What Would Thomas Jefferson Think?

Newseum in Washington, DC

The Newseum in Washington, DC, has posted an article entitled “Newspapers in peril: What would Jefferson think? ”  Although he would deplore the recent decline of the print news media:

“Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.” -Thomas Jefferson, 1787

Probably he would be out here blogging with the rest of the world!
