e-mail From a Reader: " Thomas Jefferson Has a Tip for Peter King"

"The basis of our government being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter."

Thomas Jefferson
Letter to Colonel Edward Carrington (January 16, 1787)
