Pressed Freedom

Yes. I still have the newspaper delivered. Well, I have colleagues who need the work. Each morning I pour my coffee - I give my ass a good scratch - and I sit and read the newspaper cover to cover. Never more than now, the news is slanted to incite and excite. 

FREEDOM OF THE PRESS. 

The news wasn't free. It cost a great deal. Reporters were accosted by journalists who skewed the story from a report to a response. The news was purchased by those wanting to manipulate and palpitate. This morning I realized that FREEDOM OF THE PRESS asks me to surrender my intellectual, political, and societal freedom as it presses me into a politically correct prison. I will not go willingly.
