"The newspaper you read is your friend. It has fought your battles and those of your forebears from the day it was born. You may not know one person employed by it. You may actively disagree with some of its editorial policies. You may abhor some of its writers. But it remains your friend. Why? Because it is engaged in a daily fight to know what's happening in the world in which you live. In its columns it brings you a daily report on the world, the nation, the state, the city, the immediate neighborhood in which you live."
Employee Relations, 1957
