The Latest Media Assault on Freedom

by James Bovard

“Prominent journalists are calling for the media to champion a ‘pro-democracy’ bias in how they portray politicians and government agencies. But tub-thumping for democracy — or at least for politicians who claim to be pro-democracy — is a poor substitute for exposing the proliferation of government abuses. Freedom will be the victim if journalists grasp a new pretext to portray government as a trustworthy savior.” (05/09/22)
