"If you think there is freedom of the press in the United States,
I tell you there is no freedom of the press...
They come out with the cheap shot.
The press should be ashamed of itself.
They should come to both sides of the issue and hear both sides
and let the American people make up their minds."

I think it's obvious to even the dullest person by now that the media doesn't report news and events in a truthful light. Everything that might actually infuence the average voter's thinking is presented with a spin to have them think a certain way. Usually to rally support for things that shouldn't even be on the table. Think!

What both sides of the issue ? ? Whose interpretation of the sides ? At this point in media history, all sides are suspect.

There is a big difference between 'information' coming from a loud speaker that you have no control over and that found in a book of non-fiction. Anything being blared from a loud speaker is suspect -- the same is true for broadcast 'news.'
