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

The present crisis of Western democracy is a crisis in journalism.walter lippmann
There can be no higher law in journalism than to tell the truth and shame the devil. See Shakespeare 742:17.walter lippmann
In America journalism is apt to be regarded as an extension of history: in Britain, as an extension of conversation.
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
It is one of the paradoxes of journalism: The more servile a reporter is toward his sources, the more authoritative he can appear in print.andrew ferguson
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
Sacrificing good men to journalism is like sending William Faulkner to work for Time magazine.hunter s. thompson

You can’t publish a paper on physics without the full experimental data and results; that should be the standard in journalism".julian assange
It is the media that controls the boundaries of what is politically permissible, so better to change the media. Profit motives work against it, but if we can have the audience understand that most other forms of journalism are not credible, then it may be a forced move.julian assange
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
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
Bennett seems to be showing alarming signs of irony. I have always found that irony among the lower orders is the first sign of an awakening social consciousness. It remains to be seen whether it will grow into an armed seizure of the means of production, distribution and exchange, or spend itself in liberal journalism.tom stoppard
Great is journalism. Is not every able editor a ruler of the world, being the persuader of it?thomas carlyle

journalism was being whittled away by a Wall Street theory that profits can be maximized by minimizing the product.
journalism may not dare too much. It can be gently humorous and ironic, very lightly touched by idiosyncrasy, but it must not repel readers by digging too deeply. This is especially true of its approach to language: the conventions are not questioned.
