I hate journalists. There is nothing in them but tittering jeering emptiness. They have all made what Dante calls the Great Refusal. . . . The shallowest people on the ridge of the earth.
The press, like fire, is an excellent servant, but a terrible master.
Journalists should denounce government by public opinion
In journalism, there has always been a tension between getting it first and getting it right.
We journalists… are also extremely impressed with scientists, and we will, frankly, print just about any wacky thing they tell us, especially if it involves outer space.
Journalism could be described as turning one’s enemies into money.
Journalists do not like to report on uncertainties. They would almost rather be wrong than ambiguous.
Reporters are faced with the daily choice of painstakingly researching stories or writing whatever people tell them. Both approaches pay the same.
Journalists are like dogs, whenever anything moves they begin to bark.
In the real world, nothing happens at the right place at the right time. It is the job of journalists and historians to correct that.
