Freedom takes strong stomachs . . .
Fang-Face writes "There is
a Charles Haynes commentary on the recent SOFA report at First Amendment Center. There's isn't really anything new in it, but he does examine some amusing dichotomies. For instance:
Despite this readiness to rein in the press, many Americans still want to know more about what the government is doing. Half of those surveyed, for example, say they have "too little access" to information about the federal governmentâ€™s war on terrorism.
Talk about a disconnect. Without a free press, where would Americans get information about government actions?
Whence such confusion of thought? Perhaps it's contagious?"
