Politicians Crushing Your Press Freedom

ACTION ITEM

 

I sent Congress a letter using DownsizeDC.org's Obey the Constitution Campaign. I urge you to do the same. You may copy or edit my comments…

 

Reporters Without Borders ranks the U.S. just 46th in press freedom. (http://rsf.org/index2014/en-index2014.php#) This is YOUR fault, because YOU have encouraged the following transgressions…

 

* Authorities tracked and read the emails of FOX's James Rosen.

 

* The Justice Department seized Associated Press phone records.

 

* Glenn Greenwald risks arrest for publishing the Snowden leaks.

 

* Freelance journalist Barrett Brown faces a 105-year prison term for posting ALREADY PUBLIC information! (http://bit.ly/1odj8GU)

 

FIX THESE PROBLEMS. The First Amendment says Congress shall make NO LAW abridging freedom of the press. DO THAT!

 

America should be #1 in all freedoms, NOT 46th! FIX IT!

 

–END OF LETTER–

 

You can send your letter using DownsizeDC.org's Educate the Powerful System.

 

You will receive a copy of your letter to Congress via email. Please share your letter with friends. Ask them to take the same action.

PS: A long-time Downsize DC supporter, Joe Plummer, has a talent for summarizing long, important books. His first book, “Dishonest Money”, did this for G. Edward Griffin's “The Creature from Jekyll Island.”

 

Now he’s working to do the same thing for Carroll Quigley's “Tragedy and Hope.” Professor Quigley told the tale of extraordinary wealthy men, shoving an entire world into war.  Mr. Plummer's more reader-friendly version is “Tragedy & Hope 101.” To learn more, including how to read the book for FREE, please check-out Joe’s Indie-Go-Go campaign: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/tragedy-hope-101
