Quote from Richard Salant,

"If newsmen do not tell the truth as they see it because it might make waves,
or if their bosses decide something should or should not be broadcast
because of Washington or Main Street consequences,
we have dishonored ourselves and we have lost the First Amendment by default."


Richard Salant (more quotes by Richard Salant or books by/about Richard Salant)

(1914-1993) former President of CBS News
