Is The U.S. Silencing the Really Free Press?

by Diogenes Wednesday, Apr. 09, 2003 at 9:24 AM

The question is: Is the U.S. Government following an active policy of shutting down any outlet contradicting their Lies?

With In-Bedded “Journalists firmly in place the U.S. Government, acting for the Co-Axis of Evil, is making sure that real reporting does not take place. Of course this should not be a big surprise to anyone who has been following the Bush Junta’s Propaganda Machine and their Loyal Serfs in the so-called Free American Press. What I think is mildly surprising is the lengths to which they are going to shut down the free flow of honest information. Violence and intimidation have now joined their former tools of simple disinformation and the untimely deaths of inconvienient individuals. Now we are moving into wholesale, blatant, Police State Suppression.
It is now almost trite to say “The first Casualty of War is the Truth” however, I think many Americans have somehow labored under the false impression that in America it was somehow different.

Here is a selection of articles which show the pattern:
