Quote of the day- Joseph Pulitzer

“We are a democracy and there is only one way to get a democracy on its feet in the matter of its individual, its social, its municipal, its state, its national conduct and that is by keeping the public informed about what is going on. There is not a crime, there is not a dodge, there is not a trick, there is not a swindle, there is not a vice, which does not live in secrecy. Get these things out in the open, describe them, attack them, ridicule them in the press, and sooner or later public opinion will sweep them away.”— Joseph Pulitzer (1847-1911) quoted in Alleyne Ireland, Joseph Pulitzer: Reminiscences of a Secretary (1920)
