Why Presidents Hate the Press…

It’s a well-known fact that those in authority at best have a mere toleration for freedom of the press. That goes for crooked CEOs, university administrators, and ego-maniacal heads-of-state. (Wait, is there really much of a difference?)

The President of Rwanda got into a Twitter tussle (a twussle?) today with a journalist putting the heat on him about press freedom in the country and the right of the Rwandan people to criticize their President. Aside from having horrible grammar and punctuation, the President of the tiny African nation with a loaded history is one of the worst equivocators I’ve ever seen.
