The search warrant, signed by Marion County District Court Magistrate Judge Laura Viar, appears to violate federal law that provides protections against searching and seizing materials from journalists. The law requires law enforcement to subpoena materials instead. Viar didn’t respond to a request to comment for this story or explain why she would authorize a potentially illegal raid.

Emily Bradbury, executive director of the Kansas Press Association, said the police raid is unprecedented in Kansas.

“An attack on a newspaper office through an illegal search is not just an infringement on the rights of journalists but an assault on the very foundation of democracy and the public’s right to know,” Bradbury said. “This cannot be allowed to stand.”

A sample of the Police State that awaits in the wings.

Freedom of Speech and a Free Press are targets of ALL Governments and their Agencies all the time.

This is just a small scale version of what the FBI and the US Government as a whole were doing across the board wrt the new purveyors of news in the US ... the Social Media Empires of Google, Twitter, Microsoft, the TV networks, and the few remaining large newspapers in the US such as NY Times, Washington Post etc. in trying to both HIDE REAL NEWS, PUSH LIES, and PROHIBIT OTHERS FROM VOICING TRUE FACTS.

Even small town newspapers are hiding facts that go against the DS and promoting the trans agenda. They all need to die out as they no longer serve the public.
