„The battle for the airwaves cannot be limited to only those who have the bank accounts to pay for the battle and win it.“

—  Walter Cronkite American broadcast journalist 1916 - 2009

Free the Airwaves! (2002)
Kontext: The battle for the airwaves cannot be limited to only those who have the bank accounts to pay for the battle and win it. Democracy is in danger. Seats in Congress, seats in the state legislature, that big seat in the White House itself, can be purchased by those who have the greatest campaign resources, who have the largest bank accounts or own riches.
That, I submit to you, is no democracy. It is an oligarchy of the already powerful. It is no less than a conspiracy of the powerful to deny access to government to those who literally cannot afford to run for public office with any realistic hope of getting elected.
