"If some tension doesn't exist between the President and the press, it means one of two things; first, that the President isn't doing anything worthwhile; or second, that the press is kept. But anytime you have a vigerous, progressive, energetic president, and an active curious, concerned press, you will have tension."

"Bill Moyers, L.B.J.'s Man for the Press" LIFE Magazine, September 10, 1965, page 52

After reading this quote from the Brazilian cigar smoking Moyers, one can only imagine how as a former commentator for the government-funded PBS, Moyers sees the love affair between the media and the current holder of the Oval Office.
