Tuesday's Question of the Day asked … This venerated reporter once made this smart observation: “I don't think a tough question is disrespectful.” Who was it? That would be Helen Thomas, the respected news service reporter and member of the White House press corps who passed away earlier this year.

Your question of the day for today is ... Someone once said, “News is what someone wants suppressed. Everything else is advertising. The power is to set the agenda. What we print and what we don’t print matter a lot.” Who was it?
