Who Owns the Press--A "" Chart

"Freedom of the press is not just important to democracy, it is democracy." ―Walter Cronkite, 1980

"If you don't have this freedom of the press, then all these little fellows are weaseling around and doing their monkey business and they never get caught." ―Harold R. Medina

With need an impartial press, free and able to report without any constraints or coloring from any one single party, organization or power possessor... otherwise, George Orwell's 1984 becomes a reality...

Sorry will not sign. Perhaps one can ask the Repugs, such as Issa and McConnell, why they killed the 2006 Shield Law that would have made all of this illegal. Absolutely nothing done by the DOJ in this was illegal. The point is fix the problem not demand blood for following the law. Oh, and while you are talking to the Repugs ask them why in direct contradiction to their current Screaming of Scandal they were screaming at the tops of their lungs along with many Dems for Holder to "Leave No Stone Unturned" to find the leak that threatened National Security in mid June of 2012. Which is what this is about. The AP story/leak endangered of got killed the intelligence source that saved Passenger Lives On A Plane. I am as far to the left if not more so than most BUT Freedom of the Press is not boundless and neither is the Peoples right to know.
