Today's Word—The Public Trust

The Public Trust:

“Newspapers, when well run, are a public trust. They provide, at their best, the means for citizens to examine themselves, to ferret out lies and the abuse of power by elected officials and corrupt businesses, to give a voice to those who would, without the press, have no voice.”

—Chris Hedges, columnist, pundit and author, 2008 (See column here.)
