I’m sorry but its not a joke and there is no punchline.
What the US has in common with these others not-so-peace loving countries? It requires all journalists from foreign countries to apply for journalist visas. Thats right, even journalists from the “coalition of the willing” and the countries that the US has a visa waiver agreement with has to apply for special visas to enter the US.
People, its not a good thing to be the only western country to apply restrictions we only see in freedom-oppressing countries. It might even make us outside of the US believe we should trust what we see and not what we hear…
