A Brief Look at Irreverence –and Thought Control

July 19, 2017 --

Earlier this month, a video of President Trump, wrestling to the group a CNN Logo got some notoriety. CNN reported that it tracked down the creator of the video (it wasn’t the White House!) and issued a statement, July 5, reporting that the individual who made the video apologized, said he wouldn’t do it again – and CNN added that it reserved the right to release his name.

LPR regards the video as an expression of irreverence, and cites, with approval the observation of Mark Twain: “Irreverence is the champion of liberty and its only sure defense.”

LPR regards CNN’s response as an example of Thought Control, which is the enemy of liberty. (The American people cannot expect that CNN would track down and expose the members of the media-intelligence complex who are leaking information intended to end the Trump presidency.)
