    Culture shock...'sucking off' the US means the same as sucking up to the US. I don't think that's what they're doing. I reckon the whack-jobs are those who see the exposure of illegality and wrong-doing in the corridors of power as treason. You're such an authoritarian, Eco.

    Spare me the petty, and intellectually dishonest, insults. Not everyone wants to suck traitors dicks just because they acted against the US. The little Frency org doing so is just trying to get free publicity and support from scumbags that will support anything anti-US.

    Go sell this report to the hairy backed fundies, I'm sure they can use it in the next episode of Farfur.

    You are apparently in denial of the real world. It's a real world report. 46th, below Romania. Try to get something on your radio except Radio Free Africa. Drill a well for the locals and don't hump the natives, you know, that all American image needs to be unsullied. Maybe you can get the Vatican to give you a blessing on your news sources, that should help, don't you think?

    And how about you take of the arrogant nationalistic blinders and do the same? Look at the top of the list and tell me what countries have put journalists in jail (yes the US has done that on GITMO), and where media ownership is exclusive to citizens only and media conglomerates are allowed to not only own a lot but clearly influence content and opinions of basic news programs?

    What is bull**** is this nationalistic arrogance going on in the US. It blinds you all from the real truth that media organisations like MSNBC and Fox News, Newscorp and other media empires are a large part of the problem. Add to that the US government treatment of journalists and sources and your ranking is well deserved. There is nothing "free" about the US media landscape.. they are utterly biased and blind to anything happening outside the US.

    Spare us, Pete. The article clearly states that Snowden, Assange and Manning are the reason. It flat-out panders to the nutbags who see treason against the US as a good thing. It's nothing more than gathering the Alex Jones fans in a desperate attempt at marketing.

    The article itself engages in CT, claiming that Manning's sentence was about suppressing whistle-blowers and not the laws he broke.

    It's clear as day to any non-biased observer.

    But Pete's claims are not backed up by the article. Mine are.

    From the article:

    The whistleblower is the enemy. Hence the 35-year jail term imposed on Private Chelsea/Bradley Manning for being the big WikiLeaks source
    That's flat-out CT.

    One cannot deny that the article is, in fact, engaged in CT.
