Quote of the Day (Walter Lippmann, on ‘Victims of Agitation and Propaganda’)

“Men who have lost their grip upon the relevant facts of their environment are the inevitable victims of agitation and propaganda. The quack, the charlatan, the jingo…can flourish only where the audience is deprived of independent access to information.”—Pulitzer Prize-winning American reporter and political commentator Walter Lippmann (1889-1974), Liberty and the News (1920)
