Comments - America's Free Press ... Not So Free?

I am reminded of Benjamin Franklin's "Apology for Printers" published in the Pennsylvania Gazette, June 10, 1731.  Franklin understood well, the power of the Press and printed word.  He was also well aware of the consequences of printing too much or too little information, even way back when.  Point number eight (from his famous Editorial) states,  "That if all Printers were determined not to print anything till they were sure it wouldn't offend nobody, there would be very little printed."   Nuf said?
