Thanks to my solid academic training, today I can write hundreds of words on virtually any topic without possessing a shred of information which is how I got a good job in journalism.

~~~~~~~

The best use of a journal is to print the largest practical amount of important truth,–truth which tends to make mankind wiser, and thus happier.

~~~~~~~

The day was warm and clear. Kids were playing soccer in the parking lots and women were sunning their babies and having their tea all over the lawns. The scene was entirely too cheery for journalism.

~~~~~~~

The dominant and most deep-dyed trait of the journalist is his timorousness. Where the novelist fearlessly plunges into the water of self-exposure, the journalist stands trembling on the shore in his beach robe. The journalist confines himself to the clean, gentlemanly work of exposing the grieves and shames of others.

~~~~~~~

The editor sat in his sanctum, his countenance furrowed with care, His mind at the bottom of business, his feet at the top of a chair, His chair-arm an elbow supporting, his right hand upholding his head, His eyes on his dusty table, with different documents spread.

~~~~~~~

The fact that a man is a newspaper reporter is evidence of some flaw of character.

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.

~~~~~~~

Not sure, he retorted; you call yourself a journalist, and admit there is a subject under Heaven of which you are not sure!

~~~~~~~

Now he is a statesman, when what he really wants is to be what most reporters are, adult delinquents.

People accuse journalism of being too personal; but to me it has always seemed far too impersonal. It is charged with tearing away the veils from private life; but it seems to me to be always dropping diaphanous but blinding veils between men and men. The Yellow Press is abused for exposing facts which are private; I wish the Yellow Press did anything so valuable. It is exactly the decisive individual touches that it never gives; and a proof of this is that after one has met a man a million times in the newspapers it is always a complete shock and reversal to meet him in real life.

~~~~~~~

Personal columnists are jackals and no jackal has been known to live on grass once he had learned about meat — no matter who killed the meat for him.

~~~~~~~

Put it all in the first paragraph.

~~~~~~~

Put it before them briefly so they will read it, clearly so they will appreciate it, picturesquely so they will remember it and, above all, accurately so they will be guided by its light

~~~~~~~

Rage is the only quality which has kept me, or anybody I have ever studied, writing columns for newspapers.

~~~~~~~

Reporters are like puppets. They simply respond to the pull of the most powerful strings.

~~~~~~~

Rock journalism is people who can”t write interviewing people who can”t talk for people who can”t read.

~~~~~~~

Sir Humphrey insisted that as a matter of principle, Ministers should never know more than they need to know. Like secret agents. Because they may be captured and tortured. ‘By terrorists?’ I asked. ‘By the BBC,’ he replied.

~~~~~~~

SIXTY HORSES WEDGED IN A CHIMNEY’ The story to fit this sensational headline has not turned up.

~~~~~~~

Some of the qualities that go into making a good reporter–aggressiveness, a certain sneakiness, a secretive nature, nosiness, the ability to find out that which someone wants hidden, the inability to take ‘no’ with any sort of grace, a taste for gossip, rudeness, a fair disdain for what people will think of you and an occaisional calculated disregard for rules–are also qualities that go into making a very antisocial human being.

~~~~~~~

Sometimes good journalism is bad public relations.

~~~~~~~

Journalism over here is not only an obsession but a drawback that cannot be overrated.

~~~~~~~

Journalism will kill you, but it will keep you alive while you’re at it.

~~~~~~~

Journalism without a moral position is impossible. Every journalist is a moralist. It’s absolutely unavoidable. A journalist is someone who looks at the world and the way it works, someone who takes a close look at things every day and reports what she sees, someone who represents the world, the event, for others. She cannot do her work without judging what she sees.

~~~~~~~

Journalists are notoriously easy to kid. All you have to do is speak to a journalist in a very serious tone of voice, and he will be certain that you are either telling the truth or a big, important lie.

~~~~~~~

Journalists belong in the gutter because that is where the ruling classes throw their guilty secrets.

~~~~~~~

Journalists write because they have nothing to say, and have something to say because they write.

~~~~~~~

Junk journalism is the evidence of a society that has got at least one thing right, that there should be nobody with the power to dictate where responsible journalism begins

~~~~~~~

Laziness has become the chief characteristic of journalism, displacing incompetence.

~~~~~~~

Liberals have a quaint and touching faith that truth is on their side and an even quainter faith that journalists are on the side of truth.

~~~~~~~

Media is a word that has come to mean bad journalism.

~~~~~~~

Miscellanists are the most popular writers among every people; for it is they who form a communication between the learned and the unlearned, and, as it were, throw a bridge between those two great divisions of the public.

~~~~~~~

Most rock journalism is people who can”t write interviewing people who can”t talk for people who can”t read

~~~~~~~

My work is being destroyed almost as soon as it is printed; One day it is being read; the next day someone”s wrapping fish in it

~~~~~~~

never argue with people who buy ink by the gallon.

~~~~~~~

News is like food: it is the cooking and serving that makes it acceptable, not the material itself.

~~~~~~~

If, for instance, they have heard something from the postman, they attribute it to a semi-official statement; if they have fallen into conversation with a stranger at a bar, they can conscientiously describe him as a source that has hitherto proved unimpeachable.

~~~~~~~

In Washington journalists can afford to live almost as well as people who work for a living.

~~~~~~~

It isn’t what they say anout you, it’s what they whisper.

~~~~~~~

It was a fatal day when the public discovered that the pen is mightier than the paving-stone, and can be made as offensive as the brickbat. They at once sought for the journalist, found him, developed him, and made him their industrious and well-paid servant. It is greatly to be regretted, for both their sakes.

~~~~~~~

It was when reporters became journalists and when objectivity gave way to searching for truth, that an aura of distrust and fear arose around the New Journalist.

~~~~~~~

It was when ‘reporters’ became ‘journalists’ and when ‘objectivity’ gave way to ‘searching for truth,’ that an aura of distrust and fear arose around the New Journalist.

~~~~~~~

Here in the news media, our focus is on speed. When we get hold of some new and possibly inaccurate information, our highest priority is to get it to you, the public, before our competitors do.

An odious exhibition of journalists dabbling their fingers in the stuff of other people’s souls.

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 separate, since his personality and style must progress or deteriorate together, like a married couple in a country where death is the only permissible divorce.

~~~~~~~

Fact that is fact every day is not news; it’s truth. We report news, not truth.
