Immunizing American Free Press from US Control

In our rush and to protect our venerable free press from government interference, we've allowed our free press to become willing tools of foreign concerns.

Nowadays we seem to trust foreign governments and take 'news' from foreign contractors and organizations at face value over our own government and domestic concerns.

Our founding fathers, while striving to ensure the press' freedom, were loyal to our nation. I can't imagine them posting articles from the London Times or editorals from Barbary Pirates and take them at face value.

Instead, we get Rathergate, Reutersgate and the like. While turning over every rock looking for domestic conspiracies, we willingly ignore those who conspire to do us ill will or harm.
