The purpose of the first amendment of the U.S.Constitution was freedom of POLITICAL speech. I don’t believe the founding fathers even considered pornography as belonging in that category!
The press in this country has always considered exposing political shenanigans its primary duty vis á vis our democratic republic’s form of government. Since the 1970s journalists have come out of jounalism courses with the urge to “make a difference” in the world. Now they have a goal - and in ain’t Conservative!
That is why all the national broadcasters and most of the newspapers are in the tank for Obama - he promises to “make a difference” by bringing change. The problem is that none of them are looking closely at the man nor his message.
I don’t buy a paper or watch a news program to see what kind of difference a bunch of word jockeys made today. I pay them for news of importance made by people that matter in the world - not senile x-politicians and hollywood tooters. Obviously a lot of other people have also withdrawn their MSM support as evidenced by the decline in sales/ratings.
