Before Truman Capote, journalism and non-fiction weren’t taken very seriously.

More and more, journalism seems to have hopped out of Truth’s pocket and crept into another.

Internet journalism is not a world we know very well at all. It’s conducted more on the screen and less in bars, which makes it rather less useful for getting stories about people throwing up over one another, which is what one’s after.
– Ian Hislop
There’s a lot of hand-wringing going on about the death of journalism and particularly the death of investigative journalism. What I see is that there is more need than ever to have experienced information processors – people who can look through this mass of data.
– Heather Brooke
I’ve written for ‘The Times’ because they have valued what I do enough to pay me. The ‘New Statesman’ magazine also asked me to write an article, but they didn’t want to pay me anything. To me, that shows how much they value quality journalism.
As an undergraduate at Amherst College, I was devoted to Dickensian novels and antiestablishment journalism while marginally fulfilling premedical requirements.
– Harold E. Varmus
I don’t think that my kind of journalism has ever been universally popular. It’s lonely out here.
– Hunter S. Thompson

When Arianna Huffington founded ‘The Huffington Post’ in 2005, a whole new era of journalism began.
– Hubert Burda
I have been an outsider in journalism and in the academy, because I never fully belonged to any of them.
– Garry Wills
Journalism students need to understand it and need a solid background in the liberal arts, in sociology, economics, literature and language, because they won’t get it later on.
– Harrison Salisbury
As far as I’m concerned, it’s a damned shame that a field as potentially dynamic and vital as journalism should be overrun with dullards, bums, and hacks, hag-ridden with myopia, apathy, and complacence, and generally stuck in a bog of stagnant mediocrity.
Objective journalism is one of the main reasons that American politics has been allowed to be so corrupt for so long.
When I was 26 or 27, I gave up journalism. I came to England after my mom died, to let serendipity take its course. And I just found myself back in journalism again.
With the possible exception of things like box scores, race results, and stock market tabulations, there is no such thing as Objective Journalism. The phrase itself is a pompous contradiction in terms.
Journalism will kill you, but it will keep you alive while you’re at it.
– Horace Greeley
I don’t want to see the end of popular print journalism.
– Hugh Grant
I pine for a return to the type of old-school journalism and the tough newspapermen and women of the Thirties.
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
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
Journalism can never be silent: that is its greatest virtue and its greatest fault. It must speak, and speak immediately, while the echoes of wonder, the claims of triumph and the signs of horror are still in the air.

We don’t go into journalism to be popular. It is our job to seek the truth and put constant pressure on our leaders until we get answers.
I’ve already become a mastodon in print – I don’t see a consciousness for my kind of journalism.
I’ve always been kind of a mutt creatively. I started off in journalism, and I’ve actually done more police and procedural shows than I’ve ever done science fiction shows. I was on ‘Murder She Wrote,’ I was on ‘Walker, Texas Ranger,’ I was on ‘Jake and the Fat Man.’
– J. Michael Straczynski
In most daily journalism, you only fact-check something if it seems a little fishy.
– Ira Glass
Journalism is irrepressible. It can’t be taken away.
– Josh Fox
My only advice is, follow your dream and do whatever you like to do the most. I chose journalism because I wanted to be in the places where history was being made.
– Jorge Ramos
At Gallaudet, deafness isn’t an issue. You don’t even think about it. Students can pay attention to accounting or psychology or journalism. But when a deaf person goes to another college, no matter how supportive it is, that person doesn’t get the same access.
– I. King Jordan
There’s some irony in playing a journalist after some of the stuff that has been written about me, but it’s a great profession, particularly investigative journalism.
– James Nesbitt
We’ve seen how grassroots journalism by blogs has had an impact at various points politically, as ordinary people have amplified stories that were being ignored by the traditional press.
– Jimmy Wales
