Press Freedom in America is getting better, but it's still not as good as that in, er, Bosnia! and, er, Latvia! And Trinidad and Tobago. Can this really be true? Requiring a special press visa for reporters is apparently one of the things to hurt the U.S., and rightly so, it's a vile Kin-Jong-Il-endorsed regulation. But getting accidentally arrested because you happen to be standing in the midst of some unruly protesters seems to be bad luck, and not specifically a press freedom problem.
