A free press can range from heavily suppressed to watchdog of public interests to excesses aimed at attacking people or crushing competition.
Very good idea and artwork!!!
Excellent, mr. Greenberg ! :)
I think the problem isn't so much that we have any "attack press" as such, but that they're attacking the wrong targets. When Edward Snowden's NSA reveleations hit, the US press' first reaction was to attack Snowden. When riot police were beating up 14 year-old girls at Occupy protests, the US press' first reaction was to attack Occupy... you get the idea.
Sadly, investigative reporting as I remember it from my youth, during the Vietnam/Watergate Era, is pretty much dead at a time when we really need it.
I won't speak for the rest of the world, but here in the bad old USA, we could perhaps use a little more "press excess".
