The day we lose our freedom of the press in this
country is the day we are no longer living in a
republic. The other news outlets that stood by
Fox News are to be commended. They didn't

"Does not wisdom call, does not understanding
raise her voice?
On the heights beside the way, in the paths she
takes her stand;
beside the gates in front of the town, at the
entrance of the portals she cries aloud:

O simple ones, learn prudence; O foolish men,
pay attention.
Hear, for I will speak noble things,
and from my lips will come what
is right.'" Proverbs 8:1-6
