"The media want to maintain their intimate relation to state power.
They want to get leaks; they want to get invited to the press conferences. They want to rub shoulders with the Secretary of State, all that kind of business. To do that, you've got to play the game, and playing the game means telling their lies, serving as their disinformation apparatus."

Noam Chomsky
