Media enables attacks on freedom
I lived to see the presidential glass ceiling shattered by an African-American, a man of integrity. Whether or not we agree with President Barack Obama’s political agenda, I feel it’s universally agreed he is a good man. I guess I will live to witness the shattering of the same glass by a woman. Unfortunately, I feel it’s universally agreed that Hillary Clinton is a sad choice to break history (“Who is helping Clinton make this another ‘Year of the Woman?’ Mostly, it’s Trump,” Oct. 28).
She is no statesman and certainly not a person representative of woman who have ethics and values — which no longer appear to matter if The Baltimore Sun’s reporting is to be the judge. I fear for the future of my grandchildren and how they may suffer under the media-supported push to obliterate capitalism in favor of left wing socialism.
The press certainly spares no words reporting the antics of those who oppose the liberal agenda. That to me is frightening as history shows that the control of the press by those who wish to totally oppress the people is key to achieving a totalitarian state — Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler being the perfect role models.
I will survive Ms. Clinton’s reign, but I so worry that the day will come that my grandchildren’s children will not know the meaning of freedom. Unless we raise the bar of reporting truth equally to all, America will no longer be synonymous with freedom.
