Wasn't it just last week that Donald Rumsfeld stated that the freedom of the press was one of the signs that the War in Iraq was successful? No, the war is still in progress and military propaganda is in full-effect.

ArchAngel: the Constitution was voted on by people who faced possible death just for showing up at the polling places.... and were happy to do so.

We have the proof in Iraq, but where is the proof here at home?
I am not saying your stretching the truth, but with a statement like that it would show a whole lot better if you could please provide a link to me that proves the statement true.
In January came news that commentator Armstrong Williams, a syndicated broadcast host, had received a $240,000 payment from the Education Department to promote the No Child Left Behind Act. On a lesser scale, commentators Maggie Gallagher and Michael McManus were paid $21,500 and $10,200, respectively, to advise the Department of Health and Human Services on its marriage initiatives. Unlike Williams, neither were paid explicitly to promote White House policy in their columns.

But Ofcourse they are!
Just as there are no pictures of Dead US soldiers in the US Media - there are supposed to be Pro-US and no Anti-War stories in Iraqi newspaper also! This is not just War on Terrorism, it is also War on Media, as it was shown number of times. If you do not report for US, you are against US, meaning you are in the Bed with the filthy Terrorists.
Anyway, you might wanna check this out:
The media are minimising US and British war crimes in Iraq
Media War was never so Fierce as it is Today.
Too many News Stations, too many Reporters, too many Blogs, too many Sources, too many versions of Truth.

For those of you who say, "what's wrong with this?" I say, why should the truth have to be purchased?
And, even if, somewhere, it's decided to sacrifice freedom of the press for the greater good,
