Fact: The press overwhelmly favors Republicans

Now watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical,
Liberal, fanatical, criminal.
Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're
Acceptable, respectable, presentable, a vegetable!

This isn't a new problem. The press has always favored the money and Republicans control most of the money.

Biological Ali: Aexia: It was a leak so that automatically makes it okay. Why? BECAUSE SHUT UP THAT'S WHY.

Excuse me?

Information wants to be free. If you leak something, that automatically means you're a whistleblower and beyond reproach. We should never question the motivations of leakers because SHUT UP THAT'S WHY FASCIST.

floor: Weaver95: Fox news complaining about freedom of the press? I don't know if I should laugh or cry....

I think Fox just admitted what they do is not journalism.

I think you both just admitted what you do is not reading.

busy chillin': I read a bunch of the comments from the link. WTF is my problem?

Obama is Hitler? Hyperbole is the most awesome thing ever in the entire universe.

I used to think that, until I realized that hyperbole is worse than Hitler.

Don't let the Fox link fool you. This really is a thing.

"In the Obama administration's Washington, government officials are increasingly afraid to talk to the press,. The administration's war on leaks and other efforts to control information are the most aggressive I've seen since the Nixon administration, when I was one of the editors involved in The Washington Post's investigation of Watergate." - Leonard Downie Jr., a former executive editor of The Washington Post

FTA: "government officials are increasingly afraid to talk to the press, "

Ugh, years ago when I did some government statistics for a state government. I had a reporter call me and ask me questions about some inaccuracies in the data. I thanked him, explained there error in the query, and went about fixing my query. A few days later there was a headline about a secret coverup to produce bad data to make such and such look better than it actually is, citing my data.

The press is totally less free, because reasons. Definitely. Ask them. They're all "Oh man, my freedom."
