Freedom of Press in Danger

Written by 

On Sunday May 9, President Barack Obama presented the commencement address for the graduates of Hampton University in Hampton, Virginia. The speech was chilling, but not in the way that one would expect on such an occasion. Instead, the "chills" were a product of the Marxist comments that President Obama poured over the unsuspecting spectators.

In the middle of his commencement address, Obama said:


You're coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don't always rank that high on the truth meter. And with iPods and iPads; and Xboxes and PlayStations ... information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation. So all of this is not only putting pressure on you; its putting new pressure on our country and on our democracy.
