An Exhortation for Freedom of the Press

...even with its flaws.

Jaundiced views of political moves shatter the credibility.

Tattered news can only prove maundered fallibility.

Sauntered news casually eschews truthful probability.

 

Journalistic hubris, as portrayed by the Righteous few.

Is liberalism the reason for the Red, White, and Blue?

The newspaperman always printed and painted.

The news itself was always tainted.

In 1776, a shot was heard; first fired by the printed word!

 

Freedom of the Press,

Protects all the rest,

From subordination,

By leaders of our Nation.

 

So print the words of the Opposition!

(Except in the case of sedition)

Challenge not the Press’ Right

To be the voice that leads the Fight!
