Celebrate our free press on the 4th



On this, the (almost) fourth of July, given Trump's war on the media, I'd like to remind us of how lucky we are for the Fist Amendment ...

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Without a free and investigative press, would we know about Watergate, Cardinal Law's sex abuse cover-up, what's going on in war zones? I don't think so.
