New York Times reporter James Risen called the Obama administration “the greatest enemy of press freedom that we have encountered in at least a generation”, explaining that the White House seeks to control the flow of information and those who refuse to play along “will be punished.” James Risen is one of the most famous reporters in NYT,who has unveiled many white house scandles and is currently fighting a fierce court battle with the federal government over his protection of a confidential source, warned that press freedom is under serious attack in today’s America.


Risen claimed that the Obama administration wants to “narrow the field of national security reporting” and “create a path for accepted reporting.” Those who stray from that path, he cautioned, “will be punished.”


The result is a “de facto Official Secrets Act,” Risen explained, making the current White House “the greatest enemy of press freedom that we have encountered in at least a generation.” And the media has been “too timid” in pushing back against the onslaught.

This case will tensify the tensions between the US government and the press,just fews day ago,after American cops shoot at two Afican Americans,the police arrested two reporters who are from Washington Post and Huffington Post respectively.

However,put this case aside,what makes me wonder is they do not have press censorship,how could the government and the press in America get along well during the past decades?Whatever the press said or did,could the goverment officials take it pretty well?

Its free-er than anywhere else and its written into the constitution dumbf*ck.
Your own mind is a sacred enclosure into which nothing harmful can enter except by your permission. Arnold Bennett
