Free speech in almost all sectors is now under attack in Russia.
News media are the latest to be censored by Putin's regime.
Before that, a law came up that would ban the use of obscenity in art, cultural and entertainment events. So, what, exactly, is obscene to Putin's government?
In April, a measure passed banning swearing in the media. Not sure what swearing is, either. "Gosh!" "Egad!" "Dang!" "Darn!" "Damn!"
And so it goes. Remember the warnings of one of our country's most prominent jurists: Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
