Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that in the writings of the Founders they envisioned the press as being the watchdogs of government.
Today we have a revolving door between the Obama administration and "journalism", with 21 reported journalists now officially work for Obama.
And now Congress proposes to be the watchdogs of journalism.
God help us and God save the republic.

2013: The “Watchdogs” are being hired by the government.

Richard Stengel, the top editor of Time magazine for the past seven years, is planning to step down as managing editor for a new job at the U.S. Department of State, sources familiar with the situation tell POLITICO and Capital New York.

Was Mr Stengel amongst the 21 now working for Obama or is he “catch”.....22? - [ sorry, I could NOT resist]

It used to be bankers and “industrialists” that see sawed between private enterprise and the government, now its urinalists.

“God help us and God save the republic.”!
