Americans don't need just a free press; they need access to accurate information in order to make up their own minds about what they want the government to do.
While it's true that a free press is a prerequisite for the people to have access to the data they need, it's not sufficient.
We currently, despite Democrat attempts to the contrary, have a free press in America.
Yet the systemic left-wing bias of the mainstream media(MSM) – ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, NYT, Washington Post, L.A. Times, etc – means there is little difference between the accuracy of the information most Americans receive and the accuracy of the information people living in Communist China receive.
In both cases, highly skilled propagandists shape, through omission and commission, the news in order to create a false reality the ruling class uses to motivate people to go against what is in the people's best interest and instead support policies that benefit the ruling elites.
