◆ I think I know what military fame is; to be killed on the field of battle and have your name misspelled in the newspapers.
- William T. Sherman99
◆ American journalism (like the journalism of any other country) is predominantly paltry and worthless. Its pretensions are enormous, but its achievements are insignificant.
- H.L. Mencken99
◆ We are beckoned to see the world through a one-way mirror, as if we are threatened and innocent and the rest of humanity is threatening, or wretched, or expendable. Our memory is struggling to rescue the truth that human rights were not handed down as privileges from a parliament, or a boardroom, or an institution, but that peace is only possible with justice and with information that gives us the power to act justly.
- John Pilger99
◆ It is not enough for journalists to see themselves as mere messengers without understanding the hidden agendas of the message and the myths that surround it.
- John Pilger99
◆ Magazines all too frequently lead to books and should be regarded by the prudent as the heavy petting of literature.
- Frances Ann Lebowitz99
◆ I had become too accustomed to the pseudo-Left new style, whereby if your opponent thought he had identified your lowest possible motive, he was quite certain that he had isolated the only real one. This vulgar method, which is now the norm and the standard in much non-Left journalism as well, is designed to have the effect of making any noisy moron into a master analyst.
- Christopher Hitchens99
◆ The ethics of plagiarism have turned into the narcissism of small differences: because journalism cannot own up to its heavily derivative nature, it must enforce originality on the level of the sentence.
- Malcolm Gladwell99
◆ This seems charmingly paradoxical: scientists seek one truth but often voice many opinions; journalists often speak of many truths while voicing a uniform view.
- Christopher Essex99
◆ The image of the journalist as wallflower at the orgy has been replaced by the journalist as the life of the party.
- Nora Ephron99
◆ One thing I learned as a journalist is that there is at least one disgruntled person in every workplace in America -- and at least double that number with a conscience. Hard as they try, they simply can't turn their heads away from an injustice when they see one taking place.
- Michael Moore99
◆ All things must be examined, debated, investigated without exception and without regard for anyone's feelings.
- Denis Diderot99
◆ But my way of writing is rather to think aloud, and follow my own humours, than much to consider who is listening to me; and, if I stop to consider what is proper to be said to this or that person, I shall soon come to doubt whether any part at all is proper.
- Thomas de Quincey99
◆ Journalism is literature in a hurry.
- Matthew Arnold99
◆ All you have to do [to win a Pulitzer Prize] is spend your life running from one awful place to another, write about every horrible thing you see. The civilized world reads about it, then forgets it, but pats you on the head for doing it and gives you a reward as appreciation for changing nothing.
- David Baldacci99
◆ The smarter the journalists are, the better off society is. [For] to a degree, people read the press to inform themselves-and the better the teacher, the better the student body.
- Warren Buffett99
