    If said reporters wanted to get a given story out and their superiors wanted the story quashed, they have a multitude of methods to get the story out anyway. The issue is the public's acceptance of sources outside the mainstream media. Luckily the public is more accepting of outside media sources, unluckily the public is more accepting of blatantly false outside media sources, and that is the conundrum.

    People have gotten used to the idea that the press is a source of unbiased news, not opinion news. Even if this was never true, the press 40 years ago or even 20 years ago was less biased than it is now. What we are now seeing is the people realizing the press has a rooting interest, and the inevitable backlash.

    So again, I do consider our press "free" due to lack of government interference. What I don't consider it is fair.

    You don't even know what you are talking about...the people of Iran are fed up with the leadership in their nation...they need and deserve support even if only by words from the free world...something the Muslim and chief Obama was not able to bring himself to...

    And by silent you mean I heard about it repeatedly on the radio this morning on my way to work.

    And it is reported on the BBC, Washington Post, CNN, NY Times- virtually every main stream media- hell even Fox managed to report something other than Trump's tweets.

    But hey- good job trying to start Fake News.

    So when CNN reported the protests in Iran- the protests weren't actually happening?

    The said reporters wouldn't have a job. they won't do it. It's not a free press in any real way.

    The problem is your concept of a 'free press" is similar to the Ideal Gas Law. great as a concept but wouldn't occur in the real world.

    I just wonder why you Rightists are lying about the Media not reporting the protests?

    Oh wait.....you are just following Trump's example.
