Pattern of Bush Administration to Supress Freedom of Speech

I've posted many times that I believe this administration wants to control what the public knows in ways that suppress freedom of speech and freedom of the press.

The payoffs that went to reporters to write favorable stories about Bush's no child left behind program, the suppression of documents pertaining to any saudi involvement in 9-11 when the 911 commission asked for documents from the white house, the refusal to help with any investigation into hurricane katrin's slow response, and other instances establish a pattern of behavior that I find troubling.

Now this article describes yet another instance where pressure is being applied to silence scientists who speak about global warming. Regardless of whether you believe global warming is or is not a problem, suppression of free speech is a problem.
