Liberty of the Press is called the Palladium of Freedom - Twain

"...the liberty of the Press is called the Palladium of Freedom, which means, in these days, the liberty of being deceived, swindled, and humbugged by the Press and paying hugely for the deception."
- Mark Twain "From Author's Sketch Book, Nov. 1870" Reprinted in The Twainian May 1940
