Keep questioning the establishment

  Dear HCN,
Just wanted to let you know what a great article I thought the essay “Fenced out of Bush’s gated empire” by Mary Sojourner was (HCN, 11/11/02: Fenced out of Bush's gated empire). With so much pressure being put on publishers to only report that which is favorable for the ruling establishment and their political causes, it is so refreshing to read this kind of article. The control of the media, nowadays, is so subtle and does not tend to use the old-fashioned “censorship,” but rather strong financial pressure and, above all, omitting any reference to that which the establishment does not want to hear. So my compliments both to your staff and Ms. Sojourner.
