Imus Have Missed That...

The land of the free, and the home of the brave!

I always thought that meant free to do as one chooses within reason.

Last I checked freedom of speech was part of that g-d given right that we strive so hard to bring to the rest of the world.

Radio talk shows personify the freedom of speech that is such an integral part of our society. If the media is not allowed to report as they see fit, who will keep the government in check? After all it is the public that ultimately decides who stays, and who goes in the arena of politics, and the media is the tool that keeps the public informed.

To incite violence, is wrong yes, but to voice an opinion? What’s wrong with that?

Who is the one that is to decide where freedom of speech begins, and where it ends? For that matter, who is the one to decide where any freedom begins and ends?
