Freedom of the Press

As A. J. Liebling put it:

Freedom of the press is limited to those who own one.

I wonder how he’d modernize that quote today, where almost anyone can say anything and reach almost everyone with the internet. And for almost nothing.
As a journalist he might say:

Freedom of the press is unlimited on the Internet. But some authors should have the good taste to limit themselves.

As you probably know, I don’t feel that way!
