category within the classic example 'a little bit pregnant.' "

i.e. The Patriot Act ... it only infringes "a little" on our freedom!

    The mainstream press doesn't just 'limit' the news they broadcast, they also bombard us with 'opinion-making' to prepare us for more restrictions on our liberties. The press is owned by and influenced by entities that further the take over of the world and perfect the permanent indentured servitude to the ruling class. Mass psychology is a powerful weapon, and legions are succumbing to sheep-like hypnotism. If you want to know what is going on in the world, you will have to look somewhere else besides a news 'broadcast.'

    And the US Consulate in Benghazi suffered a "spontaneous attack" from a mob angry about a ridiculous film...yeah, right...sure.
    Excellent observation from Heinlein

    You're all confusing the "mainstream media" with the press. If you get all of your news from free sources (Facebook, "News" websites, even TV) you're getting exactly what you're paying for, which is to say; not a damn thing.
