As should every American. Here it is not treasonous, unpatriotic or anti loyal to question and doubt the actions of our government. It is, in fact, our sacred duty. We should be able to count the media and the press to be on the side of the people in that skepticism and tension with our leaders.

Does anyone else feel that way today?

And that's why I said "sad".
Much of the press is becoming to political, instead of holding the politicians feet to the fire, many support the politicians that they agree with and persecute the the ones they oppose.
These days, most of the press has abandoned honest reporting in favor of pursuing their political agenda.
