There is no question that the Freedom of the Press is in great danger with the Obama Administration. The strange this about this danger is that the so called "main stream" media is asking for it! They have gotten so out of touch with main stream Americans that the public no longer believes what it reads.
The next step, because newspapers are failing badly, is for the government to bail them out. With the bailout comes control and with control comes ownership. After that we have newspapers that print only what the Czar of Media Relations thinks should be printed. Sounds familiar? It should as it emulates the control that dictators and communist governments have over what the "people" hear and are forced to read. The fairness doctrine is an oxymoron. We must take care that the "labels" they put on programs actually identify what those programs are intended to accomplish. Anyone who thinks to the contrary really have their heads in the sand and are "fodder" for the ruling class!
