    By what logic are democracy and freedom of the press synonymous. To start with the press is not free. It is the mouthpiece of the powers that pay to publish it. Those powers are mostly anti-democratic. They are for freedoms and advantages for themselves, whether they are political parties or private businesses who advertize. The 'free' press is an organ of deceit, lies, distortion, war mongering, treachery and suppression of freedom. Examples abound all over the world and through history. This so called press includes the so called media as well as all public venues, e.g mosques, churches and temples. They all are sources of treachery by which to get you to surrender your liberty by whatever little bit to the mouthpieces of your oppressors.
