Memo to Britain

By Christopher B. Daly 

I’ll keep this brief. Just 11 words, in fact:

CONGRESS SHALL MAKE NO LAW ABRIDGING THE FREEDOM OF THE PRESS. 

It has worked here (on the whole) since 1791. As the Brits grapple with the fallout from the multiple disasters in their news media inflicted by the minions of conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch, they might want to consider doing nothing.

Keep calm and carry on and all that. Not to be missed: The Guardian‘s comprehensive coverage.
