“This democracy ...”

“... only works with a free and unfettered press.”

Thomas Jefferson knew this when he stated a preference for newspapers without a government, as opposed to the other way around. There is no American citizen, regardless of political affiliation or personal taste in cable news networks, who should want it any other way. It astonishes yours truly to no end, that it has taken any segment of mainstream journalism this long to awaken to this absurdity. It is equally appalling, that so many Americans would acquiesce to this absurdity in high office up to now.

It is in such actions that tyranny begins its ascension. We have the last century alone to prove this. Our venerable Republic will fall as did Rome before her, if such behavior continues unchecked.

“Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” (Proverbs 14:34) God bless America. HOO-rah.

In negotiation techniques, that move is testing the limits. It is not necessarily an indication of malice but a simple recon to identify the range of options.

What's great is how the rest of the networks are smart enough to realize that they could be the next Fox. Furthermore, they have the courage of their convictions.

I believe our Constitution provides for the "range of options," a reality not lost on a man who spent ten years as a professor of constitutional law.
