Keith Olbermann picks up where Gingrich’s speech left off.

GINGRICH: My view is that either before we lose a city, or if we are truly stupid after we lose a city, we will adopt rules of engagement that we use every technology we can find to break up their capacity to use the Internet, to break up their capacity to use free speech, and to go after people who want to kill us, to stop them from recruiting people before they get to reach out and convince young people to destroy their lives while destroying us.

OLBERMANN: If you’re going to destroy freedom of speech, bub, you’ve already lost all the cities.

Rob Kall at OpEdNews.com asks,

Why isn’t Mainstream Media Skewering Gingrich for Anti Free-Speech Remarks?

Think about he way the mainstream media went after Howard Dean when he got overenthusiastic, or how they went after Kerry, when he blew a joke, leaving out a key word or two.
