Liberals Want To Limit Freedom of the Press

 

The LA basin has its panties all in a twist over the possibility the Koch brothers, some of the richest people on this earth, will buy the LA Times.

Unions, politicians, Times workers are all threatening various action, including passing legislation banning a purchase by the Koch brothers. I suspect that legislation would be deemed unconstitutional, but…

So what is the great sin of the Koch brothers?

Well, they donate to Libertarian publications, causes, and candidates. Further, their money comes from, are you ready for this —  OIL!

Ten public employee unions voiced their opposition, as well as the Senate President Pro Tem and the Assembly Speaker.

You may recall the outrage when a conservative bought the San Diego Union Tribune. Apparently, only liberals like Pinch, Arthur Ochs Sulzberger of the New York Times, is permitted to own a newspaper.

A, J. Liebling (The New Yorker) famously said, ” “Freedom of the press is guaranteed only to those who own one.”

Only liberals are permitted to have freedom of the press, if you listen to liberals.

Strange.
