Press freedom and the global economy

Hate to get all radical (if not rad) on you, but I heard this story on NPR about jailed Vietnamese journalists on the drive home, and despite my near overwhelming disappointment and rage at newspapers these days, this story out of Vietnam underscores the importance of press freedom in this world of ours, no matter if the product if on the Internet or (gasp!) in printed form. I hope those pushing for the larger global economy keep these basic freedoms and all human rights into consideration when considering trading with these countries.
