As an aside, some of the people who see the 24th Century Federation as a kind of stealth Orwellian regime point to the Federation News Service as evidence, but there's not much reason to believe it's state-run, or the "official" news of the Federation, any more than the USA Today or the American Broadcasting Company is. It's just a name.
Well, honestly, there are people who would find anything to tell you that 24th century Federation is a totalitarian communist dictatorship whose complacent population dare not speak their mind for fear of Starfleet reprisal...
