"If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it is probably a duck."
Just thought I would bring an item to your attention in light of the treatment of the press at the White House today. Just saying...
THE PRESS IN THE THIRD REICH
ESTABLISHING CONTROL OF THE PRESS
"When Adolf Hitler took power in 1933, the Nazis controlled less than three percent of Germany’s 4,700 papers.
The elimination of the German multi-party political system not only brought about the demise of hundreds of newspapers produced by outlawed political parties; it also allowed the state to seize the printing plants and equipment of the Communist and Social Democratic Parties, which were often turned over directly to the Nazi Party. In the following months, the Nazis established control or exerted influence over independent press organs."
