"... Free, responsible newspapers are so vital to a democracy that it would be a
comfort to imagine them run by people of consummate finesse and taste. Yet the truth
is that a newspaper needs aggression, iconoclasm and, above all, a powerful mean
streak to be effective in calling government to account."
