    The Examiner needs to fire their ad agency...for missing the obvious money slogan: The Examiner is a free paper, so the ads clearly should read: "Freedom isn't free...but The Examiner is!"

    Ummmm... have they not seen Team America? Freedom isn't free. Freedom costs a buck oh five.

    My favorite one is the one that has a little arab girl being towered over by American soldiers, cropped off at the knee. The Examiner thinks "our brave soldiers are protecting her FREEDOMZ!!!!!" but to me she looks terrified.
