Belated Happy World Press Freedom Day!

Their imprisonment and intimidation is a global injustice. When a free media is under attack anywhere, all human rights are under attack everywhere.

Meanwhile, Todd Gitlin asks, in so many words, whether it's time for America to also observe a World Freedom of Assembly Day.
