5. Ike seems to be the guy from the outside that was trusted and allowed in
and he reported back out on this (that quote) and the famous "military industrial complex" speech

Ike assumed here that there would always be a vibrant and effective journalism industry and an informed (not DISinformed) and highly involved public. We don't have that anymore.
