Reading the Newspaper with George W.S. Trow - I
“There isn't much real news, you know.
”Most news is in relation to what a government (or a unit of government) is willing to let you know about what it is saying or doing in relation to another government or unit of government. You could spend your whole life reading abou the Middle East. You don't want to do that.“
-- George W.S. Trow, ”My Pilgrim's Progress: Media Studies 1950-1998," pg. 42
