The First Amendment allows a governed people security from tyranny. Yet tyranny still manifests itself when the media becomes “a hungry wolf (told) not to eat a raw T-Bone” – as Mr. Rosman illustrated.
Civilized/civil people are not hungry wolves. Sorry, they just aren’t. Those who enjoy the identification might ponder on the personal implications.
When the local newspapers mentioned last year that one of our MU quarterbacks had been seen on the internet “picking his nose”, was this in sympathy to his suffering public ridicule or did it just make the humiliation greater?
I have read articles implying and stating outright that Palin is crazy, power hungry, narcissistic and delusional. Could she sue for defamation? I hope she does. I hope that our Constitution defends all people from wolf packs who seem to enjoy the ‘raw T-Bone’ made from the suffering, humiliation, ridicule and loss of credibility from such bestial behavior.
News needs to be impersonal and just the facts. When it becomes a Roman arena, then we have regressed in the qualities that make up a human being.
