More examples of a free press.
The owner and head of fox news was wanting to bankroll and head general petraeus bid for president before he got caught up in the current scandal.

I was once told by some einstein that americans are free because we can report on or say most of what we want in a press or to another person. So I bring up the fact that recently the U.S. has authorized indefinite detention and/or killing of american citizens without trial under the NDAA. The person responds "you are free because you can talk about that". My response was, no we aren't free because we can be detained and/or killed without trial under the NDAA, being able to report on that doesn't have any bearing on whether or not it happens or can happen now. In other words, being able to express your lack of freedom alone doesn't make you free.

Edit: I imagine that RT has its own "agendas" when reporting.......
