UNDER OBAMA THE U.S. FALLS TO 49th ON GLOBAL RANKING OF PRESS FREEDOM

"I'LL decide what you peasants have the right to know. Now sit down and shut up."

“I’LL decide what you peasants have the right to know. Now sit down and shut up.”

Another year and another drop for the United States on Reporters Without Borders’ rankings of press freedom around the world. We USED TO take pride in our freedoms, especially our formerly vigorous free press. Unfortunately the Obama administration’s persecution of reporters who dare to depart from the official White House line has gutted press freedom. When even the Democratic Party’s own New York Times describes Obama as “the greatest threat to press freedom in a generation” you know the situation is bad.

Unfortunately the shallow seekers of celebrity who constitute the majority of news personnel these days couldn’t care less. They’re not in the profession to question authority or take risks. They’re in it to become famous and make money. “Stenographers to the Royal Court” is the role they are quite happy to play.
