The new Star Wars trailer is finally here.
In other news, the President of the United States is continuing to wage war against the media.
Yesterday, Donald Trump tweeted that NBC is fake news, and basically threatened to "challenge" and "revoke" the network's media license as a punishment.
Threatening the media's Freedom of the Press is extremely dangerous for a country that aims to be a Democracy. In America, people have a right to know the truth. The First Amendment is designed to allow journalists to hold politicians accountable to the truth, especially the one who has the highest seat in office. Without this, politicians can get away with lying to the public, distorting the truth, which destroys the essence of freedom, liberty, and Democracy. Out of every American, the President should be the first to respect that right.
In a Democracy far, far away.... there might be a United States President without fascist tendencies. One can only hope for a leader who does not threaten the Freedom of the Press, the First Amendment, dismiss the truth, create his own alternative facts, and does not wage a war against the media.
