Ben Stein Expelled From the New York Times
Ben Stein has noticed that criticism is not without risks.
For five or six years, Ben Stein wrote a popular bi-monthly column for the New York Times. However, atheists were offended with his 2008 documentary Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. They also expressed their dislike of his views in the Times.
It seems that there is no room for the Designer in the liberal media.
Then Ben Stein criticised another icon of the left leaning media: Barack Obama or more specifically, his economic policy. Times promptly informed Ben Stein that the paper will no longer publish his column.
In other words, press freedom does not seem to fare well in the USA.
