Journalism is concerned with events, poetry with feelings. Journalism is concerned with the look of the world, poetry with the feel of the world.

Archibald MacLeish, poet

Most rock journalism is people who can't write, interviewing people who can't talk, for people who can't read.

Frank Zappa, musician

The facts fairly and honestly presented; truth will take care of itself.

William Allen White, editor

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

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.

Guillermo Cabrera Infante, novelist

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

Craig Brown,

If a person is not talented enough to be a novelist, not smart enough to be a lawyer, and his hands are too shaky to perform operations, he becomes a journalist.

Frank Herbert, writer

Journalism is a kind of profession, or craft, or racket, for people who never wanted to grow up and go out into the real world.

Harry Reasoner,

I still believe that if your aim is to change the world, journalism is a more immediate short-term weapon.

Tom Stoppard, dramatist

Journalists are like dogs, when ever anything moves they begin to bark.

Arthur Schopenhauer, philosopher

The press is like the air, a chartered libertine.

William Pitt, leader

Journalism is organized gossip.

Edward Eggleston, editor

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,

Opinionated writing is always the most difficult... simply because it involves retaining in the cold morning-after crystal of the printed word the burning flow of molten feeling.

Gavin Lyall,

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

Marguerite Duras, novelist

A professional whose job it is to explain to others what it personally does not understand.

Lord Northcliffe, publisher

It's all a sham: I have seen, and I know firsthand, indeed from my own pen, how the organized Right has sabotaged not only journalism but also democracy and truth.

David Brock, author

Reasons for not keeping a notebook: 1) the ambiguity of the reader

Lionel Trilling, critic

The Congressional leaders set the agenda for journalism; it's not the other way around.

Michael Pollan, educator

In the real world, nothing happens at the right place at the right time. It is the job of journalists and historians to correct that.

Mark Twain, author

There's not a better job in journalism than the one we have, seriously on '60 Minutes' - not a better job.

Mike Wallace, journalist

If journalism is good, it is controversial, by its nature.

Julian Assange, activist

I get up in the morning with an idea for a three-volume novel and by nightfall it's a paragraph in my column.

Don Marquis, poet

The big journals and Nobel laureates are the equivalent of Congressional leaders in science journalism.

Michael Pollan, educator

The difference between literature and journalism is that journalism is unreadable and literature is not read.

Oscar Wilde, dramatist

Journalism's ultimate purpose is to inform the reader, to bring him each day a letter from home and never to permit the serving of special interests.

Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, publisher

I find I journalize too tediously. Let me try to abbreviate.

James Boswell, lawyer

Europe has a press that stresses opinions; America a press, radio, and television that emphasize news.

James Reston, journalist

Publishing is a business, but journalism never was and is not essentially a business. Nor is it a profession.

Henry R. Luce, editor

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.

Walter Isaacson, writer

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

Robertson Davies, novelist

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.

Janet Malcolm, writer

Queer Eye for the Straight Guy is a form of service journalism. To be successful, I think it has to be a combination of a good story, it has to be funny, and it also needs to be packed with useful information.

Ted Allen, entertainer

One of the sad things about contemporary journalism is that it actually matters very little. The world now is almost inured to the power of journalism. The best journalism would manage to outrage people. And people are less and less inclined to outrage.

David Simon, author

They take journalism really seriously because they know the force that it is and can be.

Christiane Amanpour, journalist

And I believe that good journalism, good television, can make our world a better place.

Christiane Amanpour, journalist

And I really believe good journalism is good business.

Christiane Amanpour, journalist

As electronic journalism came to be evaluated for its cost effectiveness, the network world began breaking up.

Roger Mudd, journalist

Stanford had no journalism program so I just learned by doing, effectively.

John Pomfret, journalist

Good journalism, I think, represents life and if you try to organize something too neatly it usually blows up in your face and doesn't really happen the way you want it to.

John Pomfret, journalist

Journalism is not just a cause, it's also a wacky profession.

David Talbot, journalist

In any event, the proper question isn't what a journalist thinks is relevant but what his or her audience thinks is relevant. Denying people information they would find useful because you think they shouldn't find it useful is censorship, not journalism.

Michael Kinsley, journalist

I don't think Fox News or Rush Limbaugh need Clinton it turns out. I think there's a hunger out there for - whether it's on the left or right - a more lively and provocative type of political journalism. I think Salon and Fox on the other side have both benefited from that.

David Talbot, journalist

My favorite thing is still journalism. I'm almost 50. This has been my life ever since I was in college.

David Talbot, journalist

Most magazines have become wallpaper, they're all the same, all the same celebrities. It's really an abysmal time in American journalism right now. But occasionally one story or two will pop out.

David Talbot, journalist

After Watergate, which happened when I was in college, I became increasingly inspired by journalism as a way to change the world. It sounds corny, but to wake the public up, to serve a higher cause.

David Talbot, journalist

The only school that let me in was U.C. Santa Cruz, which is where I went. They didn't have a journalism program, so I took sociology, which is the closest thing to journalism.

David Talbot, journalist

If an investigative reporter finds out that someone has been robbing the store, that may be "gotcha" journalism, but it's also good journalism.

Ben Bradlee, editor

The biggest problem in rock journalism is that often the writer's main motivation is to become friends with the band. They're not really journalists; they're people who want to be involved in rock and roll.

Chuck Klosterman, critic

I want the news delivered unbiased. I thought that was the whole point with journalism.

Aaron McGruder, artist

Environmental concern is now firmly embedded in public life: in education, medicine and law; in journalism, literature and art.

Barry Commoner, scientist

There were influences in my life that were more important than journalism, such as comic strips and radio.

Guillermo Cabrera Infante, novelist

Some in journalism consider themselves apart from and to some extent above the people they purport to serve.

Brit Hume, journalist

There's a certain elitism that has crept into the attitudes of some in journalism, and it played out perfectly over the issue of these little American flag lapel pins.

Brit Hume, journalist

You're under pressure when you produce facts. You're working with facts in journalism, but you're under all kinds of formal constraints; there are expectations.

Denis Johnson, writer

In the end, Dan Rather's legend skewered him, CBS and the craft of journalism.

Tina Brown, editor

TV journalism is a much more collaborative, horizontal business than print reporting. It has to be, because of the logistics. Anchors are wholly dependent on producers to do all the hustling.

Tina Brown, editor

I can't think of any other job in journalism where the newsmakers come to you.

Bob Schieffer, journalist

I think journalism is a great way to do public service, to have an impact on your community.

Bob Schieffer, journalist

I always thought writing was the foundation and the basis for journalism in the same way being able to draw is the foundation for art.

Bob Schieffer, journalist

And after about two years, I realized that creative writing was not going to help you ace those biological tests. So I switched over to journalism. I didn't graduate with honors, but I did graduate on time and with some doing.

Bob Schieffer, journalist

I expected to go into journalism or law.

Christie Hefner, businessman

And I started as a journalism major at Ohio State, ended up in theater and I love to read.

Patricia Heaton, actress

Local television news, on both radio and television, is so appalling. Makes print journalism look like the greatest stuff ever written.

Robert McChesney, critic

I think journalism gets measured by the quality of information it presents, not the drama or the pyrotechnics associated with us.

Bob Woodward, journalist

I'm saying that the WMD reporting was not consciously evil. It was bad journalism, even very bad journalism.

Daniel Okrent, editor

I've always enjoyed writing, I graduated with a degree in English; I've done bits of journalism.

Michael York, actor

To conclude: good journalism is one of the models of good conversation and communication in the wider social context.

Rowan D. Williams, clergyman

It is grievous to read the papers in most respects, I agree. More and more I skim the headlines only, for one can be sure what is carried beneath them quite automatically, if one has long been a reader of the press journalism.

Mary Ritter Beard, historian

The central dilemma in journalism is that you don't know what you don't know.

Bob Woodward, journalist

In general, science journalism concerns itself with what has been published in a handful of peer-reviewed journals - Nature, Cell, The New England Journal of Medicine - which set the agenda.

Michael Pollan, educator

The lowest form of popular culture -- lack of information, misinformation, disinformation, 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, journalist

I think there ought to be a club in which preachers and journalists could come together and have the sentimentalism of the one matched with the cynicism of the other. That ought to bring them pretty close to the truth.

Reinhold Niebuhr, theologian

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.

Bill Kovach, journalist

The critical importance of honest journalism and a free flowing, respectful national conversation needs to be had in our country. But it is being buried as collateral damage in a war whose battles include political correctness and ideological orthodoxy.

Juan Williams, journalist

I was probably a B student in high school, but it wasn't until I got to college that I said, 'Oh! This is what it's all about.' And then I became an A student. I studied journalism in college and that's what really kicked it into high gear for me.

Giuliana Rancic, journalist

Journalism constructs momentarily arrested equilibriums and gives disorder an implied order. That is already two steps from reality.

Thomas Griffith, editor

I suggest that what we want to do is not to leave to posterity a great institution, but to leave behind a great tradition of journalism ably practiced in our time.

Henry R. Luce, editor

A composite is a euphemism for a lie. It's disorderly. It's dishonest and it's not journalism.

Fred W. Friendly, producer

The best fiction is far more true than any journalism.

William Faulkner,

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, journalist

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, author

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, historian

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, novelist

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, journalist

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

Horace Greeley, editor

A petty reason perhaps why novelists more and more try to keep a distance from journalists is that novelists are trying to write the truth and journalists are trying to write fiction.

Graham Greene, playwright

If you can't get a job as a pianist in a brothel you become a royal reporter.

Max Hastings,

Our job is like a baker's work -- his rolls are tasty as long as they're fresh; after two days they're stale; after a week, they're covered with mould and fit only to be thrown out.

Ryszard Kapuscinski, journalist

The man must have a rare recipe for melancholy, who can be dull in Fleet Street.

Charles Lamb, critic
