The silent media.

I have a question for the media, why the silence on the exorbitant gas prices?

The media rants and raves about Charlie Sheen and the like. The media screams First Amendment when anyone tries to stop them talking about something they want to report on. So why the silence on the gas prices that are destroying America? Why do we just hear "experts say the price may climb to $XXX"? Who are the so called experts? The speculators who are driving the price up out of pure greed? Why isn't the media demanding the government step in? The government sets the prices for electricity and many other things including minimum pricing for cigarettes and liquor. They tell farmers what they can sell their wheat/grain for. Why don't they tie the price of wheat/grain to that of oil?

Why the silent media? The founding fathers put the First Amendment in the Constitution to protect the citizens from the government by insuring the press could report the truth of what is going on. By insuring the press would be the true voice of the people. What I'm seeing is that the press has now become nothing more than the voice of the government and big business. Who are the parent companies of most media outlets? Multinational corporations? Do they have America's best interest at heart? I don't think so. Our government is selling our lives down the river and the media instead of using the First Amendment as the Founding Father hoped they would to defend American citizens is supporting the subjugation of America by their silence.

"When they came for the Jews I said nothing, when they came for the Gypsies I said nothing, when they came for the Christians I said nothing and so when they came for me there was no one left to say anything."

So I ask again why the silent media?
