we do not have a free press in the same way that we do not have quality university education. both have turned into indoctrination machines, and you see the results. uneducated college graduates and uneducated newspapers readers who swallow the manure that the liberals are feeding them. what a disgrace! our young people are cheated out of what should have been an excellent education, and they probably do not read newspapers because their professors tell them they lie anyway. we never had this country in such a mess, and at such high cost. that is why someone so undeserving of office could become president. too bad for america.
