If it please the court: we only wished to show that the fact that a
phenomenon is cyclical does not imply that it is always safe to wait
for a particular extreme manifestation to go away of its own accord.
An analogy could be made between swing of more/less regulation and
the swing between rightest/leftist governments. In either case, extreme
swings can be deleterious. However, I the court wishes, I will withdraw
We do contend that the evidence about "yellow journalism", Standard Oil
monopoly, etc. was introduced in a context that clearly indicated
these were thought to be bad things. The term "yellow journalism" is
itself prejudicial. Therefore, a reasonable person could conclude
from the witness's statement that these things are "cyclical" that he
implied that nothing need be done about them.
I do not know if this was in fact Mr. Obbard's intention, but I wished to
express disagreement with this possible interpretation of his writing.
