Have more to add? News tip? Tell us

As a senior citizen I literally had chills down my spine when it came out this week that the FCC was sending monitors in to study newsrooms.

For those who think that Fox News and other conservative media should be controlled, perhaps the next administration may want to study your favorite news outlet. We do have a Constitution to protect a free press. I am hearing little from the news media. Why?

Go back and read what Hitler did before he gained control of Germany and then tried to rule the world. People stood by silently and watched him gain power.

We have been given a precious gift by our ancestors, let us not lose it by standing silently and watching this happen.
