Today is World Press Freedom Day, and Secretary of State John Kerry recognized the event by releasing a statement “honoring all our truth tellers in a noble cause.”

“People everywhere count on a free press to keep us informed, hold leaders accountable, filter fact from fiction, and unmask false narratives masquerading as truth,” wrote Kerry, who was subpoenaed this week to testify before a select committee on Benghazi.

Mockery of Kerry arrived faster than a swift boat.
