I don't, as it tends to destabilize the system. So what is this site
doing?

None, but some allow more than others.

No. But it doesn't have national press cards.

It doesn't matter. It has other ways of limiting free speech. No country
has truly free speech, as you yourself conceded in a post a few moments
ago. The US is no better at this than other countries, despite your odd
cupboardy perspective.

No more that a syndicate in the US, I'd say.

More important points of gov't interference with the press are, IMO:

1/ the fact that the biggest, right-wing, quality daily belongs to
Dassault, whose CEO is both a (harsh) right-winger MP and a toy
merchant,

2/ Same (partially) for le Monde, apart from the fact that Lagard¬Ěre is
not a MP,

3/ The Comission Paritaire (a system of tax break for the press),

4/ the problems with press distribution.

The CCIJP is a trifle in comparison, and by the way, it's not necessary
to hold a press card to write in any newspaper !
