For a republic to survive it's needs a robust independent press willing and able to take on whoever is in power. For most of our country's history we had this but unfortunately no more. Our nation, our freedom and our way of life is at risk because of this.

Instead, we get anchors saying that "the nation is riveted" by by-the-minute coverage for five solid hours of a stricken cruiseliner. Were you "riveted" by this "news?" Me, neither.
