Katherine Graham
Publisher of the Washington Post.

“We live in a dirty and dangerous world. There are some things the general public does not need to know and shouldn’t. I believe democracy flourishes when the government can take legitimate steps to keep its secret, and when the press can decide whether to print what it knows.”
