I think you are also guilty of twisting things about in your perception that the eventual ubiquity of a technology should somehow dictate its patentability:

"But I can't think of a modern Website, especially news Websites, that don't depend on streaming some kind of audio or video to express themselves on the Web. It has become a fundamental part of free expression online"

There is no backlash over patents related to farther/faster wireless transmission of data (which also could be increasingly deemed a 'fundamental part of free expression online').

I think that any wrongdoing on Acacia/PTO's part solely lies in the possible enforcing/allowing of a patent lacking quality and corollarily tend to agree with Berman that a new technology's relationship with a newfound ability (as of the patent's filing date) to express oneself should not come into play regarding patentability.
