The Fifth Quote from Jill Lepore's 'The Lie Factory: How politics became a business'
“'Government by Whitaker and Baxter' appeared in The Nation in three parts, in April and May of 1951. ...[The author], as Whitaker and Baxter must have very well understood, had played by different rules from theirs. He hadnít been simple. He hadnít attacked them. He had taken time to explain. He hadnít invented an enemy. He hadnít taken remarks out of context. He hadnít made anything up. He hadnít lied.”
