    La Casa Bianca all' assalto della libertà di stampa in USA

    3 dicembre 2005 - Robert McChesney: (fondatore, presidente e caporedattore di Free Press)

    America’s leadership is waging a war against the journalistic standards and practices that underpin not only a free press but our democracy. The Fourth Estate is withering under an unprecedented White House assault designed to intimidate, smear and discredit investigative journalism — and allow the president and his political cronies to lie with impunity. If left unchecked, this and future administrations will continue to:

    * manipulate the media "message" by producing propaganda, putting journalists on the government payroll and tightly scripting all public events;

    * dismiss all dissenting views in the media as biased and politically motivated;

    * undermine public trust in journalism using the right-wing “echo chamber” to sow hostility toward reporters who challenge the official line; and

    * eliminate access to information making it nearly impossible for journalists to investigate vast swathes of the federal government.

    Bush's Media Agenda

    The current administration is more inhospitable to truth and an informed citizenry than any before it. In fact, the administration seeks the opposite: a public that buys a carefully constructed myth over reality. This deception has manifest in seven lines of attack:
