Famous quotes containing the words conducted and/or bernstein:

    A private should preserve a respectful attitude toward his superiors, and should seldom or never proceed so far as to offer suggestions to his general in the field.

By the etiquette of war, it is permitted to none below the rank of newspaper correspondent to dictate to the general in the field.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

The pressure to compete, the fear somebody else will make the splash first, creates a frenzied environment in which a blizzard of information is presented and serious questions may not be raised.
    —Carl Bernstein (b. 1944)
