Today's Word—Public Interest

Fear Minus Fact

“The emotion which brought us the Iraq War, exploited by George Bush, was fear. Let political decision be ruled by fear minus fact, and you can say goodbye to the role of journalism in a democracy.”

—The Rev. Donald W. Shriver, author and president emeritus,
Union Theological Seminary, New York, 2008
