The news of the day as it reaches the newspaper office is an incredible medley of fact, propaganda, rumor, suspicion, clues, hopes, and fears, and the task of selecting and ordering that news is one of the truly sacred and priestly offices in a democracy. For the newspaper is in all literalness the bible of democracy, the book out of which a people determines its conduct.
Liberty and the News, "What Modern Liberty Means" (1920)
Where village statesmen talk'd with looks profound, and news much older than their ale went round.Oliver Goldsmith
It is good news, worthy of all acceptation, and yet not too good to be true.matthew henry
News, news, news, my gossiping friends, I have wonderful news to tell. A lady by me her compliments sends, and this is the news from Hell!
As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.
