"As we send our young men and women overseas in a war zone to fight for democracy and freedoms, including freedom of the press, we've really got to have a mutually beneficial relationship here with those fighting the freedom of the press, and then the press, though not taking advantage and exploiting a situation, perhaps they would want to capture and abuse the privilege. We just want truth, we want fairness, we want balance."



got to have a mutually beneficial relationship here with those fighting the freedom of the press



and then the press, though not taking advantage and exploiting a situation, perhaps they would want to capture and abuse the privilege.

It would be nice if she spoke coherent English. But it sounds like 'war is freedom, and freedom is a privilege'.

And then:


We just want truth, we want fairness, we want balance.

= we want state approved propaganda
