Advice of the Day

When a conference delegate asked whether Christians should buy control of newspapers that are for sale, longtime conservative activist Paul Weyrich said there was no need.

"Newspapers are a dying industry," he said. "There won't be any newspapers 20 years from now. Buy television."

—Wayne Slater writing in "Conservative Christians losing faith in GOP"

Now try substituting the name of any other group of religious adherents—Muslims, say—into this quote, which contemplates a takeover of the media, and imagine the reaction. Or try substituting some political or economic persuasion other than "conservative" capitalism—democratic socialism, say—and see how that fits.
