Journalist Walter Lippmann. "Other countries might have produced such a journalist, but only in the U.S. could he exist today. In Germany or Italy he would be in prison or silent; in Russia, dead; in France, a partisan among partisans; in England, anonymous; in Japan, inconceivable. Only in a land where the banner of a free press still prouldy flaps could such a journalistic phenomenon as Walter Lippmann rise and continue to shine" (45).
