Where’s ed­i­to­rial on press rights?

The Daily Herald - - OPINION - Ce­cil Stearns

Re­gard­ing the ar­ti­cle, “Or­lando gun­man said he was IS soldier; Paul Ryan crit­i­cizes FBI”:

The Her­ald ed­i­to­rial board missed an­other big story on this ad­min­is­tra­tion’s du­plic­ity.

A tran­script of the call be­tween the Or­lando shooter and the po­lice was sent to the U.S. jus­tice depart­ment.

The ad­min­is­tra­tion redacted all ref­er­ences to Is­lam, Al Bag­dadi, Al­lah, etc., and then sent it on to the press. But the press had the orig­i­nal ver­sion al­ready and all hell broke loose among those mem­bers of the press who ob­jected to be­ing lied to.

One won­ders what few ob­jected given the last eight years of smoke and mir­rors which most of the press du­ti­fully passes on to us.

So, unique to this lat­est kabuki dance, Obama , through Loretta Lynch, (aka fall guy), quickly re­versed course and re­sent an unredacted ver­sion, along with a lame ex­cuse for try­ing to hide the in­tent of the shooter.

This has been go­ing on since the Fort Hood mas­sacre which Obama called “a work­place shoot­ing in­ci­dent.”

Not a word from The Her­ald. Does the ed­i­to­rial group of this pa­per in­clude those three mon­keys that see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil?
