"Whoever has made observation on the characters of nations will find it generally true that the manners of a nation, or of a party, can be better ascertained from the character of its press than from any other public circumstance."
--Thomas Paine (1737-1809), Founding Father, revolutionary writer & thinker, “Liberty of the Press,” 1806.
