Winning One For The Quipper

Freeman, Neal B.
May 1981
National Review;5/15/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 9, p536
The article addresses the state of journalism and spending cuts in the U.S. as of May 1981. If someone wishes to maintain monopoly profits in media businesses, one can hold the banner of the people's right to know. If one wants to give the productive class a tax break, one is situated to witness the birth a new social science called supply-side economics. Journalism has become a garden of rhetorical conceits. Meanwhile, momentum is lost in the battle for spending cuts as three conservatives change their position. On the House side, a Democrat produces an alternative budget. With regards to foreign policy, there is more trouble. Chester Crocker, the man for African Affairs, is too liberal while Jim Malone, the man for Law of the Seas, is too conservative.
