I wonder...what if some high political candidate, such as that John fellow
that Spike keeps pushing, were to adopt as a platform plank, "I can not
trust the government I would rule any more than you have been able to trust
them. So for my own operations' sake, I would establish greater freedoms
for the press, and trust them to keep my cronies honest because keeping
them in line is a much bigger job than I could do by myself."
Aside from its effects if implemented (assuming the guy won), how much free
press would such a candidate get from journalists looking out for their own
Spike, do you think you could get John to start promoting this?
