Murdoch’s lying apology

Our business was founded on the idea that a free and open press should be a positive force in society. We need to live up to this. Rupert Murdoch

A newspaper is a device for making ignorant people more ignorant. H.L. Mencken

free press – corporate media. A formerly important institution that now disseminates corporate, political, and ideological propaganda packaged as entertainment. Poor William’s Almanack

There are laws to protect the freedom of the press’s speech, but none that are worth anything to protect the people from the press. Mark Twain
