Democracy at Work

Oregroanian Sep 14, 2007 page 1A: An article titled —Doe! State riles folks by taking deer—. This article states, “Hundreds call to complain about Oregon officials removal of a Molalla family’s two animals.” In a democracy, anyone has an equal right to express their opinions. This is good. Did we hear from any Oregonians that agreed with the states position? Is that one side press?

However, what is not good, is that the management of the Oregroanian has the sole RIGHT to put whatever it chooses on the front page or anywhere it its paper. This is good for the Oregroanian but not for the citizens of Oregon. We see only what the Oregroanian wants us to see and then with a slant that fits their agenda. The opinion of hundreds of people in a state that contains 3.6 million people is of little consequence to make the front page of any newspaper. The question is why did it make the front page. Because it sells papers? Because it is important to world peace? Is it about the law? The owner of the deer said he doesn’t care about the law. Is the owner of the deer above the law? Why do we have law? Is the Oregroanian out to control the law? Is the Oregroanian out to establish anarchy?

Again, on page C1 is a story showing 16 people demonstrating to give sanctuary for those who are in the US Illegally. Does everybody with a cause that can gather 16 people get a full-page picture and article on the front page of a section in the Oregroanian? The same questions as above need to be answered. Why are these issues being singled out for publication and giving attention over the concerns of the other 3.6 millions people living in this state?

The only answer is agenda.

The Oregroanian only prints what wants you to know about. Is that why we believe in freedom of the press? Is the press really free? When freedom of the press was added to the laws of this country, there existed 10 of thousands of newspaper owners, in a country that had less citizens than Oregon has today. Presently, there are less than 100 newspaper owners in the country. This is not what our founding fathers fought for nor is it FREEDOM OF THE PRESS.

How many other papers does the owner of the Oregroanian also own and control? Is that too much power in one unelected official’s hands?
