Modern Media: A Quint of Quotes

Fellow travelers,

Here is another “Quint of Quotes” from my collection.  These five somewhat related sayings are about the way news is reported and used today.  I hope you find them thought-provoking, or at least interesting, but please don’t fight over them!

“The news media has decided that the way to arrive at neutrality is to put two opposing voices together and let them yell at each other.” – Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales

“In my experience, the more I know about a subject, the less I’m impressed with related media coverage” – Howard Marks, investor

“Most of Washington punditry is private letters, written to other pundits, appearing in public space.” – Christopher Hitchens

“The truth is, most of us read the news to gain ammunition, not information.” – Bill Haslam, former governor of Tennessee

Whoever belittles his neighbor lacks sense,
            but a man of understanding remains silent.” – Proverbs 11:12

  1. I have noticed that some news hosts will ask their guests questions and then quickly shout or talk over their responses. Silence would make them appear to be an understanding news media! Interesting quotes, by the way.
