Glenn Beck’s Own End Times Foretold

Speak no evil

No matter if they are right-wing or center, or whatever, seems that the circle of "do"s and "don't"s for the American media is getting tighter everyday. It is not necessary to have government  over them. The means are now more obvious, they are in sight, but nobody does anything to defend freedom of expression.

Take all the lies about the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq that created a mess in the media, imposing a strong barrier against information to the public, and the media professionals censured and even fired by their employeers. Take Helen Thomas, fired for her criticism of, as she says, Zionists. "I knew exactly what I was doing." "Everybody is in the pocket of the Israeli lobbies." “American people do not know that the Israeli lobbyists have intimidated them into believing that every Jew is a persecuted victim forever—while they are victimizing Palestinians." As Dylan sang decades ago, “Without freedom of speech, I might be in the swamp.” Beware of the alligator.
