Journalism quotes by W.A. Swanberg
#1. This was the sort of challenge that delighted Hearst, who, according to one who knew him well, regarded journalism as 'an enchanted playground in which giants and dragons were to be slain simply for the fun of the thing. #Quote by W.A. Swanberg
Journalism quotes by Robert Krulwich
#2. Journalism doesn't have to be your first love ... or your only love. You can come to it in desperation, because you can't think of anything better to do with your life, that it's this or the abyss. But once you get going ... it helps if you love it. #Quote by Robert Krulwich
Journalism quotes by Steve Capus
#3. Journalism is, indeed, a noble calling, and I have much I hope to accomplish in the next phase of my career. #Quote by Steve Capus
Journalism quotes by Jenna Bush
#4. I was sports editor for my high school newspaper, but I think I shied away from journalism. #Quote by Jenna Bush
Journalism quotes by Edward Said
#5. The particular threat to
the intellectual today, whether in the West or the nonWestern
world, is not the academy, nor the suburbs, nor the appalling commercialism of journalism and publishing
houses, but rather an attitude that I will call professionalism.
By professionalism I mean thinking of your work
as an intellectual as something you do for a living, between
the hours of nine and five with one eye on the clock, and
another cocked at what is considered to be proper, professional
behavior-not rocking the boat, not straying outside
the accepted paradigms or limits, making yourself marketable
and above all presentable, hence uncontroversial
and unpolitical and "objective. #Quote by Edward Said
Journalism quotes by Mark Leibovich
#6. I have always been a big meta guy because I think the way journalism is practiced in Washington, and the way everyone sort of cohabitates in the same fishbowl is ultimately a bigger part of the story than people outside of the fishbowl really know. #Quote by Mark Leibovich
Journalism quotes by Jim Rohn
#7. The reason why I spend so much money for my journals is to press me to find something valuable to put in them. #Quote by Jim Rohn
Journalism quotes by Julianna Baggott
#8. The lessons learned in journalism also apply. Writing for NPR has taught me to cut a piece in half and then in half again - without losing the essence. Apply that to the swollen prose of a bulky novel and you might reveal a beautiful work. #Quote by Julianna Baggott
Journalism quotes by Stephen Kinzer
#9. The fundamentals of what journalism is about don't necessarily change. What will change is the delivery of news. #Quote by Stephen Kinzer
Journalism quotes by Bill Moyers
#10. Journalists who make mistakes get sued for libel; historians who make mistakes get to publish a revised edition. #Quote by Bill Moyers
Journalism quotes by Stig Dagerman

Journalism quotes by Chris Rock
#12. After I left high school and got my GED, I studied broadcast journalism for a year at a community college. #Quote by Chris Rock
Journalism quotes by Lily Allen
#13. I don't really like the way that journalism works in the UK anyway; it's all about getting the most shocking thing out of somebody and kind of twisting people's words, which isn't really journalism, as far as I'm concerned. #Quote by Lily Allen
Journalism quotes by Aaron McGruder
#14. I want the news delivered unbiased. I thought that was the whole point with journalism. #Quote by Aaron McGruder
Journalism quotes by Bill Kovach
#15. If we're going to live as we are in a world of supply and demand, then journalists had better find a way to create a demand for good journalism. #Quote by Bill Kovach
Journalism quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#16. The only authors whom I acknowledge as American are the journalists. They, indeed, are not great writers, but they speak the language of their countrymen, and make themselves heard by them. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Journalism quotes by Megan Fox
#17. Real crime-beat investigative journalism does seem to be really dwindling, especially in this age with everything being centered around iPhones. Everyone's a journalist today, essentially. Every pedestrian on the street has the potential of capturing a big story on their mobile device and then selling it and making a lot of money. #Quote by Megan Fox
Journalism quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#18. Later on in Culture and Society, Williams scores a few points by reprinting some absolutist sentences that, taken on their own, represent exaggerations or generalisations. It was a strength and weakness of Orwell's polemical journalism that he would begin an essay with a bold and bald statement designed to arrest attention - a tactic that, as Williams rightly notices, he borrowed in part from GK Chesterton and George Bernard Shaw. No regular writer can re-read his own output of ephemera without encountering a few wince-making moments of this kind; Williams admits to 'isolating' them but has some fun all the same. The flat sentence 'a humanitarian is always a hypocrite' may contain a particle of truth - does in fact contain such a particle - but will not quite do on its own. Other passages of Orwell's, on the failure of the Western socialist movement, read more convincingly now than they did when Williams was mocking them, but are somewhat sweeping for all that. And there are the famous outbursts of ill-temper against cranks and vegetarians and homosexuals, which do indeed disfigure the prose and (even though we still admire Pope and Swift for the heroic unfairness of their invective) probably deserve rebuke. However, Williams betrays his hidden bias even when addressing these relatively easy targets. He upbraids Orwell for the repeated use of the diminutive word 'little' as an insult ('The typical Socialist ... a prim little man,' 'the typical little bowlerhatted sneak,' etc. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Journalism quotes by Eduardo Galeano
#19. I am grateful to journalism for waking me up to the realities of the world. #Quote by Eduardo Galeano
Journalism quotes by David Simon
#20. A TV show can't hold people and institutions to account like good journalism can. #Quote by David Simon
Journalism quotes by Nick Davies
#21. The friends of tabloid newspapers often point out that their journalism exists only because millions of people pay money to read it. #Quote by Nick Davies
Journalism quotes by Andrew Marr
#22. Journalism is often simply the industrialisation of gossip. #Quote by Andrew Marr
Journalism quotes by Peter Landesman
#23. Even the two novels I've written were based on true stories. It's how I'm wired - real life is fascinating and fantastical enough. The kind of journalism I did unpeeled lids from cans otherwise sealed. #Quote by Peter Landesman
Journalism quotes by Katie Couric
#24. [I am enthusiastic about journalism because] it's a craft that can ... galvanize an often complacent citizenry, and make a difference. #Quote by Katie Couric
Journalism quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#25. Commenting acidly on a writer whom I perhaps too naively admired, my old classics teacher put on his best sneer to ask: 'Wouldn't you say, Hitchens, that his writing was somewhat journalistic?' This lofty schoolmaster employed my name sarcastically, and stressed the last term as if he meant it to sting, and it rankled even more than he had intended. Later on in life, I found that I still used to mutter and improve my long-meditated reply. Émile Zola - a journalist. Charles Dickens - a journalist. Thomas Paine - another journalist. Mark Twain. Rudyard Kipling. George Orwell - a journalist par excellence. Somewhere in my cortex was the idea to which Orwell himself once gave explicit shape: the idea that 'mere' writing of this sort could aspire to become an art, and that the word 'journalist' - like the ironic modern English usage of the word 'hack' - could lose its association with the trivial and the evanescent. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Journalism quotes by Mary Augusta Ward
#26. The only thing which can keep journalism alive - journalism, which is born of the moment, serves the moment, and, as a rule, dies with the moment - is - again the Stevensonian secret! - charm. #Quote by Mary Augusta Ward
Journalism quotes by Frank Miller
#27. The day you write to please everyone you no longer are in journalism. You are in show business. #Quote by Frank Miller
Journalism quotes by Mitch Albom
#28. I earned a mater's degree in journalism and took the first job offered, as a sports writer. Instead of chasing my own fame, I wrote about famous athletes chasing theirs. #Quote by Mitch Albom
Journalism quotes by T.R. Darling
#29. Journalists from the future would appear as history was made. He got nervous as a crowd of them filmed his blind date from outside the cafe. #Quote by T.R. Darling
Journalism quotes by Chris Hughes
#30. The web has introduced a competitive, and some might argue hostile, landscape for long, in-depth, resource-intensive journalism. #Quote by Chris Hughes
Journalism quotes by Jonathan Galassi
#31. There's an old saw about journalism that the more you know about a subject, the less sense reporting about it makes. #Quote by Jonathan Galassi
Journalism quotes by Gwenda Bond
#32. This was the first time I had not just rushed in and followed my instincts, and it wasn't working out. I was beginning to actively regret it. #Quote by Gwenda Bond
Journalism quotes by Scott Pelley
#33. The quality of life in America is dependent on the quality of the journalism. Most people don't realize that, but if you think about it, journalism is one of the pillars on which our society is perched. #Quote by Scott Pelley
Journalism quotes by Margaret Atwood
#34. The newspaper journalists like to believe the worst; they can sell more papers that way, as one of them told me himself; for even upstanding and respectable people dearly love to read ill of others. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Journalism quotes by Colin Powell
#35. The media only report stupid or careless answers, not stupid or unfair questions. #Quote by Colin Powell
Journalism quotes by Marvin Kalb
#36. Matt Drudge's role in the Monica Lewinski scandal] strikes me as a new and graphic power of the Internet to influence mainstream journalism. And I suspect that over the next couple of years that impact will grow to the point where it will damage journalism's ability to do its job professionally, to check out information before publication, to be mindful of the necessity to publish and broadcast reliable, substantiated information. #Quote by Marvin Kalb
Journalism quotes by Vera Brittain
#37. The tragedy of journalism lies in its impermanence; the very topicality which gives it brilliance condemns it to an early death. Too often it is a process of flinging bright balloons in the path of the hurricane, a casting of priceless petals upon the rushing surface of a stream. #Quote by Vera Brittain
Journalism quotes by Mary C. Ames
#38. Only a newspaper! Quick read, quick lost, Who sums the treasure that it carries hence? Torn, trampled under feet, who counts thy cost, Star-eyed intelligence? #Quote by Mary C. Ames
Journalism quotes by Laurence Shames
#39. I've never written a hard journalism piece in my life. I've never wanted to do that. #Quote by Laurence Shames
Journalism quotes by Tina Brown
#40. In the end, Dan Rather's legend skewered him, CBS and the craft of journalism. #Quote by Tina Brown
Journalism quotes by Carl Bernstein
#41. They walked across 15th Street to the Madison Hotel's Montpelier Room, an opulent French restaurant. Bradlee asked for a corner table, and began the conversation. 'You'd better bring me up to date because ... ' He turned to order lunch in perfect French, and then turned back to Woodward. ' ... our cocks are on the chopping block now and I just want to know a little bit more about this. #Quote by Carl Bernstein
Journalism quotes by Reni Eddo-Lodge
#42. Whiteness in the press had positioned itself for too long as the self-appointed, self-referential arbiter of racial problems, in which it pondered why these black and brown communities were so prone to violence and poverty, without a shred of self-awareness. #Quote by Reni Eddo-Lodge
Journalism quotes by Shweta Ganesh Kumar
#43. The reason why she had chosen journalism was because of those who had done so before her. Stalwart women and men who reported stories in the days before the Internet. Before it was fashionable to learn Mass Communication. A long time before being a TV reporter and calling up your family to see your face beamed to their homes was an in thing. They were those who had left their families behind as they pursued the truth, opting to go to jail when the government hounded them to reveal their sources. Men and women that would rather quit than write editorials the management wanted them to write. Journalists who never wrote a word they would have to disown. Journalists who took their last breath as they wrote an article was true to what they believed in. They would never sit down and take stock of the stories they had covered and written saying, So what if twenty of these are non-stories, I at least had five I believed in. #Quote by Shweta Ganesh Kumar
Journalism quotes by George Patton
#44. It is sad and shocking to think that victory and the lives of thousands of men are pawns to the "fear of They," and the writings of a group of unprincipled reporters, and weak-kneed congressmen. #Quote by George Patton
Journalism quotes by Bob Greene
#45. The meat-and-potatoes work of world journalism is performed by the wire service reporters. #Quote by Bob Greene
Journalism quotes by Maria Karvouni
#46. The opinion of each person matters. All opinions are subjective. We should stop relying on others' views and start believing in our own instinct whatever position in the society we have. All are equal. #Quote by Maria Karvouni
Journalism quotes by Anne Robinson
#47. I eventually got a job with a television company, started to see how exciting journalism could be as a career, and decided that was what I wanted to do. #Quote by Anne Robinson
Journalism quotes by Andy Grove
#48. A career in journalism suddenly lost its appeal. #Quote by Andy Grove
Journalism quotes by Jeff Smith
#49. I never graduated, but I was kind of floating between journalism and art, because neither one wanted to claim me, as a cartoonist. #Quote by Jeff Smith
Journalism quotes by Upton Sinclair
#50. Journalism is one of the devices whereby industrial autocracy keeps its control over political democracy; it is the day-by-day, between-elections propaganda, whereby the minds of the people are kept in a state of acquiescence, so that when the crisis of an election comes, they go to the polls and cast their ballots for either one of the two candidates of their exploiters. #Quote by Upton Sinclair
Journalism quotes by Anne Robinson
#51. I've always taken risks and bought property well. As journalism wasn't particularly well paid, buying homes and selling them for profit improved my income. #Quote by Anne Robinson
Journalism quotes by Fareed Zakaria
#52. In the world of journalism, the personal Web site ("blog") was hailed as the killer of the traditional media. In fact it has become hailed as the killer of the traditional media. In fact it has become something quite different. Far from replacing newspapers and magazines, the best blogs-and the best are very clever- have become guides to them, pointing to unusual sources and commenting on familiar ones. They have become mediators for the informed public. #Quote by Fareed Zakaria
Journalism quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#53. The most consistent and ultimately damaging failure of political journalism in America (is that it) has its roots in the clubby/cocktail personal relationships that inevitably develop between politicians and journalists. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Journalism quotes by Eliza Griswold
#54. Poetry allows me to write about what I don't know, whereas journalism demands a higher level of certainty to be worthy of being written. #Quote by Eliza Griswold
Journalism quotes by Cameron Crowe
#55. I think there's always satisfaction that comes from digging in and telling a story and being on the front line and writing about it. I think there's a venue available if you look. Even print journalism is in good shape in areas. #Quote by Cameron Crowe
Journalism quotes by Ice-T
#56. That became the signature Ice-T style - rhymes that were "topical" and "vividly optical." To me it was street-level journalism, real-life observations told in poetry. That's the vision I tried to bring to all my recordings. #Quote by Ice-T
Journalism quotes by Elizabeth Massie
#57. (aspiring journalist to Carl Kolchak)
'Andy knows I want to be a reporter. Like you'
This took me by surprise. 'Sallie, my dear, nobody wants to be a reporter like me. #Quote by Elizabeth Massie
Journalism quotes by Ezra Klein
#58. The news is supposed to be a mirror held up to the world, but the world is far too vast to fit in our mirror. The fundamental thing the media does all day, every day, is decide what to cover - decide, that is, what is newsworthy.

Here's the dilemma: to decide what to cover is to become the shaper of the news rather than a mirror held up to the news. It makes journalists actors rather than observers. It annihilates our fundamental conception of ourselves. And yet it's the most important decision we make. If we decide to give more coverage to Hillary Clinton's emails than to her policy proposals - which is what we did - then we make her emails more important to the public's understanding of her character and potential presidency than her policy proposals. In doing so, we shape not just the news but the election, and thus the country.

While I'm critical of the specific decision my industry made in that case, this problem is inescapable. The news media isn't just an actor in politics. It's arguably the most powerful actor in politics. It's the primary intermediary between what politicians do and what the public knows. The way we try to get around this is by conceptually outsourcing the decisions about what we cover to the idea of newsworthiness. If we simply cover what's newsworthy, then we're not the ones making those decisions - it's the neutral, external judgment of news worthiness that bears responsibility. The problem is that no one, anywhere, h #Quote by Ezra Klein
Journalism quotes by William Faulkner
#59. The best fiction is far more true than any journalism. #Quote by William Faulkner
Journalism quotes by Matt Heineman
#60. If you end up with the story you started with, you weren't listening along the way. #Quote by Matt Heineman
Journalism quotes by Anthony Sampson
#61. In America journalism is apt to be regarded as an extension of history: in Britain, as an extension of conversation. #Quote by Anthony Sampson
Journalism quotes by David Halberstam
#62. These days there's all too much coverage of pesudo-events about extraordinarily inauthentic people doing inauthentic things. #Quote by David Halberstam
Journalism quotes by Harold Evans
#63. Journalism is not easy. It's the first rough draft. I don't think you need to wait around until you have the definitive thing. You record what's there; don't delude yourself that this is the ultimate historical view. #Quote by Harold Evans
Journalism quotes by Pete Hamill
#64. I like to say that journalism is the graduate school from which you never graduate. #Quote by Pete Hamill
Journalism quotes by George Orwell
#65. * *Do remember that dishonesty and cowardice always have to be paid for.*Don't imagine that for years on end you can make yourself the boot-licking propagandist of the Soviet régime, or any other régime, and then suddenly return to mental decency. Once a whore, always a whore. #Quote by George Orwell
Journalism quotes by Stewart Stafford
#66. What's the difference between fact and opinion? Fact is the centre of the wheel and opinions are the myriad spokes emanating out from it. #Quote by Stewart Stafford
Journalism quotes by Thomas Sowell
#67. The media are less a window on reality, than a stage on which officials and journalists perform self-scripted, self-serving fictions. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Journalism quotes by Paul Theroux
#68. But: all journeys were return journeys. The farther one traveled, the nakeder one got, until, towards the end, ceasing to be animated by any scene, one was most oneself, a man in a bed surrounded by empty bottles. The man who says, "I've got a wife and kids" is far from home; at home he speaks of Japan. But he does not know - how could he? - that the scenes changing in the train window from Victoria Station to Tokyo Central are nothing compared to the change in himself; and travel writing, which cannot but be droll at the outset, moves from journalism to fiction, arriving promptly as the Kodama Echo at autobiography. From there any further travel makes a beeline to confession, the embarrassed monologue in a deserted bazaar. The anonymous hotel room in a strange city ... #Quote by Paul Theroux
Journalism quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#69. Of real sensational journalism, as it exists in France, in Ireland, and in America, we have no trace in this country. When a journalist in Ireland wishes to create a thrill, he creates a thrill worth talking about. He denounces a leading Irish member for corruption, or he charges the whole police system with a wicked and definite conspiracy. When a French journalist desires a frisson there is a frisson; he discovers, let us say, that the President of the Republic has murdered three wives. Our yellow journalists invent quite as unscrupulously as this; their moral condition is, as regards careful veracity, about the same. But it is their mental calibre which happens to be such that they can only invent calm and even reassuring things. The fictitious version of the massacre of the envoys of Pekin was mendacious, but it was not interesting, except to those who had private reasons for terror or sorrow. It was not connected with any bold and suggestive view of the Chinese situation. It revealed only a vague idea that nothing could be impressive except a great deal of blood. Real sensationalism, of which
I happen to be very fond, may be either moral or immoral. But even when it is most immoral, it requires moral courage. For it is one of the most dangerous things on earth genuinely to surprise anybody. If you make any sentient creature jump, you render it by no means improbable that it will jump on you. But the leaders of this movement have no moral courage or immoral courage; #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Journalism quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#70. Political pundits are under professional obligation to regard the obvious as being too obvious. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Journalism quotes by Adam Nicolson
#71. Eric Schlosser's book on the economy and strategies of the fast-food business should be read by anyone who likes to take their children to fast-food restaurants. I shall certainly never do that again. He employs a long, cold burn, a quiet and impassioned accumulation of detail, with calm, wit and clarity. ( ... ) Fast Food Nation is witness to the rigour and seriousness of the best American journalism, readable, reliable and extremely carefully done. #Quote by Adam Nicolson
Journalism quotes by Alexander Cockburn
#72. The First Law of Journalism: to confirm existing prejudice, rather than contradict it. #Quote by Alexander Cockburn
Journalism quotes by Ward Churchill
#73. Tailoring the facts to fit one's theory constitutes neither good science nor good journalism. Rather, it is intellectually dishonest and, when published for consumption by a mass audience, adds up to propaganda. #Quote by Ward Churchill
Journalism quotes by Walter Cronkite
#74. And that's the way it is. #Quote by Walter Cronkite
Journalism quotes by Robert Redford
#75. I'm fascinated by journalism. I put a keen eye, not a negative eye, on its role, particularly how it is changed by the times we're living in. #Quote by Robert Redford
Journalism quotes by Richard Engel
#76. Trouble seemed to follow me around. The late Tim Russert, my friend and the esteemed moderator of NBC's Meet the Press, once joked, "Richard, just don't come to Washington. #Quote by Richard Engel
Journalism quotes by Bill Moyers
#77. Sure enough, as merger has followed merger, journalism has been driven further down the hierarchy of values in the huge conglomerates that dominate what we see, read and hear. And to feed the profit margins journalism has been directed to other priorities than "the news we need to know to keep our freedoms" #Quote by Bill Moyers
Journalism quotes by Jean De La Fontaine
#78. Every newspaper editor owes tribute to the devil. #Quote by Jean De La Fontaine
Journalism quotes by Richard M. Nixon
#79. The press is the enemy. #Quote by Richard M. Nixon
Journalism quotes by Carl Bernstein
#80. During discussions in his office, Bradlee frequently picked up an undersize sponge-rubber basketball from the table and tossed it toward a hoop attached by suction cups to the picture window. The gesture was indicative both of the editor's short attention span and of a studied informality. There was an alluring combination of aristocrat and commoner about Bradlee: Boston Brahmin, Harvard, the World War II Navy, press attaché at the U.S. Embassy in Paris, police-beat reporter, news-magazine political reporter and Washington bureau chief of Newsweek.

-- Carl Bernstein, Bob Woodward #Quote by Carl Bernstein
Journalism quotes by Joel Landau
#81. The thing is - any author on the internet doesn't weigh nearly enough as an author in the real world. #Quote by Joel Landau
Journalism quotes by Doris Lessing
#82. The point is, that the function of the novel seems to be changing; it has become an outpost of journalism; we read novels for information about areas of life we don't know - Nigeria, South Africa, the American army, a coal-mining village, coteries in Chelsea, etc. We read to find out what is going on. One novel in five hundred or a thousand has the quality a novel should have to make it a novel - the quality of philosophy. #Quote by Doris Lessing
Journalism quotes by Henry Fielding
#83. None of our political writers ... take notice of any more than three estates, namely, Kings, Lords and Commons ... passing by in silence that very large and powerful body which form the fourth estate in the community ... the Mob. #Quote by Henry Fielding
Journalism quotes by Bobby Ghosh
#84. Even before I joined journalism, I knew that this is what I wanted to do. Tintin was an early inspiration. #Quote by Bobby Ghosh
Journalism quotes by Katharine Graham
#85. I mean, I think everybody in the world, all the young people in the world, went to journalism school and wanted to investigate everything. And I think they overdid it. I think that you have to investigate things, you have to e skeptical, but you shouldn't be vengeful. You have to be fair and you have to be careful. #Quote by Katharine Graham
Journalism quotes by Carl Bernstein
#86. Soon, challenges against the Post's ownership of two television stations in Florida were filed with the Federal Communications Commission. The price of Post stock on the American Exchange dropped by almost 50 percent. Among the challengers - forming the organizations of 'citizens' who proposed to become the new FCC licensees - were several persons long associated with the President.
Carl Bernsein, Bob Woodward #Quote by Carl Bernstein
Journalism quotes by Denis Diderot
#87. All things must be examined, debated, investigated without exception and without regard for anyone's feelings. #Quote by Denis Diderot
Journalism quotes by Glenn Greenwald
#88. When journalists are 'accused' of being 'advocates', that means: challenging and deviating from DC orthodoxies. #Quote by Glenn Greenwald
Journalism quotes by Guillermo Cabrera Infante
#89. There were influences in my life that were more important than journalism, such as comic strips and radio. #Quote by Guillermo Cabrera Infante
Journalism quotes by Alberto Cairo
#90. In a time when society is drowning in tsunamis of misinformation, it is possible to change the world for the better if we repeat the truth often and loud enough. #Quote by Alberto Cairo
Journalism quotes by Steven Pinker
#91. I think that a failure of statistical thinking is the major intellectual shortcoming of our universities, journalism and intellectual culture. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Journalism quotes by Jim Lehrer
#92. I'm an expert on the NewsHour and it isn't how I practice journalism. I am not involved in the story. I serve only as a reporter or someone asking questions. I am not the story. #Quote by Jim Lehrer
Journalism quotes by Gwenda Bond
#93. I didn't mind walking into danger on my own. Not the concept of it, anyway. #Quote by Gwenda Bond
Journalism quotes by Russell Baker
#94. After two years studying what rewrite men did with the facts I phoned them, I knew that journalism was essentially a task of stringing together seamlessly an endless series of cliches. #Quote by Russell Baker
Journalism quotes by Michael Connelly
#95. I've been able to write at least one book a year for 20 years, and I don't think I would've had that kind of drive if I hadn't come out of the journalism business. #Quote by Michael Connelly
Journalism quotes by Ben Bradlee
#96. A moment from another world! Imagine a reporter dictating an exclusive story, a lead story, sourced from the President of the United States, from a telephone just off the White House dance floor to the strains of Lester Lanin's dance band. #Quote by Ben Bradlee
Journalism quotes by Irving Kristol
#97. Anyone who knows anything about journalism knows that reporters are rarely in a position to investigate anything. They lack the authority to subpoena witnesses, to cross-examine, to scrutinize official records. They are lucky to get their phone calls returned. #Quote by Irving Kristol
Journalism quotes by Craig Newmark
#98. A lot of people, myself included, are excited about blogging and stuff like that, citizen journalism, but I do remind people that no matter how excited we are, there's no substitute for professional writing, no substitute for professional editing, and no substitute for professional fact-checking. #Quote by Craig Newmark
Journalism quotes by Edward R. Murrow
#99. We cannot make good news out of bad practice. #Quote by Edward R. Murrow
Journalism quotes by Milan Kundera
#100. Who is the pioneer of modern journalism? Not Hemingway who wrote of his experiences in the trenches, not Orwell who spent a year of his life with the Parisian poor, not Egon Erwin Kisch the expert on Prague prostitutes, but Oriana Fallaci who in the years 1969 to 1972 published a series of interviews with the most famous politicians of the time. Those interviews were more than mere conversations; they were duels. Before the powerful politicians realized that they were fighting under unequal conditions
for she was allowed to ask questions but they were not
they were already on the floor of the ring, KO'ed. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Journalism quotes by Alice Minium
#101. In addition, the distortion of actual crime statistics vs. media coverage, shows that news outlets portray black Americans being depicted as suspects or criminals at a rate that exceeds actual arrest statistics for those same crimes by a whopping 24 percentage points- a disparity which reveals a horrific implicit bias in reporting. #Quote by Alice Minium
Journalism quotes by Eddie Vedder
#102. These pop songs almost feel like tabloid journalism, in a way. It's c**p that people seem to like. And I don't know if it has meaning. I don't know if one of the pop songs of the summer has any fibre in it. People are consuming it, and is it healthy? ... Maybe there's some healthy property or some restorative property that I'm not receiving. It seems like it has a really high fructose content. #Quote by Eddie Vedder
Journalism quotes by Pete Hamill
#103. Quite simply, I love newspapers and the men and women who make them. Newspapers have given me a full, rich life. They have provided me with a ringside seat at some of the most extraordinary events in my time on the planet. They have been my university. They have helped feed, house and educate my children. I want them to go on and on and on. #Quote by Pete Hamill
Journalism quotes by Nora Ephron
#104. The image of the journalist as wallflower at the orgy has been replaced by the journalist as the life of the party. #Quote by Nora Ephron
Journalism quotes by Roone Arledge
#105. Every person working in sports journalism today owes a tremendous debt to Howard Cosell. His greatest contribution was elevating sports reporting out of daily play-by-play and placing it in the larger context of society. #Quote by Roone Arledge
Journalism quotes by Jeff Jarvis
#106. Then I narrowed the definition of the journalism sharply to focus on the journalism that matters, arguing that if it is not advocacy, it is not journalism - that is, if it does not strive to have a positive impact on the lives of citizens, then it is not journalism. If it does not hold power to account on behalf of citizens, it is not journalism. If it merely covers the baseball game or the county fair or the latest fire, that is not necessarily journalism. Journalism changes its world. #Quote by Jeff Jarvis
Journalism quotes by Arianna Huffington
#107. The Huffington Post Investigative Fund's goal is to produce a broad range of investigative journalism created by both staff reporters and freelance writers, with a focus on working with the many experienced reporters and writers impacted by the economic contraction. The pieces will range from long-form investigations to short breaking news stories and will be presented in a variety of media - including text, audio, and video. #Quote by Arianna Huffington
Journalism quotes by Regina Hall
#108. I've always loved shows like '48 Hours' and 'Dateline,' and I've always been passionate about getting to the truth, and journalism. #Quote by Regina Hall
Journalism quotes by Otto Schily
#109. Freedom of the press is not questioned when investigative journalism unearths scandals, But that does not mean that every classified state document should be made available to journalists. #Quote by Otto Schily
Journalism quotes by Cassandra Clare
#110. Jessamine recoiled from the paper as if it were a snake. "A lady does not read the newspaper. The society pages, perhaps, or the theater news. Not this filth."

Journalism quotes by Karl Kraus
#111. If the reporter has killed our imagination with his truth, he threatens our life with his lies. #Quote by Karl Kraus
Journalism quotes by Jonathan Alter
#112. The basic problem is with the business model of journalism. That business model is premised on the idea that talk is cheap and reporting is expensive. #Quote by Jonathan Alter
Journalism quotes by Michael Hastings
#113. You basically have to be willing to devote your life to journalism if you want to break in. Treat it like it's medical school or law school. #Quote by Michael Hastings
Journalism quotes by Joshua Oppenheimer
#114. The function of journalism is, primarily, to uncover vital new information in the public interest and to put that information in a context so that we can use it to improve the human condition. #Quote by Joshua Oppenheimer
Journalism quotes by Jamie Johnson
#115. I think you can do a lot with fiction, and in some cases you can say even more in fiction than you can in straight-up documentary journalism. #Quote by Jamie Johnson
Journalism quotes by Tom Stoppard
#116. I think journalism is important. #Quote by Tom Stoppard
Journalism quotes by Shashi Tharoor
#117. No one says "Gee Whiz!" very much these days, of course, not even in America - both because that expression has long since been supplanted by others more colourful and less printable, and because our capacity for surprise has long since been dulled by a surfeit of sources. #Quote by Shashi Tharoor
Journalism quotes by Walter Isaacson
#118. I think when money starts to corrupt journalism, it undermines the journalism, and it undermines the credibility of the product, and you end up not succeeding. #Quote by Walter Isaacson
Journalism quotes by Isabel Allende
#119. He understood then that all his exploits as a reporter, the feats that had won him such recognition and fame, were merely an attempt to keep his most ancient fears at bay, a stratagem for taking refuge behind a lens to test whether reality was more tolerable from that perspective. #Quote by Isabel Allende
Journalism quotes by Marcel Proust
#120. The fault I find with our journalism is that it forces us to take an interest in some fresh triviality or other every day, whereas only three or four books in a lifetime give us anything that is of real importance. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Journalism quotes by Upton Sinclair
#121. American journalism is a class institution, serving the rich and spurning the poor. #Quote by Upton Sinclair
Journalism quotes by Lynsey Addario
#122. I got rejected from journalism school! #Quote by Lynsey Addario
Journalism quotes by Richard Brinsley Sheridan
#123. The newspapers! Sir, they are the most villainous - licentious - abominable - infernal - Not that I ever read them - no - I make it a rule never to look into a newspaper. #Quote by Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Journalism quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#124. 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. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Journalism quotes by Henry Rollins
#125. More and more, journalism seems to have hopped out of Truth's pocket and crept into another. #Quote by Henry Rollins
Journalism quotes by Larisa Alexandrovna
#126. I think the Internet is to MSM what TV was to yellow journalism. #Quote by Larisa Alexandrovna
Journalism quotes by Maxine Cheshire
#127. [To the editor of the Harlan, Kentucky, Daily Enterprise, as a kindergartener:] I know everything that goes on in this town, and if you give me a job so will you. #Quote by Maxine Cheshire
Journalism quotes by Ian Hargreaves
#128. It is easy for journalism to be morally casual, even as it makes large moral claims for itself. So when journalism is accused by those it serves of privileging sensation before significance, celebrity before achievement, intrusion before purposeful investigation and entertainment before reliability, the charge demands a response. Journalism stands accused of being not so much a public service as a public health hazard. #Quote by Ian Hargreaves
Journalism quotes by Tony DiCicco
#129. Coaching soccer, like disciplines including journalism, you'll always learn if you're open to it, you'll learn from your players. If that's being smart, fair enough. #Quote by Tony DiCicco
Journalism quotes by Rivera Sun
#130. All photos speak a thousand words. This one contained a library. #Quote by Rivera Sun
Journalism quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#131. We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the drugs began to take hold. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Journalism quotes by Carl Bernstein
#132. Sussman had the ability to seize facts and lock them in his memory, where they remained poised for instants recall. More than any other editor at the Post, or Bernstein and Woodward, Sussman became a walking compendium of Watergate knowledge, a reference source to be summoned when even the library failed. On a deadline, he would pump these facts into a story in a constant infusion, working up a body of significant information to support what otherwise seemed like the weakest of revelations. In Sussman's mind, everything fitted. Watergate was a puzzle and he was a collector of the pieces.

-- Carl Bernstein, Bob Woodward #Quote by Carl Bernstein
Journalism quotes by H.L. Mencken
#133. No reporter of my generation, whatever his genius, ever really rated spats and a walking stick until he had covered both a lynching and a revolution. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Journalism quotes by Lionel Barber
#134. In hindsight, Watergate was a curse as well as a blessing for American journalism. The courageous reporting of the 'Post' and the 'New York Times' - coupled with the favourable Supreme Court rulings on publication of the Pentagon Papers - were landmarks for the interpretation of First Amendment rights and the freedom of the press. #Quote by Lionel Barber
Journalism quotes by David Simon
#135. More people pay attention to fiction and to narrative than pay attention to journalism. That's quite sad. More people pay attention to television than to prose. That's equally sad, if not more so. #Quote by David Simon
Journalism quotes by Andrew Vachss
#136. I think people should be consumers of journalism. #Quote by Andrew Vachss
Journalism quotes by Christiane Amanpour

Journalism quotes by Dan Rather
#138. Journalism is not a precise science, it's a crude art #Quote by Dan Rather
Journalism quotes by Robert Fisk
#139. And I think, in the end, that is the best definition of journalism I have heard; to challenge authority - all authority - especially so when governments and politicians take us to war, when they have decided that they will kill and others will die. #Quote by Robert Fisk
Journalism quotes by Phil Graham
#140. [News is] a first rough draft of history. #Quote by Phil Graham
Journalism quotes by Kevin Barry
#141. I think journalism is useful training for a writer in the way it takes the preciousness out of the pragmatic side of the craft. #Quote by Kevin Barry
Journalism quotes by Tom Rachman
#142. I had pictured journalism as I'd seen it in the most ennobling films, where the reporter battles for the truth, propelled by conviction, and is triumphant. There are journalists who fit that ideal. #Quote by Tom Rachman
Journalism quotes by Robert Fisk
#143. Equal time is not necessary when dealing with evil. Nazis do not merit equal or fair treatment. #Quote by Robert Fisk
Journalism quotes by Gwen Ifill
#144. Don't count out other amazing programming like Frontline. You will still find more hours of in-depth news programming, investigative journalism and analysis on PBS than on any other outlet. #Quote by Gwen Ifill
Journalism quotes by Miller Williams
#145. Too many poets write poems which are only difficult on the surface, difficult because the dramatic situation is easily misunderstood. It's not difficult to write poems that are misunderstood. A drunk, a three-year-old-they are easily misunderstood. What is difficult is being clear and mysterious at the same time. The dramatic situation needs to be as clear in a poem as it is in a piece of good journalism. The why is part of the mystery, but the who, what, where, and when should all be understood. #Quote by Miller Williams
Journalism quotes by Marshall McLuhan
#146. The real news is bad news. #Quote by Marshall McLuhan
Journalism quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#147. What sells, today, is whatever Fucks You Up - whatever short-circuits your brain and grounds it out for the longest possible time. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Journalism quotes by Susan Sontag
#148. Reading usually precedes writing. And the impulse to write is almost always fired by reading. Reading, the love of reading, is what makes you dream of becoming a writer. #Quote by Susan Sontag
Journalism quotes by Oriana Fallaci
#149. Journalism combines adventure with culture. #Quote by Oriana Fallaci
Journalism quotes by Glenn Greenwald
#150. A key purpose of journalism is to provide an adversarial check on those who wield the greatest power by shining a light on what they do in the dark, and informing the public about those acts. #Quote by Glenn Greenwald
Journalism quotes by H.L. Mencken
#151. Journalism is to politician as dog is to lamp-post. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Journalism quotes by Dan Rather
#152. I got addicted. News, particularly daily news, is more addictive than crack cocaine, more addictive than heroin, more addictive than cigarettes. #Quote by Dan Rather
Journalism quotes by Robert Faurisson
#153. As for the petty little world of journalism, the media demonstrates how it, more than anyone, is careful to traffic only in authorized ideas and wares; while at the same time it fosters, through its antics, the illusion of a free circulation of ideas and opinions - not unlike jesters in a tyrant's court. #Quote by Robert Faurisson
Journalism quotes by David Gregory
#154. As a journalist, I've always treaded carefully about being Jewish and caring a lot about Israel and having that not become too big of an issue that could affect my journalism. But I also don't think it's essential to my Judaism, as I think it might be for some other people. #Quote by David Gregory
Journalism quotes by Kurt Loder
#155. You find the most important thing that really grabs you, and put it right up top. Don't bury the lead. Put it at the top. Best thing to do. Never go wrong that way. It's an immutable law of journalism. It just always works. #Quote by Kurt Loder
Journalism quotes by Henry Fielding
#156. A newspaper consists of just the same number of words, whether there be any news in it or not. #Quote by Henry Fielding
Journalism quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#157. Journalism largely consists of saying 'Lord Jones is Dead' to people who never knew that Lord Jones was alive. #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton
Journalism quotes by Frank Zappa
#158. Journalism is kind of scary and of it we should be wary. #Quote by Frank Zappa
Journalism quotes by George Orwell
#159. Real journalism is publishing something that somebody else does not want published - the rest is just public relations ... #Quote by George Orwell
Journalism quotes by Shweta Ganesh Kumar
#160. She still loved the profession and enjoyed the lives and piece to cameras, but she knew it was all a tad too farcical at times. There were far too many stories they reported and forgot. Far too many conflicts that were once headlines and had captured the imaginations of many now awaited resolution, stale and unwanted as yesterday's tea. It was hard to keep up your spirit when you started realizing it was just a job after all and that a headline did not change someone's destiny. Except maybe the reporter's if she or he was picked up by a rival channel for better pay. So getting into the profession wanting to make a difference and working for the greater good as the journalists of yore had done was certainly not an option anymore. #Quote by Shweta Ganesh Kumar
Journalism quotes by Tom Stoppard
#161. The whole notion of journalism being an institution whose fundamental purpose is to educate and inform and even, one might say, elevate, has altered under commercial pressure, perhaps, into a different kind of purpose, which is to divert and distract and entertain. #Quote by Tom Stoppard
Journalism quotes by Mary Kay Andrews
#162. Many years ago I had two small children, and I wanted to be able to be home when they got home from school. And I didn't like the direction journalism was taking. I thought if I could write books, I could work at home and have the best of both worlds. I wrote my first mystery while still working full time, and it didn't sell, but the next one did sell, so I quit my job for the world of fiction. Scary, but I've never regretted it for a single day. #Quote by Mary Kay Andrews
Journalism quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#163. A journalist's job is to collect information," Ovid said to Pete.
"Nope," Pete said. "That's what we do. It's not what they do."
Dellarobia was unready to be pushed out of the conversation just like that. "Then what do you think the news people drive their Jeeps all the way out here for?"
"To shore up the prevailing view of their audience and sponsors."
"Pete takes a dim view of his fellow humans," Ovid said. "He prefers insects.
Dellarobia turned her chair halfway around to face Pete, scraping noisily against the cement floor. "You're saying people only tune in to news they know they're going to agree with?"
"Bingo," said Pete. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Journalism quotes by Alphonse De Lamartine
#164. Before this century shall run out, journalism will be the whole press. Mankind will write their book day by day, hour by hour, page by page. Thought will spread abroad with the rapidity of light
instantly conceived, instantly written, instantly understood at the extremities of the earth. #Quote by Alphonse De Lamartine
Journalism quotes by Robert E.      Lee
#165. Why, sir, in the beginning we appointed all our worst generals to command the armies, and all our best generals to edit the newspapers. As you know, I have planned some campaigns and quite a number of battles. I have given the work all the care and thought I could, and sometimes, when my plans were completed, as far as I could see, they seemed to be perfect. But when I have fought them through, I have discovered defects and occasionally wondered I did not see some of the defects in advance. When it was all over, I found by reading a newspaper that these best editor generals saw all the defects plainly from the start. Unfortunately, they did not communicate their knowledge to me until it was too late." Then, after a pause, he added, with a beautiful, grave expression I can never forget: "I have no ambition but to serve the Confederacy, and do all I can to win our independence. I an willing to serve in any capacity to which the authorities may assign me. I have done the best I could in the field, and have not succeeded as I could wish. I am willing to yield my place to these best generals, and I will do my best for the cause in editing a newspaper."

In the same strain he once remarked to one of his generals: "Even as poor a soldier as I am can generally discover mistakes after it is all over. But if I could only induce these wise gentlemen who see them so clearly beforehand to communicate with me in advance, instead of waiting until the evil has come upon us, to let #Quote by Robert E. Lee
Journalism quotes by Jacques Yonnet
#166. I'd very much like to 'conclude' something from this experiment. Or that it should raise a question in my mind, and a commitment to get to the bottom of the matter, to investigate, to come up with an outline of the beginning of an answer, however ill-defined or trite it might be . . . But no. I'm here to see, hear, observe - to experience. Let others explain. #Quote by Jacques Yonnet
Journalism quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#167. The sole aim of journalism should be service. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Journalism quotes by James D'arcy
#168. I respect journalism. I was always very aware of journalism from a very broad point of view, but I'd say my baptism by fire was doing the Donald Margulies play Time Stands Still. That for me was a real education because I spent a lot of time with some incredible journalists, war reporters particularly - Bob Woodruff, Dexter Filkins - people who were very helpful in painting the picture for me and reading the accounts of people and what they experienced, a lot of PTSD. #Quote by James D'arcy
Journalism quotes by David Remnick
#169. Journalism, some huge percentage of it, should be devoted to putting pressure on power, on nonsense, on chicanery of all kinds and if that's going to invite a lawsuit, well, bring it on. #Quote by David Remnick
Journalism quotes by Cynthia Ozick
#170. An author's extraliterary utterance (blunt information), prenovel or postnovel, may infiltrate journalism; it cannot touch the novel itself. Fiction does not invent out of a vacuum, but it invents; and what it invents is, first, the fabric and cadence of language, and then a slant of idea that sails out of these as a fin lifts from the sea. The art of the novel (worn yet opulent phrase) is in the mix of idiosyncratic language - language imprinted in the writer, like the whorl of a fingertip - and an unduplicable design inscribed on the mind by character and image. Invention has little capacity for the true-to-life snapshot. It is true to its own stirrings. #Quote by Cynthia Ozick
Journalism quotes by William Makepeace Thackeray
#171. The thorn in the cushion of the editorial chair. #Quote by William Makepeace Thackeray
Journalism quotes by Jeff Jarvis
#172. Note well that investigative journalism springs mostly from two sources: whistleblowers' leaks and beat reporters' expertise. #Quote by Jeff Jarvis
Journalism quotes by David Simon
#173. The best I can hope for is that I might provoke a water cooler argument between you and somebody else. But it is not journalism. It doesn't have the rigor of journalism. It doesn't have the proof positive that facts provide. So it can be readily dismissed as mere propaganda. But I can certainly reach more people. #Quote by David Simon
Journalism quotes by Scott Pelley
#174. Science doesn't care, by and large, what the answers are. It's only interested in getting the right answer. And journalism should be very much that way. #Quote by Scott Pelley
Journalism quotes by Carl Bernstein
#175. Deep Throat stamped his foot. 'A conspiracy like this ... a conspiracy investigation ... the rope has to tighten slowly around everyone's neck. You build convincingly from the outer edges in, you get ten times the evidence you need against the Hunts and the Liddys. They feel hopelessly finished - they may not talk right away, but the grip is on them. Then you move up and do the same thing at the next level. If you shoot too high and miss, the everyone feels more secure. Lawyers work this way. I'm sure smart reporters must, too. You've put the investigation back months. It puts everyone on the defensive - editors, FBI agents, everybody has to go into a crouch after this.'
Woodward swallowed hard. He deserved the lecture.
Carl Bernstein, Bob Woodward #Quote by Carl Bernstein
Journalism quotes by Peter York
#176. If you've done a bit of journalism, everyone assumes you must be moving into PR. We're absolutely not becoming a PR agency and we're not turning into Brunswick. We will remain SRU, but we will be owned by the Brunswick Group. It's quite different. #Quote by Peter York
Journalism quotes by Timothy Snyder
#177. Like Hitler, the president used the word lies to mean statements of fact not to his liking, and presented journalism as a campaign against himself. The president was on friendlier terms with the internet, his source for erroneous information that he passed on to millions of people. In #Quote by Timothy Snyder
Journalism quotes by Warren Ellis
#178. Journalism is just a gun. It's only got one bullet in it, but if you aim right, that's all you need. Aim it right, and you can blow a kneecap off the world. #Quote by Warren Ellis

Journalism quotes by Alfred Harmsworth, 1st Viscount Northcliffe
#180. It is hard news that catches readers. Features hold them. #Quote by Alfred Harmsworth, 1st Viscount Northcliffe
Journalism quotes by Amy Hempel
#181. Journalism taught me how to write a sentence that would make someone want to read the next one. You are trained to get rid of anything nonessential. You go in, you start writing your article, assuming a person's going to stop reading the minute you give them a reason. So the trick is: don't give them one. #Quote by Amy Hempel
Journalism quotes by Nicholas Lemann
#182. In journalism, especially, we tend to deal with large, complex systems by finding especially interesting people and story lines to focus on. #Quote by Nicholas Lemann
Journalism quotes by Teresa Nielsen Hayden
#183. The advent of the internet has made so many things possible. Self- published recreational journalism has always been around; but back when you had to at least learn to run a mimeograph, and you had to pay postage to distribute your deathless prose, people who didn't actually have much to say for themselves found other hobbies #Quote by Teresa Nielsen Hayden
Journalism quotes by Brad Pitt
#184. I believe in the power of journalism. To make informed decisions, you have to have an understanding of the dynamics of a situation. And journalism does bridge gaps and creates dialogue. #Quote by Brad Pitt
Journalism quotes by Benazir Bhutto
#185. My father was the Prime Minister of Pakistan. My grandfather had been in politics, too; however, my own inclination was for a job other than politics. I wanted to be a diplomat, perhaps do some journalism - certainly not politics. #Quote by Benazir Bhutto
Journalism quotes by Hallie Burnett
#186. A mere chronicle of observed events will produce only journalism; combined with a sensitive memory, it can produce art. #Quote by Hallie Burnett
Journalism quotes by Dick Schaap
#187. All of journalism is a shrinking art. So much of it is hype. The O.J. Simpson story is a landmark in the decline of journalism. #Quote by Dick Schaap
Journalism quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#188. If you consider the great journalists in history, you don't see too many objective journalists on that list. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Journalism quotes by Alastair Campbell
#189. The junk food of political journalism ... all reshuffle stories are crap. #Quote by Alastair Campbell
Journalism quotes by Jeff Jarvis
#190. Once the industry has been pared to its essence and its essentials, once we determine what matters most and needs protection, once we find the means to support that work, then journalism can grow again. #Quote by Jeff Jarvis
Journalism quotes by Glenn Greenwald
#191. Promoting the human capacity to reason and make decisions: that is the purpose of whistle-blowing, of activism, of political journalism. #Quote by Glenn Greenwald
Journalism quotes by Kristen Chandler
#192. I would laugh at all my provincial inmates, but I'm too busy lusting. I'm not usually interested in a guy with "take a number" on his forehead, but this guy doesn't have a forehead - it's buried in messy blond hair. And he's not one of the twenty guys I've known my entire pubescent life. he smiles like the Fourth of July. What's a dumb girl to do but get in line with everyone else not in his league? I guess journalism just became my most beloved class. #Quote by Kristen Chandler
Journalism quotes by George Packer
#193. Surrendering to jargon is a sign of journalism's dismal lack of self-confidence in the optimized age of content-management systems. #Quote by George Packer
Journalism quotes by Boston Herald
#194. Jason Leopold's News Junkie, an autobiographical look at Leopold's accidental entrance into journalism, is a powerful piece that delves into one man's misery and success. #Quote by Boston Herald
Journalism quotes by Guillermo Cabrera Infante
#195. I wrote for a weekly magazine and then edited a literary magazine, but I did not really feel comfortable with the profession of journalism itself. #Quote by Guillermo Cabrera Infante
Journalism quotes by John L'Heureux
#196. A short story is a writer's way of thinking through experience ... Journalism aims at accuracy, but fiction's aim is truth. The writer distorts reality in the interest of a larger truth. #Quote by John L'Heureux

Journalism quotes by Edward Hirsch
#199. I think the deepest thing is that many fiction writers tell stories but are not elegant writers. But, we're not writing journalism when we're making literature. #Quote by Edward Hirsch
Journalism quotes by Walter Cronkite
#200. The rule of thumb for all news operations is that stories are assigned their importance on the basis of what affects or interests the greatest number of one's readers or viewers. Depending on the nature of the newspaper or broadcast, the balance between what "affects" and what "interests" is quite different. The first criteria of a responsible newspaper such as The New York Times is going to be that which their readers need to know about their world that day - those developments that in one way or another might affect their health, their pocketbooks, the future of themselves and their children. The first criterion of the tabloid is that which "interests" its readers - gossip, sex, scandal. #Quote by Walter Cronkite
