Transcript Be with the truth or historical reality; it only consists of continuing the reassurance of popular media-created myths. pi 'The media excludes HI reality by excluding the unexpected, the unpalatable and the surprising. And thus, it l M annuls history, espe FT ^| cially in foreign news coverage." f / y\ — Alexander t ■ ^^> Cockburn Jr ^jp Wall Street wm ^^^J Columnist MARCH 7, 1988 Democratic presidential hopeful Jesse Jackson urged UH students to emulate slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King by battling drug abuse and vowed to economically rejuvenate the South. The appearance was one of Jackson's last campaign stops on his sweep through the South on the eve of Super Tuesday primaries. Jackson reminded his supporters of the battle for racial equality in the 1960s and asked for similar dedication from today's youth in combating social problems like drug abuse, drug-related violence and teenage preg- Drugs. AIDS. Every civil right we've ever achieved is threatened by drugs. The number one threat to our national security is drugs. It's the most inept dimension of our foreign policy, and the most corrupt dimension of our foreign policy. — Jesse Jackson Democratic presidential hopeful nancy. Jackson blasted the Reagan administration's promise to curb drug trafficking while slashing the budget of the U.S. Coast Guard. He advised minorities not to use their color as a "crutch."

Bennett said when he was teaching at the university level, he and his students were particularly interested in the founding fathers' views of the need for virtue in government. They often worried about and asked themselves if one could be in high-level politics and still be honest, he said. Bennett conceded that there is a fair amount of depravity, a fair amount of self-interest, a fair amount of conspiracy against the public good, and, also, some fair amount of virtue and character and reliability. Character in government is a legitimate worry and the virtue he has seen in some people has not at all limited their effectiveness, which is a good sign, he said. Bennett said he was advised in his first days in Washington to keep his integrity intact by rejecting attempts of special interests to get insider favors from him. Otherwise, those wanting favors would haunt him during his entire career, he was told. "If you dance with them once, you'll be asked to dance again." 21
