“It serves as the most vital of all general interests: the dissemination of news from as many different sources, and with as many different facets and colors as possible. That interest is closely akin to, if indeed it is not the same as, the interest protected by the First Amendment; it presupposes that right conclusions are more likely to be gathered out of a multitude of tongues, than through any kind of authoritative selection. To many this is, and always will be folly; but we have staked upon it our all.” ~ Judge Learned Hand, as quoted during The Failing Newspaper Act hearings of 1967 by Senator Philip A. Hart of Michigan.

“Tonight, the state of our City can be compared to a patient who has faced a life-threatening disease, who has survived painful treatments and a lengthy recovery, who is now cautiously optimistic that the disease is behind him, but fully aware that the changing circumstances, at any time, can lead to a relapse.” ~San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, State Of The City Address, 1-15-13.
