You say there is a big difference between freedom and conflict of interest, between half truths and propaganda, between self censorship and outright bowdlerization of our judgment. What else could we expect from a giant that not only feeds on public opinion, but more so, on the clout of the powers that be?
Even in decent times, poor writers have nothing else but the richness of words and the brimming angst in this world. And yet you insist to besmirch these only wealth we could ever have.
The stakes may be high but we will never cower. Even if you leave us to wage our war in silent dissent.
