Quotes about Journalists and the Power of the Press

No ideas and the ability to express them – that’s a journalist.
Karl Kraus

Every journalist who is not too stupid or too full of himself to notice what is going on knows that what he does is morally indefensible.
Clive Owen

A veteran journalist has never had time to think twice before he writes.
George Bernard Shaw

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

In America the President reigns for four years, and Journalism governs forever and ever.
Oscar Wilde

The public have an insatiable curiosity to know everything, except what is worth knowing. Journalism, conscious of this, and having tradesman-like habits, supplies their demands.
Oscar Wilde

Jeffrey Bernard

Journalism is merely history’s first draft.
Geoffrey C. Ward

How shall I speak thee, or thy power address Thou God of our idolatry, the Press…. Like Eden’s dead probationary tree, Knowledge of good and evil is from thee.
William Cowper

Oscar Wilde

The only qualities essential for real success in journalism are rat-like cunning, a plausible manner, and a little literary ability.
Nicholas Tomalin

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

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?
Mary Clemmer Ames

Journalism: an ability to meet the challenge of filling the space.
Rebecca West

The great thing about being a print journalist is that you are permitted to duck. Cameramen get killed while the writers are flat on the floor. A war correspondent for the BBC dedicated his memoir to 50 fallen colleagues, and I guarantee you they were all taking pictures. I am only alive because I am such a chicken.
P. J. O’Rourke

If one more ‘journalist’ makes a cavalier statement about me and my band, I will personally or with my fans’ help, greet them at their home and discover just how much they believe in their freedom of speech.
Marilyn Manson

I became a journalist partly so that I wouldn’t ever have to rely on the press for my information.
Christopher Hitchens

I had rather be called a journalist than an artist.
H. G. Wells

And I wasn’t a journalist any more than I was a trained nurse.
May Sinclair
