Don't become a mere recorder of facts, but try to penetrate the mystery of their origin.
I am turned into a sort of machine for observing facts and grinding out conclusions.
The most terrifying moment in my life was October 1962, during the Cuban Missile Crisis. I did not know all the facts - we have learned only recently how close we were to war - but I knew enough to make me tremble.
Facts are many, but the truth is one.
Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts.
Daniel Patrick Moynihan

Intelligent people tend to talk about the facts. They don't sit around and call each other names. That's what you can find on a third grade playground.
I personally think honestly disclosing rather than hiding one's subjective values makes for more honest and trustworthy journalism. But no journalism - from the most stylistically 'objective' to the most brazenly opinionated - has any real value unless it is grounded in facts, evidence, and verifiable data.
We must trust to nothing but facts: these are presented to us by nature and cannot deceive. We ought, in every instance, to submit our reasoning to the test of experiment, and never to search for truth but by the natural road of experiment and observation.
