  •  Will this story finally wake the media up ? (none)
    If a Democratic administration wanted to bomb Fox News channel, wouldn't the media be up in arms about the threat to free expression, no matter how bias the reporting of the particular outlet? This is an analogous situation.

    It's like that poem, "First They Came for the Jews:"

    First they came for Al Jazeera,
    but I didn't speak out
    because I didn't work at Al Jazeera...

    Who is safe and who is not safe? Do journalists have to sell out all their ethics and objectivity to insure that they would not be the next ones threatened?
