In case you were not aware, Iran, Russia, China, Cuba, North Korea, and Palestine all have something in common, and now the state of Indiana will have it too. Oh, not sure what I’m talking about? Well, read on…
Mike Pence, Repub governor of Indiana has announced that the state of Indiana will now have a government run news site. That’s right democracy fans, a major player in Repub politics and potential Presidential candidate will be rolling out a department that will write news articles and disseminate them to the media. Just like every dictatorship on the globe!
Yessiree bob, all of you super-patriots can now have your news delivered to you just like Joseph Goebbels did for Nazi Germany (that comment was included because Repubs love to talk about Nazis), Pravda did for the former Soviet Union, the KCNA in North Korea and all the other government agencies that feel the need to limit the power of the free press by giving their own versions of “news”.
It’s great to be able to rely on the Repub party to protect our freedoms, isn’t it? You know, like our freedom to kill each other at random with guns and such. But a free press, well, that’s fine as long as they don’t report anything that Repubs don’t like.
I guess Fox “News” isn’t quite “fair and balanced” enough for them…Sure, I get that. I mean, what could possibly go wrong?
