Im of the mind that the press should be absolutely free to expose anything they like-anytime they want to do it...

They should themselves of course on that principle, be absolutely open to scrutiny themselve's.

Yeah ?

Personaly, I do not believe in absolutes such as perfect freedom, especially in regard to companies such as banks and powerful corporations, they need regulation. As for newspapers or media, They need less regulation by government, and journalists should not be serving the interests of government or the corporate owners.
Deregulation went too far, making corporations almost lawless.
Society needs laws and regulations that are the same for everyone.
take out the word absolutely and I can agree to this."free to expose anything they like-anytime they want to do it"
I'm a little bit wrong and your a little bit right.

It's not Obama, it doesn't matter who gets elected.
The president of the U.S. is just a figurehead for the powers behind the throne.
Those powers are a handful of obscenely rich who own the U.S. and control everything in the U.S.
Elections in the U.S. are a joke.
They have as much importance as the Rose Bowl parade or the World Series.
Personally I feel the World Series has more importance. The outcome doesn't really change anything either
but at least it is usually entertaining.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

I personally DO believe in absolutes.  That's because there's never going to be an ' absolute ' way of exposing wrongdoings by the powers that be...


Aim low and you GET low, aim high and you are likely to get at least a bit more exposure.
