Written Without Apparent Irony in the Washington Times

Thomas Sowell:
Journalists cannot serve two masters. To the extent they take on the task of suppressing information or biting their tongue for the sake of some political agenda, they betray the trust of the public and corrupt their own profession. . . It is bad enough that politicians betray their followers as a matter of expediency. It is real chutzpah when they demand that journalists betray the public trust as a matter of principle, for the benefit of politicians.

Real chutzpah, indeed.
