TV veteran Norman Horowitz--his bio says that he started in the TV business in 1956, when he was 24, and rose to head up Polygram Television and MGM/UA Telecommunications, among other big gigs--writes a guest post for TV Week entitled, "A Raging Liberal Defends Fox News."
In his essay, Horowitz attacks David Brock's Media Matters for its relentless and systematic attempts at the "suppression of free speech." Horowitz makes clear that he doesn't agree with everything Fox does, but, in the spirt of Voltaire, he will do defend Fox's right to say it.
Here's the whole text:
Many take the position that if you do not approve of what someone’s press is publishing that it is acceptable to somehow destroy the offending press.
In the “pretend spirit” of free speech Media Matters for America (MMFA) wants to stifle the free press rights of Fox News. MMFA is not at all pleased with Fox News and has chosen to find a way to stop Fox News from publishing.
