"I’m not a reporter, I’m a writer. I don’t defend what I do in the context of straight journalism, and if some people regard me as a reporter who’s gone bad rather than a writer who’s just doing his job — well, they’re probably the same dingbats who think John Chancellor’s an acid freak and Cronkite is a white slaver."

"There’s a feeling in the country that people are under attack. I think they’re misidentifying the source of the attack, but they feel under attack. Decades of intensive business propaganda have been designed to make them see government as the enemy, the government being the only power structure in the system that is even partially accountable to the population, so naturally you want to make that be the enemy— not the corporate system, which is totally unaccountable. After decades of propaganda, people feel that the government is some kind of enemy and they have to defend themselves from it. Many of those who advocate keeping guns have that in the back of their minds. I wouldn’t believe it if I hadn’t heard it so many times. That’s a crazy response to a real problem."
