A newspaper is a device for making the ignorant more ignorant and the crazy crazier.

Turn to the press--its teeming sheets survey,

      - Charles Sprague

The free press is the mother of all our liberties and of our progress under liberty.
      - Adlai E. Stevenson

A newspaper, like a theatre, must mainly owe its continuance in life to the fact that it pleases many persons; and in order to please many persons it will unconsciously perhaps, respond to their several tastes, reflect their various qualities, and reproduce their views. In a certain sense it is evolved out of the community that absorbs it, and, therefore, partaking of the character of the community, while it may retain many merits and virtues, it will display itself, as in some respects ignorant, trivial, narrow, and vulgar.
      - William Winter
