The 4th (now extinct) power

The 4th power. I grew up thinking the press was the fourth power; the perfect tool for citizens to keep their governments on a short leash.

No wonder castro dismantled the free media within months of taking power. No wonder Chávez has been following his steps, one by one, in Venezuela.

The free media in the US was my last hope; until a few years ago I started realizing the 4th power, here in the US, is also gone.

I should have had taken my master in... crustaceans?

Amen girl. Sad isn't? What's more sad is that most Americans refuse to see the truth about the media.
