  •  Free Press is a myth. It is a corporate press and (10+ / 0-)

    they see their news as a profit center.  Why pay those pesky expensive reporters when you can rip you copy right out of a feed?  I am surprise at the level of outrage by all of this.  Don't people know that the press, especially the entertainment press (as in Conan the Barbarian) live by the press release?  I thought it was assumed that all entertainment news was PR bullshit.  Next thing you know, there will be a diary expressing outrage that Dancing With the Stars is fixed.  And did you know that professional wresting is fixed too?
