.
How is reporting the results which have already occurred, prematurely, across the country equate to” free speech” ?
I realise there is a court case on this.
I really hope the defendant and media supporters lose for the sake of democracy and freedom of speech. Not free speech !
Free speech doesn’t and never has nor ever shall exist and I don’t appreciate the rhetoric.
Why should someone in Vancouver have to know that their vote won’t count in a federal election before they have even voted ?Or at least be of that opinion and not bother going to the polls as result ?
There’s a reason for the law and it isn’t so some people can squawk about “free speech”.

Or supposed lack of.
