Usually if someone with knowledge and experience saw something wrong with our policies, they permitted to stand up say that things need to change.Individuals are bound to be bias of course the media does have the fallible taint of the human touch. However, the media must persevere; the responsibility is too great to falter to political pressure from either extreme. What matters are the facts, information & truth. Freedom doesn't only mean the presence of access but it also means the absence of impediment.The public must be informed and involved, it’s our responsibility in a democracy.

Remember when shock-jock Don Imus used racist and misogynistic terms to refer to a women's college basketball team? Well, it took CBS two weeks to fire him for that but it only took them TWO DAYS to fire a respected General from Iraq for speaking out against the president on the war.

CBS shouldn't be censoring or firing people for speaking their mind. I signed a petition urging CBS to re-hire General Batiste -- can you join me at the link below?

There's more information on the firing on that page, too.
