“Sowing the seeds of destruction”

“If we persist in the practice of Republicans reading only Republican newspapers, listening only to Republican speeches on the radio, attending only Republican political rallies, and mixing socially only with those of congenial views, and if Democrats … follow suit, we are sowing the seeds of the destruction of our democracy.”

While this sounds like something fit for the political environment of 2012, it was actually said more than six decades ago by George Denny, an ABC moderator of the radio news program “Town Meeting.”
