So exactly how free is the press in the U.S.?

August 1, 2006

International reports indicated that Condoleezza Rice was told in no uncertain terms that she wasn’t welcome in Lebanon; this following the Qana massacre. More interestingly, it was also reported that she was in talks with the Israelis at the time of the Qana incident, but that they failed to tell her about what had happened, and only admitted to it after Rice’s own people informed her of it many hours later. With allies like Israel, who needs enemies? They’re the walking definition of duplicitous. So what does this have to do with free press? Well, there was little or no mention of this diplomatic embarrassment in U.S. news reports, and the incidents seem too significant to have been casually not covered.
