    Oh, listen to the cry of foul from the journalistic side. The same side that has been reporting from a bias, prejudice and politically motivated objective for years. Hypocrisy shows itself for all to read and hear. You get no sympathy from the masses of informed citizens all across this country.

    Journalism is printing what someone else does not want published; everything else is public relations, the saying goes. Some people don’t like what’s written about them, so they threaten to sue. That’s blaming the messenger. “We need an agency to protect us from so called journalists” – like what, China, North Korea, Russia and other communist countries and dictatorships do? Do you hear yourselves opposing the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution? Dictators hate free speech, so they use censorship to control the flow of information to maintain power. “Our liberty cannot be guarded but by the freedom of the press, nor that be limited without danger of losing it.” –Thomas Jefferson to John Jay, 1786.
