Uninhibited speech without a doubt was thought by our founders to be integral to freedom and an oppression-free future. So they included it in the first of the 10 great Amendments. By putting special rights of the press in the First Amendment, right alongside freedom of religion, they telegraphed the importance they placed on the need for freedom of and for information. They did this not out of any particular love for those that would take to the pen or to the printing press, but to protect them, so that they could protect us.
And what have the modern day-media done with that privilege? They have turned it upside down and on its head. Instead of using those extended rights to protect the people from the government, they have instead chosen to protect the government from the people.
Media: protectors or prison guards?
Professionalism and honesty, two indispensable accreditations required in journalism, have been replaced with dishonesty and disgrace. They have chosen to use the exceptional privilege bestowed upon their profession in pursuit of an unattainable socialist utopia. And in lieu of exposing Obama’s lies, deceit, fraud and felonies, every effort they have employed has not been to inform the American people, but to withholding information from them.
The Founding Fathers understood that a free and open press would serve as the gatekeepers of freedom and keep the curtain of the Great and Powerful Oz from obscuring his activity form the people. Those gatekeepers have become the guardians of the gate which keeps the people out, and the Great and Powerful Oz manipulating the controls behind the obscurity of those dreadful and very treacherous curtains. Each of them should be embarrassed and ashamed, but none of them are either.
Who is really to blame?
For sure all Americans can and will blame Obama and the Socialist Democratic Party for the mess and mayhem they have wrought as of now, and for the greater woes yet to come. But as Jefferson and Washington understood, as sure as summer turns to autumn and autumn gives way to winter, tyrants will always do what tyranny demands. Those who perpetrate misery, will sometimes answer to the people, but they will always answer to God.
However, when the true history of the dismantling of America is written, the dereliction and the culpability will be laid at the feet of those who had forsaken the Founding Fathers, the Constitution, the American people, and the special rights they were given.
