tion on Agnewv's part in alluditng
to the limnited nature of the li-
censes granted by tile FCC.
'I'HEIZU IS a three-way battle
goitlg> on here, but the crucial
point of contention is the ques-
tion of dissent, how much is to
be tolerated or fostei'ed and by
wxhom.
While Johnson is iintime best po-
sitiotn --- encouraginig debate and
dissent fr'om all sides - Isaac's
xvould limit it to debate between
the powerful, a war' of gargantuan
pro'por'tionis between two mighty
advei'saries - time governiment and
tihe liberal-dominated media.
Agnew would have none of
either, for hie appears to seek the
qutieting ci' dis'sent from those who
would have at himself and the
administration of wvhic'h he is a
im o s t vocal memnber. Luckily,
though, he has little power to ac-
tually do what he seeks,
AGNEW IS, in fact following a
great tradition. He is the last in
the. line of pi'esidemts, literally
siiice George, Washington and
Thomas Jeffers on, who have been
irritated, hai'assed, annoyed and
infuriated by thIie public press.
That line goes from the founiding
fathet's to Woodrowv Wilson,
Franklin Roosevelt, John F. Ken-
niedy anid Lyndon Johnsoni.
An~d this tradition, though not
so hontorable, is really not an ig-
tioable one either. It is simply
human.
Agtiew,. f01 all his buffoonery,
is a dangerous manx. While it is
understandable that he may seek
tosiec his critics, it is also
unacceptable that he may ever' be
close to doing so.
We can afford to let him fight.
His foes - the Newv York Times,
the Washington Post, the nation-
al tv nletw~orks --- are all stronger
than lhe.
