|Description||Politicians and the media are natural enemies, but in recent times, the relationship has exploded into all-out war. |
When politicians turn the public against the media, everyone loses--especially unbiased and courageous news reporting.
These days, the truth is hard to find. If the press is not believed--or believable--because politicians have turned the public against it, then the press is not free, but under the thumbs of politicians. Without a free press, there is no democracy. That, says Craig Crawford, is where we find ourselves today. If you don't like the news, attack the messenger, and it will go away.
