There is no such thing as an independent press in America. I am paid for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the street looking for another job.”

“We are the tools and vassals of the rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks; they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.”

-John Swinton (1830-1901) Editor, New York Sun (Reply to the toast, “An Independent Press,” journalists’ gathering, Twilight Club, New York City, April 12, 1893)

    1. Tanya,
      To be honest in the past week I decided to simply look into the issue. With minimal effort people can find out for themselves the reality of hydraulic fracturing and other issues. With this and other issues where there are real consequences for people, only action taken by the people will make the difference between those consequences being negative or positive. You know my mantra on hydraulic fracturing: water is life.
      Thank you,
      Jerry
