World Press Freedom Day

To mark World Press Freedom Day, the New York Times is taking down its paywall for three days.

   Good situation
   Satisfactory situation
   Noticeable problems
   Difficult situation
   Very serious situation

Our esteemed president believes that "freedom of the press" means that the press is free to write laudatory stories about him. The core of his political calculus is to attack press freedom. His press secretary's main job is to reinforce his lies with a dead-eyed look of someone who knows that their soul has long ago been sold on the cheap.


Among the major Anglophone countries, which proclaim themselves as beacons of freedom, press freedom is only "satisfactory". After a few more years of this miserable excuse for a leader, press freedom in the U.S. will probably be downgraded.

But hey, the Orange Fascist is doing what he can to shore up and distract his base. Whenever he is in trouble, he starts screeching about abortion and his lapdogs in the "no longer either moral or a majority" eat that shit up.
