Moral & Intellectual Confusion Reign at the Top, Not In the Critics of the Administration

Edward R. Murrow Revisited
“We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty” (Murrow) said in 1954, “We must remember always that accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law. We will not walk in fear one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men, not from men who fear to write, to speak, to associate and to defend causes that were, for the moment, unpopular. And so, goodnight and good luck.”
