CHARLIE MITCHELL: Rep. Gipson’s quest for truth reflects misunderstanding

State Rep. Andy Gipson, R-Braxton, has his toga in a knot because a Delta newspaper publisher offered his opinion – opinion – that Gipson, who chairs House Judiciary B, went too far in mixing religion and public policy...

...Gipson conceded a couple of journalists are OK, but the rest are reckless purveyors of lies and misinformation....

...There are lots of quotes from Thomas Jefferson about the media. Look them up. They show that as a person, he, like Gipson, believed reporters were malingerers and/or incompetents. But as a founder he believed this: You either have a free press, with all its foibles, or you don’t have a democracy.
