    It sure doesn't sound like it to anyone here.

    Conservatives need to realize that their Silent Moral Majority is neither silent, nor moral, nor a majority.

      •  Congressmen have one more press power (1+ / 0-)

        A member of Congress has the absolute right to publish ANYTHING by reading it into the Congressional Record.  ANYTHING.  Top secret information, troop movements, ANYTHING.  This is an ironclad guarantee even stronger than the First Amendment, specified in the Constitution.

        From now on, with the government explicitly targeting and attacking freedom of the Press, the Congressional Record is going to have to be the primary strategy for revealing government wrongdoing.  We need more like Mike Gravel.
