Strange? It's called an "understatement". I suppose it may be a rather
English way to put it.

Anyway, I did a little research. Accord to the most recent (2006)
Press Freedom index by the Reporters Without Borders
(http://www.rsf.org/rubrique.php3?id_rubrique=639), the US is 53rd.
It's one of the worst developed nations for press freedom.
