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
Literature istheart of writing something that will be read twice; journalism what will be read once.
The present crisis of Western democracy is a crisis in journalism.walter lippmann
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
Suffering from an evident complex of moral inferiority, a lot of journalists are interested in teaching the Pope how to do the Pope. Suffering from an evident complex of moral superiority, a lot of priests are interested in teaching journalists how to do journalism. But the worst of all are the journalist-priests.leon bertoletti
I just think it’s the world we live in and there is no real metric to measure us by because CNN is the only one that is still doing journalism.
Evidently there are plenty of people in journalism who have neither got what they liked nor quite grown to like what they get. They write pieces they do not much enjoy writing, for papers they totally despise, and the sad process ends by ruining their style and disintegrating their personality, two developments which in a writer cannot be separated, since his personality and style must progress or deteriorate together, like a married couple in a country where death is the only permissible divorce.claud cockburn
Literature is the art of writing something that will be read twice; journalism what will be grasped at once, and they require separate techniques.cyril connolly
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
Sacrificing good men to journalism is like sending William Faulkner to work for Time magazine.hunter s. thompson
Rock journalism is people who can't write, interviewing people who can't talk, in order to provide articles for people who can't read.frank zappa
I think the Internet is to MSM what TV was to yellow journalism.larisa alexandrova
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
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.bill moyers
A news sense is really a sense of what is important, what is vital, what has color and life what people are interested in. That's journalism.burton rascoe
Art too is just a way of living, and however one lives, one can, without knowing, prepare for it; in everything real one is closer to it, more its neighbor, than in the unreal half-artistic professions, which, while they pretend to be close to art, in practice deny and attack the existence of all art - as, for example, all of journalism does and almost all criticism and three quarters of what is called (and wants to be called) literature.Rainer Maria Rilke
What a monstrous thing that a University should teach journalism! I thought that was only done at Oxford. This respect for the filthy multitude is ruining civilisation.bertrand russell

Most rock journalism is people who can't write, interviewing people who can't talk, for people who can't read.
Great is journalism. Is not every able editor a ruler of the world, being the persuader of it?thomas carlyle
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 a good place for any writer to start — the retailing of fact is always a useful trade and can it help you learn to appreciate the declarative sentence. A young writer is easily tempted by the allusive and ethereal and ironic and reflective, but the declarative is at the bottom of most good writing.garrison keillor
journalism largely consists in saying 'Lord Jones Dead' to people who never knew Lord Jones was alive.gilbert keith chesterton
journalism attracts people with exceptional linguistic talent, but I have found that very few have the mathematical sophistication to appreciate the difference between skill and luck.
journalism has become a great god of the period, and gods have a way of ruthlessly and demonically taking over there servitors.
