Whether you're a newspaper journalist, a lawyer, a doctor. You have to organize your thoughts.
A good journalist is not the one that writes what people say, but the one that writes what he is supposed to write.
As a journalist, I try to avoid talking to American diplomats, because I am stunned again and again by just how little grasp they have of what people are really feeling in a country. Especially CIA guys. Maybe they're just really good at playing stupid, but I don't think so.

J. Anthony Lukas
