The importance of America’s news media cannot be overemphasized in America even if most Americans don’t have a clue what it is like to live in a country without a free media….
Think about China which is now run by FASCISTS that torture, terrorize and try to control what their own people think and do in their lives
….and a member of the US news media Glenn Guilbeau of Gannett Louisiana is out with a column this morning that makes the Absolute Nonsense of LSU AD Joe Alleva and LSU head coach Les Miles about having to play Florida every year look Very Damn Stupid but then don’t tell that to Alleva and Miles which have spent two days on the beaches of Destin crying like babies to anyone that would listen:

Four weeks later, LSU was No. 1 in the nation and defeated No. 9 Florida 28-24 in the greatest game ever played in Tiger Stadium. That win also gave LSU serious clout in the human and computer polls for the rest of the season much like the win over Virginia Tech. This would be crucial later.
But if Miles was scheduling, that game might not have happened because Miles doesn’t want to play Florida either….”
