Freedom of the press

“Freedom of the press, if it means anything at all, 
means the freedom to criticize and oppose.” 
~George Orwell

As a professional journalist and proud member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, I’m more than a little offended by the ongoing, vicious assault on the American press. I’m deeply worried. I can’t think of anything more UN-American than a press that’s controlled by the leader of its country. There are several powerful columns and editorials on this topic today in newspapers across the nation, including our own Detroit Free Press.  And here’s another good one that speaks to my heart and mind in today’s Boston Globe. ~Cindy La Ferle

Throughout my career, I've worked as a book production editor, travel magazine editor, features writer, and weekly newspaper columnist. My award-winning lifestyles features and essays have appeared in many national magazines and anthologies, including Newsweek, Reader's Digest, The Christian Science Monitor, Writer's Digest, Victoria, Better Homes & Gardens, Bella Grace, and more. My weekly Sunday "Life Lines" column ran for 14 years in The Daily Tribune (Royal Oak, MI) and won a First Place (Local Columns) award from the Michigan Press Association. My essay collection, Writing Home, includes 93 previously published columns and essays focusing on parenthood and family life.
