“We are experiencing a period of unprecedented targeting of the Fourth Estate, political activists, politicians and agents of truth by those who seek to silence lawful and peaceful speech.  Those who deliver bombs seeking to silence through death, or threat of death, are the true cowards and enemies of the people.  The Fourth Estate will not be intimidated and remains vigilant in the very face of these cowardly acts.”
