I am not really shocked.
Disappointed, deeply disappointed - yes!
Shocked - No.
Lately we have been reading about the smear campaign about Bain, which comes straight down to the masses from the capitol. So why would it surprise me that the MET leadership does the same!
Muzzle the Media IF the printed word displeases.
OPERA NEWS has printed a retraction and WILL continue to publish THE MET's reviews...undoubtedly due to the outcry and outrage about 'implied censorship' from Gelb on social media.
