"I am far from denying that newspapers in democratic countries
lead citizens to do very ill-considered things in common;
but without newspapers there would be hardly any common action at all.
So they mend many more ills than they cause."
Alexis de Tocqueville
[Alexis Charles Henri Maurice Clerel, le Comte de Tocqueville] (1805-1859) French historian
