The Journalician Club – Today’s Quote

The Journalician Club – Today’s Quote

You turn on the TV, and you see very bland interviews. Journalists in the United States are very cozy with power, very close to those in power. They laugh with them. They go to the [White House] correspondents’ dinner with them. They have lunch together. They marry each other. They’re way too close to each other. I think as journalists we have to keep our distance from power… I’m not seeing those correspondents that would question those in power. It’s like a club. We are not asking the tough questions.
