Quotation Bullet

Journalism is literature in a hurry.
~ Matthew Arnold

 

Report Error

Quotation Bullet

Journalism over here is not only an obsession but a drawback that cannot be overrated. Politicians are frightened of the press, and in the same way as bull-fighting has a brutalizing effect upon Spain (of which she is unconscious), headlines of murder, rape, and rubbish, excite and demoralize the American public.
~ Margot Asquith

 

Report Error

Quotation Bullet

The lowest form of popular culture -- lack of information, misinformation, misinformation, and a contempt for the truth or the reality of most people's lives -- has overrun real journalism. Today, ordinary Americans are being stuffed with garbage.
~ Carl Bernstein

A journalist is a person who has mistaken their calling.
~ Otto Von Bismarck

Quotation Bullet

We need not be theologians to see that we have shifted responsibility for making the world interesting from God to the newspaperman.
~ Daniel J. Boorstin

Quotation Bullet

I find I journalize too tediously. Let me try to abbreviate.
~ James Boswell

Quotation Bullet

Write the news as if your very life depended on it. It does!
~ Heywood Broun

Quotation Bullet

Journalism could be described as turning one's enemies into money.
~ Craig Brown

 

Report Error

Quotation Bullet

Journalism consists largely in saying ''Lord James is dead'' to people who never knew Lord James was alive.
~ Gilbert K. Chesterton

 

Report Error

Quotation Bullet

Journalism is popular, but it is popular mainly as fiction. Life is one world, and life seen in the newspapers another.
~ Gilbert K. Chesterton

 

Report Error

Quotation Bullet

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.
~ Gilbert K. Chesterton

Quotation Bullet

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 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.
~ Claud Cockburn

Quotation Bullet

Literature is the art of writing something that will be read twice; journalism what will be grasped at once.
~ Cyril Connolly

Quotation Bullet

He types his labored column -- weary drudge! Senile fudge and solemn: spare, editor, to condemn these dry leaves of his autumn.
~ Robertson Davies

 

Report Error

Quotation Bullet

I see journalists as the manual workers, the laborers of the word. Journalism can only be literature when it is passionate.
~ Marguerite Duras

 

Report Error

Quotation Bullet

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.
~ Marguerite Duras

 

Report Error

Quotation Bullet

Journalism is organized gossip.
~ Edward Eggleston

 

Report Error

Quotation Bullet

In journalism it is simpler to sound off than it is to find out. It is more elegant to pontificate than it is to sweat.
~ Harold Evans

 

Report Error

Quotation Bullet

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.
~ Georgie Anne Geyer

Quotation Bullet

Journalism will kill you, but it will keep you alive while you're at it.
~ Horace Greeley
