Fast forward 162 years to Oct. 15, 1958. In a speech to broadcast journalists, Edward R. Murrow said, "The fact that your voice, amplified to the degree to where it reaches from one end of the country to the other, does not confer upon you greater wisdom than when your voice reached only from one end of the bar to the other."
