For the record, I never said I was a libertarian. I do have a soft spot and some respect for Jones though. He's legit. Savage is a hack fueled by fear and hatred; I don't care how many doctorates are hanging on his wall.
Is it "right" for the US government and military to play favorites with different media outlets, offering embedded reporting roles to those who play along? Keep in mind that manipulating media is nothing new to our own government..
I didn't say it was the right thing to do, nor did I say it's in alignment with free market principles. My point is that the US' cultural hegemony is a very real reason for China's decision to limit influx of media from other countries rather than whatever contrived conspiracy Savage (or maybe Jones) could cook up.
