Quote of the day

“Perhaps one of the oldest descriptions of good journalism comes from the Bible itself. In the opening lines of the Gospel according to St. Luke, the writer explained that he had ‘carefully investigated everything from the beginning, [and] it seemed good also to me to write an orderly account for you…to know the certainty of the things you have been taught.’ So a first principle for journalists is to tell the story truthfully in such a way that others may obtain certain knowledge of events to which they were not personally a witness.”~Curtis R. Holsopple, "Mass Media in 2025"
