The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land has its fourth branch  the lying and misleading media (MSM, social, etc.). Such malady governs over a collective of helots, serfs and slaves criticizing any opposition with self proclaimed intelligent reporting, thus demonstrating a level of the quote's accuracy. There is little criticizing  of the theocracy and very little to no actual intelligent reporting (governing through socialism at the point of the gun).

E Archer, NYC

"Without propaganda and deliberate and false reporting, the government cannot rule the people."
