A quote by David Brinkley on freedom of the press is the topic of this blog post.
“Numerous politicians have seized absolute power and muzzled the press. Never in history has the press seized absolute power and muzzled the politicians.” David Brinkley
“This quote by David Brinkley just shows why a free and independent press is essential to the health of any free society. The lack of a free and independent press is one of the major differences between a free society and a society that is not free. David Brinkley is right on the money with this quote. I may not agree with him on everything but I absolutely agree with him on this quote. Without a free and independent press no society can expect to remain free for very long. History provides no examples of any society remaining free where there is no freedom of the press as without freedom of the press it is difficult if not impossible to speak out against tyranny and oppression.” Stan Burman
