THE ACLU CAN EVEN SCREW UP THE FREEDOM OF THE PRESS ISSUE
Below is an excellent paraphrase, by many famous Americans, that the ACLU recently published in an article on “Freedom of the Press”.
“The freedom of the press, protected by the First Amendment, is critical to a democracy in which the government is accountable to the people. A free media functions as a watchdog that can investigate and report on government wrongdoing. It is also a vibrant marketplace of ideas, a vehicle for ordinary citizens to express themselves and gain exposure to a wide range of information and opinions.” (ACLU-FREEDOM OF THE PRESS)
The focus of there article was surveillance of journalist, obtaining cell phone records and other 1984/2018 super NSA type violations of privacy. We, (OneFreePress.net), oppose such acts against any American, except for National Security purposes, and with proper (I really feel this word is almost like saying “F’ck”), FISA warrant or AJ approval in an emergency. Providing all requirements are met, fully, honestly…ok, I’m laughing now. Certainly, the FISA warrant procedure is broken as proved by the Obama FISA warrants.
It’s hard to believe that over 40000 warrants issued and only 21 rejected actually reflects proper documentation and adjudication took place:
What is wrong with the ACLU’s article, particularly the unoriginal statement about the importance of the Free Press, ignores a current condition that has already rendered the Free Press as dead or at least needing resuscitation.
With 90% of the media owned by 5 Multi-National corporations, this robust protector of democracy – “watchdog”, is at most a lapdog to 5 corporations. Which at last reference was about 15 majority stock owner Billionaires. They say in Alabama, concerning false statements, “That dog can’t hunt.” This watchdog has lost all credibility during and after 2016 election, that I believe it’s not a dog but a pussy. Sorry, Kitty.
