Letter: Government intimidation of free press should be a wake-up call

June 14, 2013 

Any time the government of any country harasses, intimidates or threatens the free press or news agencies that is the first step toward communism and the loss of personal freedoms. we have seen this in many countries like Russia, China and many more.

We now have these same acts of harassment out of our government. Even though officials try to deny the fact, their actions are very obvious. To me it is disturbing to see actions like this from our government leadership who we elect to protect our freedoms.

We better wake up and look around to see where we are heading! The future doesn't look too bright for our younger generations.
