    Freedom of speech ends where libel begins. Some of the worse abuse of freedom of speech is when one one criticizes those in the media. Those in the media themselves bear a responsibility here inc. journalists who will print a story which they know is probably incorrect hoping to make the front page. What makes it worse is that in order to get the 'scoop' they have to sign an agreement that they will not interview others as happens with Haaretz reporters on occasion.
