Free Speech--After Government Approval
Just like your meat needs the USDA stamp of approval, so, it would appear does your information. The New York Times and the rest of the American news media should have a similar stamp from the Department of Information. What? There is no Department of Information? How can that be?
For example this Wikileaks guy, Julian Assange. Of course he should be thrown in jail for publishing those facts. Some facts can dangerous. They might get in your brain and actually make you think that the US is not fighting for Truth, Justice, and the American Way--which is just wrong, because, well, who invented Superman, anyway? Americans, that's who!!!!! So there.
Here's an interview with that guy Assange who actually thinks that journalists should have the right to publish facts that might make Americans question how the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are being waged, and even worse, whether we should be there at all.
I think there should be a law against asking questions. Who knows what unsavory answers you might get.
