Bobby Eberle doesn’t understand what a free press is. Does he really believe the government should regulate the press in America?
Yes, there is a freedom of the press, and that freedom comes with responsibilities. There are many classified programs which would be fascinating to know about. But that doesnâ€™t mean I have a â€œrightâ€? to know them. When we are talking about fighting a war on terror, the â€œpublic interestâ€? is also served by seeing to it that the government is able to fight the most effective war possible. The actions by the New York Times hurt this effort, and they should be held accountable for these actions.
