Quote To Ponder ~Sebastian Junger

IMG_0109The point of journalism is the truth. The point of journalism is not to improve society. There are things, there are facts, there are truths that actually feel regressive, but it doesn’t matter, because the point of journalism isn’t to make everything better. It’s to give people accurate information about how things are.” ~Sebastian Junger (American Journalist) on his interview with Tim Ferris, Tools of Titans, page 421.

Editor Note: Its a shame that this has become the exception, rather than the rule. There was a time when a journalist would never fall to the temptation of making his opinion known, when editorializing was a completely different form of writing.
