Reader comments about this quote:
The "liberty" of the press once meant that a despotic government would not interfere with independent expressions of observed accuracy. Today's press (MSM  being a forth {4th} branch of government) does not comport itself within such original meaning. Currently, "the press" is/are theocratic propagators on a mission to convert those not in agreement with the national establishment of religion (by example, the term "right(s)" is misused to advance the god Moloch's dogmas)
