    "to the media I say: you do your job and let the government do its job." (US CITIZEN) Please enlight me: Is it possible that sometimes the Government is failing to do his job [to keep the people safe, in particular - and, in general, to ensure the survival of the country] and is it then right for the media to make their views known to the public? Or should we presume - just because they have been democratically elected - that all elected governments always do the right thing? "A phenomenon noticeable throughout history, regardless of place or period, is the pursuit by governments of policies contrary to their own interests." Barbara W. Tuchman, in "The March of Folly - From Troy to Vietnam". "She twice won the Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction, first for 'The Guns of August' and again for 'Stilwell and the American Experience in China'. In 1980 the National Endowment for the Humanities selected Tuchman for the Jefferson Lecture, the U.S. federal government's highest honor for achievement in the humanities."
