Tucker Carlson, in the following video, delineates the CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s “free speech” fiasco with Victor Davis Hanson of the Hoover Institution, who has a long memory and recites the facts about free speech ethics in the media and how there’s been a double standard.
Hanson refers to the present media issues regarding ‘press freedom’ a la CNN as a “psycho-drama”!
CNN has a blemished record when it comes to free speech
Mr. Hanson could not have argued the issue around CNN’s idea of free speech better than anyone: biased or unbiased. Facts are facts, something the controlled U.S. press can’t quite get right!
I totally agree with what Hanson, a “man with a long memory,” puts forth as the history of the press’s ‘battle’ with free speech. The double standard prevails in an obvious corporate-run oligarchical-type [a small group of people having control of a country, organization, or institution (Online dictionary)] of media organizations that pontificate they are the free press.
I contend they are NOT! Why? Only their way of thinking and reporting important events, science, and technology – whatever – prevails and predominates and saturates the digital age. That’s not a free press!
