Newspaper Copy
This is the age of the reporter — the age of news, not views. We are influencing our public through the presentation of facts; and the gathering, the assembling and the presentation of these facts is the work of the reporter. There are two ideals of news. The first is to give the news colorless, the absolute truth. The second is to take the best attitude for the perpetuation of our democracy.
The English Of The Newspapers
Of the three generally recognized qualities of good style — clarity, force and grace—it is the last and the last alone in which critics of newspaper English find their material.
Writer's Viewpoint
The three notes of modern reporting are clarity, terseness, objectivity. The news writer of today aims to tell a story that shall be absolutely intelligible, even to minds below the average—since everybody reads; to economize space to the last degree, and to keep himself, his prejudices, preferences, opinions, out of the story altogether.
Newspaper Writing - The Importance Of Accuracy
The surest guarantee for right-doing in journalism is contained in the teaching that right is always right and that it must be done for its own sake. This is the great basic truth to be taught the students of schools of journalism and impressed upon the minds of all newspaper workers.
