Attack on the free press? I dont consider Fox News part of the free press. To be a free press, the for one should not have a political agenda that they constantly push openly while claiming the opposite. Fox News is the mouth piece of the GOP pure and simple.
Attack on freedom of speech? Well sadly in the US "freedom of speech" also means freedom of responsibility for spreading lies and miss-information. It use to be that media out-lets that were considered serious, were called on their lax reporting. Now days, Fox News gets away with pretty much anything.. may it be the anti-education attacks their anchors make or the out right crazy conspiracy crap they pull. Nancy Grace not believing Fox News own weather man that the radiation coming from Japan was minimal on the west coast of the US.... really takes the top spot for me at the moment.. what an idiot of a woman. But sadly it is not the only example of their anchors with college degrees playing people with no high school education.
Sorry but Fox News dug this hole they are in, and the fact that Media Matters has the balls to call them (and other media outlets too) on their miss-information, lies and propaganda should be applauded rather than scowled on. Someone has to keep the media in check, especially the serial liars and propaganda stations.
