ABSTRACT
The article presents information about the U.S. educator Robert M. Hutchins' views on the editors. Hutchins somewhat unfairly ignored the quandary of the editors. It is this: how can the editor of a big-city newspaper be at once politically liberal and financially honest? He is practically never the owner of the property he controls, but he is its custodian. The paper usually represents an investment of many millions of other people's money, and a conscientious agent is not going to take chances with other people's money, even in circumstances under which he might gamble his own. Hutchins is wrong in implying that tarrying by the Wailing Wall is the deliberate choice of the editors, many of whom are really blithe fellows.
