'the history of the big daily papers in the second half of the nineteenth century proves that the press itself became manipulable to the extent that it became commercialized. ever since the marketing of the editorial section become interdependent with that of the advertising section, the press (until then an institution of private people insofar as they constituted a public) became an institution of certain participants in their capacity as private individuals; that is, it became the gate through which privileged private interests invaded the public sphere.'

p 185.
