    It's the media's job to keep the government under scrutiny, which is why it's important to have a free press.

    The government is quite capable of blowing it's own trumpet but they  are quite reticent when it's comes to their screw ups.

    Because "Those the gods wish to destroy first send them mad", would you consider this period of history sane ?
