Freedom of the press is a wondrous thing... for those able to afford the presses.
Never forget the power advertisers have over a paper's content.
And those with internal power offering the ability to make their ONE opinion/belief/cause to appear much more massive by crouching behind the name/banner of the paper.
The above can be witnessed when a newspaper has in it's op-ed page the oft-seen The Bee recommends.... then inserts candidate names or or statutes appearing on the ballot, etc.
Replace "Bee" with your local paper's name.
Seldom will the newspapers using that common tactic ever reveal who is behind the decision to make it appear an entire newspaper and those within stand behind the recommendations..
