Re: “Government shouldn’t monitor media” (Off the wire, 2-26).
This Walla Walla Union-Bulletin editorial is outraged, as it should be, at the mere suggestion that the federal government might monitor how media outlets gather news – First Amendment and all of that.
Isn’t it revealing, however, how the sphinxlike liberal media utters not a word about the bull in the china shop that is the Obama administration? I guess it depends on whose ox is being gored. In the meantime, the Obama administration gores its way through 25 rules of law, including religious freedom, separation of powers and much of the U.S. Constitution.
Perhaps when cooler heads prevail we will one day have a free press again that reports the truth, independent of the influence of unions, Democratic money bundlers and a corrupt Congress.
