Really?I suppose they never took into account the couple of years Wilders was calling the shots..newspapers writing apology's for telling the truth about him.Cartoons withdrawn at his request complete silence about his real agenda.This dose not add up.

Do you have some links about newspapers apologizing to Wilders, Jason?

Indeed really? So who does the press represent these days, the government or us - the people?

Thank goodness for free press, (Internet, largest threat to world dictators, most of 'em!) :P
