"The notion that the church, the press, and the universities
should serve the state is essentially a Communist notion.
In a free society these institutions must be wholly free -- which is
to say that their function is to serve as checks upon the state."

Alan Barth
(1906-1979) served on the editorial board of The Washington Post for thirty years
The Loyalty of Free Men, 1951
