Environmental concern is now firmly embedded in public life: in education, medicine and law; in journalism, literature and art.
Journalism is literature in a hurry.
My cure for writer's block is to step away from the thing I'm stuck on, usually a novel, and write something totally different. Besides fiction, I write poetry, screenplays, essays and journalism. It's usually not the writing itself that I'm stuck on, but thing I'm trying to write. So I often have four or five things going at once.
The difference between literature and journalism is that journalism is unreadable and literature is not read.
Journalism without a moral position is impossible. Every journalist is a moralist. It's absolutely unavoidable.
The lowest form of popular culture - lack of information, misinformation, disinformation and a contempt for the truth or the reality of most people's lives - has overrun real journalism.
I think there's always satisfaction that comes from digging in and telling a story and being on the front line and writing about it. I think there's a venue available if you look. Even print journalism is in good shape in areas.
I've already become a mastodon in print - I don't see a consciousness for my kind of journalism.
Hunter S. Thompson
For me, I used to be shy towards journalism because it wasn't poetry. And then I realized that the events that I covered in essays that became journalism were actually great because they inspired me, and they became my muse.
I love great journalism. I appreciate it. I love a good, you know, I love good news stories. I love great books. I love great articles. I appreciate them so much, and they've been part of my education as a woman.

P. J. O'Rourke
I believe that music is another form of news. Music is another form of journalism to me so I have to cover all the areas with my album.
I never, ever have seen media this way. It's almost indescribable. Making up stories, refusing to run real stories. It's making themselves look like utter fools. There's no journalism, there is no media. There's pure, full-fledged advocacy here.
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

A long life in journalism convinced me many presidents ago that there should be a large air space between a journalist and the head of a state.
