St. Paul Mayor and Media Mum on Journalism Crackdown

I’d like to write a long essay about this, but what more needs to be said?  Local police conspire with the feds to target and bully journalists who aren’t obviously willing to toe the company line.  The cops and the mayor go in front of the complicit corporate media and tell bald-faced lies about what has been happening, and no one bats an eye.  They must believe they will get away with it.

Is this what we want to call democracy?  

The cracks in the veneer are growing.  Who knows what hell will be unleashed when the veneer is finally stripped away?
