The hypocrisy of Western media over defending the right to offend

If you want to read a wonderful exposure of the hypocrisy of Western media with regard to freedom of the press (defending the right to offend) and how press should not be killed by state or any actors please read the following by Medialens. It also discusses how the West whether America or Isreal or others have happily killed journalists who have offended them. It exposes Western journalism`s “own record of failing to offend the powerfuf” in their own countries and beyond. If nothing else you should be appalled at the violence and threats of violence Michael Moore has had to endure for his brave criticisms of the powerful in America and beyond.
