“We live in a dirty and dangerous world. There are some things the general public does not need to know and shouldn't. I think democracy flourishes when the government can take legitimate steps to keep its secrets and when the press can decide whether to print what it knows.”
Katharine Graham (1988)  - [1]

Katharine Graham led her family's newspaper, The Washington Post, for more than two decades, overseeing its most famous period, the coverage of the Watergate coup that removed Richard Nixon from power.

Family connections

In 1940, Katharine Graham married Philip Graham, half brother of deep state functionary Bob Graham. Her husband became publisher of the Washington Post in 1946 when Eugene Meyer gave control of it to his son-in-law.
