"Put it before them briefly so they will read it, clearly so they will appreciate it, picturesquely so they will remember it and, above all, accurately so they will be guided by its light."

--Joseph Pulitzer

"Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter"

--Thomas Jefferson

"We are faithful to our profession in telling the truth. That's the only faith to which journalists need adhere."

--Walter Cronkite

"Where the press is free and every man able to read, all is safe."

--Thomas Jefferson

"I believe that the journalism which succeeds the best - and best deserves success - fears God and honors Man; is stoutly independent, unmoved by pride of opinion or greed of power, constructive, tolerant but never careless, self-controlled, patient, always respectful of its readers but always unafraid, is quickly at injustice; is unswayed by the appeal of privilege or the clamor of the mob." --- Walter Williams, Former Dean of the University of Missouri School of Journalism.
