Kathleen Graham, publisher of The Washington Post said this in 1988

“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 secrets and when the press can decide whether to print what it knows.”

    This is an interesting quote, which can interpreted in a myriad of ways. Depends upon your point of view, ideology, and philosophy. Tricky stuff.
