I have often wondered where the phrase "speak truth to power" originated. I had thought of writing in to Harvard Magazine, which has a column for people to request assistance in such matters.

But after an Internet search my tentative conclusion is that it was coined by Aaron Wildavsky. The dastardly Internet does away with the need for old media once again.
