About Journalism

th-2“It may or may not be true that man’s great use for language is to conceal his thoughts; but I suppose that we should all agree to the somewhat analogous propisition that the one great use of newspapers is to suppress news”

G.K. Chesterton,  “The Lies of Journalism,”

Written long before cable TV  news networks and even before TV was invented.  I bet ‘ol GK would have some interesting insight into current events, eh?

Quote taken from one of my favorite books to pick up and thumb through, The Wisdom of Mr. Chesterton edited by Dave Armstrong.

Living between Aiken & Nashville, TN, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.
