And while we are on the subject of Freedom of the Press, and of Speech...

Nice to see the New York Times revealing its lib-fascist roots.... Yeah, maybe Mark Steyn ought to be jailed for writing that article in McLeans.  Freedom of Speech, well, it is just so, you know... Old Fashioned...   J.D.

The New York Times, scrupulously fair as always (cough), suggests that it might be time for the United States to reconsider this antiquated idea of "free speech" and join the rest of the world in prosecuting people like Mark Steyn: American Exception - Unlike Others, U.S. Defends Freedom to Offend in Speech - Series -

From Jihadwatch:
New York Times isn't sure that free speech is such a good idea
The original New Duranty Times headline on this appalling story was "Out of Step with Allies, U.S Defends Freedom to Offend in Speech," but now they have changed it to "Unlike Others, U.S. Defends Freedom to Offend in Speech" -- softening the "out of step" charge a bit, but not too much. The story glides from the Canadian case against Mark Steyn to a discussion of Nazis and racial epithets, without a shadow of a hint of the fact that what Steyn said was worlds away from Nazism or racism, but was instead essentially a straightforward presentation of Islamic supremacist statements made by Muslims. If that's hate speech, so was reporting what Hitler said in 1935. ....
