Soros Funded Group Advocates For Government Run Press

These people actually think the media would do a better job of investigative reporting if the press were government run.  Click on the title to read the article.  They also seem to think that free speech would be better protected under a government run system because false statements, lies, etc would be filtered out and only the "truth" would be made known to the public. 

Does anyone else besides me see the danger such thinking presents for free speech?  Who out there really believes a government run media would be more protective of free speech?  What is happening to our country that anyone could embrace this as a good idea? Ask the Russians, or the Venezuelans, or the Iranians how well government run media is working for them.
