Bennett and Dershowitz Team Up on Failure of the Press
|Strange bedfellows politically, William J. Bennett and Alan M. Dershowitz wrote a column together in the Washington Post. This pairing is like a journalistic version of the Odd Couple. Though from the conservative and liberal wings of American politics, they united for what they agree is a critical failure of the media in dealing with Islamic intimidation. |
“When we were attacked on Sept. 11, we knew the main reason for the attack was that Islamists hated our way of life, our virtues, our freedoms. What we never imagined was that the free press -- an institution at the heart of those virtues and freedoms -- would be among the first to surrender.”
