Mueller Report Ends a Shameful Period for the Press


Truthdig has the Chris Hedges piece Mueller Report Ends a Shameful Period for the Press.

It is not only Trump who has obliterated the line between fact and fiction. It is the press. It hyped and reported allegations it never investigated or confirmed. And by doing this, repeating failures of the kind that appeared in its coverage of the invasion of Iraq, it has committed suicide. A nation that lacks a functioning press becomes a tyranny. This is not Trump’s fault, but our own.

Little did the writers of our First Amendment think that we would have to protect the freedom of the press from the owners of the press.
