Palin and Plato.

Sarah Palin has reportedly said:

“The media’s definitely a major part of the problem, if there’s a problem with incivility in this nation, definitely, because so many in the media, the lamestream media picking up on what goes viral with lies and innuendo and rumors that are out there in the blogosphere and elsewhere, for the lamestream media to pick up some of these things and run with it without getting facts, that perpetuates the problem that we have with some negative discourse in this country, so definitely the media is a big part of the problem and I certainly would like to see a lot of that changed.”—on President Obama’s State of the Union address, to Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren, Jan. 26, 2011

I do believe Plato, in the Republic, was paraphrased here, wittingly or unwittingly, but definitely sans the wit.
