    Beautiful little article about how Obama is destroying press freedom.

    Duckman, I totally agree with you about Obama breaking his campaign promise to be more transparent. It definitely pisses me off that he has gone after whistleblowers.

    But I disagree that it is Obama who is “destroying press freedom”. I think corporate ownership of the media did that a while ago. Fox News predates Obama by quite a while.

    Still, that is no excuse for Obama’s behavior. Although if I were up against the likes of Rush Limbaugh and most of Fox News, I might react just as badly.
