But of course their doctrine states that the purpose of a suit is to harass, not to win, so from that perspective they hurt us all. They've had a real chilling effect on journalism, both before and after my piece.Richard Behar
Marxism is at the root of debunking journalism.
Absolute truth is a very rare and dangerous commodity in the context of professional journalism.
Modern journalism justifies its own existence by the great Darwinian principle of the survival of the vulgarest.
If it falls to me to start a fight to cut out the cancer of bent and twisted journalism in our country with the simple sword of truth and the trusty shield of British fair play, so be it.jonathan aitken
When he let Kennedy use his column to send signals to Nikita Khrushchev, or lent his skill to Vandenberg to reinforce the anti-Soviet consensus in American diplomacy, he wasn't acting as a reporter but as a patriot. This urge may be a dereliction of duty in the journalist, but it is a sign of decency in the man. That the two impulses in journalism should so often be at odds — duty versus decency — tells us more about the trade than most of us care to know.andrew ferguson
A composite is a euphemism for a lie. It's disorderly. It's dishonest and it's not journalism.fred w. friendly
In America journalism is apt to be regarded as an extension of history: in Britain, as an extension of conversation.anthony sampson
I discovered that I had, in the past two decades, written a far greater amount in the essay form than I remembered. Certainly I have written enough of it to demonstrate that I harbor no disdain for literary journalism or just plain journalism, under whose sponsorship I have been able to express much that has fascinated me, or alarmed me, or amused me, or otherwise engaged my attention when I was not writing a book.william styron
The TV business is uglier than most things. It is normally perceived as some kind of cruel and shallow money trench through the heart of the journalism industry, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free and good men die like dogs, for no good reason.hunter s. thompson
That’s arguably what spy agencies do high-tech investigative journalism. It’s time that the media upgraded its capabilities along those lines.julian assange
I don't like the definition 'war correspondent'. It is history, not journalism, that has condemned the Middle East to war. I think 'war correspondent' smells a bit, reeks of false romanticism: it has too much of the whiff of Victorian reporters who would view battles from hilltops in the company of ladies, immune to suffering, only occasionally glancing towards the distant pop-pop of cannon fire.robert fisk
We have lost the good old British spirit. Instead we have American journalism and black-shirted buffoons making a cheap imitation of ice-cream sellers.oswald mosley
I still believe that if your aim is to change the world, journalism is a more immediate short-term weapon.tom stoppard
Drill in exact translation is an excellent way of disposing the mind against that looseness and exaggeration with which the sensationalists have corrupted our world. If schools of journalism knew their business, they would graduate no one who could not render the Greek poets.richard weaver
A primary function of The Intercept is to insist upon and defend our press freedoms from those who wish to infringe them. We are determined to move forward with what we believe is essential reporting in the public interest and with a commitment to the ideal that a truly free and independent press is a vital component of any healthy democratic society. [...] We believe the prime value of journalism is that it imposes transparency, and thus accountability, on those who wield the greatest governmental and corporate power.
A free press is one where it's okay to state the conclusion you're led to by the evidence . One reason I'm in hot water is because my colleagues and I at NOW didn't play by the conventional rules of Beltway journalism . Those rules divide the world into Democrats & Republicans , liberals & conservatives , and allow journalists to pretend they have done their job if instead of reporting the truth behind the news , they merely give each side an opportunity to spin the news.
journalism largely consists in saying 'Lord Jones Dead'to people who never knew Lord Jones was alive.
I see journalists as the manual workers, the laborers of the word. journalism can only be literature when it is passionate.marguerite duras
journalism is popular, but it is popular mainly as fiction. Life is one world, and life seen in the newspapers another.
The duty of journalists is to tell the truth. journalism means you go back to the actual facts, you look at the documents, you discover what the record is, and you report it that way.
journalism (definition): The art, or science, of representing life as a series of clichés.
