Here are 2 very good articles that talk about the current US administrations intimidation tactics. Everything they do (seems) perfectly legal. However, how can you claim to live in a country with freedom of the press when they intimidate reporters and label people as traitors for brining up any opinion that doesn’t agree with theirs? The first instance of this that really caught my attention was when Alan Greenspan said publically that he thought Bush’s tax cut wouldn’t help the economy. Republicans came out in the press and labelled him as a traitor, un-american and called for him to step down.
Next is an interesting article by Walter Cronkite comparing Ashcroft’s changes to the justice department to an inquisition.
