Response to Surya Gayatri (Reply #5)

Thu Apr 23, 2015, 09:06 AM

83. How many of those nations had robust free speech protections prior to said tragedies?

 

I don't think that Rwanda or the Balkans were known for press freedoms prior to the tragedies that unfolded in those areas.

The US has had a remarkable 200+ year history where press freedom has always been the ideal, even if we have strayed from honoring it during certain dark times. Incendiary language can be countered with better language.
