We must censor the news in order to protect Americans from becoming right-wing bigots forming mobs to burn down the local mosques, and to protect Muslims in America from being massacred in the streets of Connecticut by crazed Islamophobes wearing tee-shirts with American flags on them!

“The principle of free speech is not concerned with the content of a man’s speech and does not protect onlyÂ the expressionÂ of good ideas, but all ideas. If it were otherwise, who would determine which ideas are good and where forbidden?Â The government?”
“Once a country accepts censorship of the press and of speech, then nothing can be won without violence. Therefore, so long as you have free speech, protect it. This is the life-and-death issue in this country: do not give up theÂ freedom of the pressÂ — of newspapers, books, magazines, radio, movies, and other forms of presenting ideas. So long as that’s free, a peaceful intellectual turn is possible.” Ayn Rand

Cooked! Like the Ramadan goose.

Lib rag Newsweek gasps for survival.
Newsweek may not be dead but it’s broke. And, it’s broke andÂ for sale so it might as well be dead. It’sÂ only hope is that Barack Obama and democrats will step in and buy it or give it a bailout.
