In the Interest of a Free Press: Links to Articles and Video on the Malheur Wildlife Refuge Situation

Free Press: One element of a free society

Evidently, there is an effort to block alternative media coverage of the situation at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, where a group has taken over a federal building as a protest over injustices perpetrated against ranching families.

Pete Santilli is covering the situation on the ground.  Last night he posted a video describing how the FBI is seeking to shut down alternative coverage of the situation.  He believes that the motivation is so that the federal government can have only mainstream media present who will allow them to feed them whatever narrative they wish to have published.  He points out that this would endanger the lives of men, women and children on the ground, perhaps enabling another Waco situation.

Also seen in the above video is Michael Emry of The Voice of Idaho News (TVOI).  Emry is on the scene, as is Vicky Davis, who has written articles on TVOI News regarding the event.   Becky Hudson, the Editor of TVOI News, sent me a link to the above articles because Face Book will not allow her or Michael Emry to share.  Vicky Davis has also written a  thought-provoking article asking questions about who owns local authorities in Harney County, the county where this is taking place.

I am posting these links because I think it is essential that we have both sides of the issue to consider and not just the mainstream media’s spoonfed version.  I am not posting my own insights on the matter for awhile.
