Report me and my cause aright
  To the unsatisfied.
      - William Shakespeare

But I'll report it
  Where senators shall mingle tears with smiles;
    Where great patricians shall attend and shrug,
      I' th' end admire; where ladies shall be frighted,
        And, gladly quaked, hear more; where the dull tribunes,
          That with the fusty plebeians hate thine honors,
            Shall say against their hearts, 'We thank the gods
              Our Rome hath such a soldier.'
      - William Shakespeare, Coriolanus
         (Cominius at I, ix)

Horatio, I am dead;
  Thou livest; report me and my cause aright

The newspapers! Sir, they are the most villanous--licentious--abominable--infernal--not that I ever read them--no--I make it a rule never to look into a newspaper.
      - Richard Brinsley Sheridan, The Critic
         (act I, sc. 1)

Trade hardly deems the busy day begun
  Till his keen eye along the sheet has run;
    The blooming daughter throws her needle by,
      And reads her schoolmate's marriage with a sigh;
        While the grave mother puts her glasses on,
          And gives a tear to some old crony gone.
            The preacher, too, his Sunday theme lays down
              To know what last new folly fills the town;
                Lively or sad, life's meanest, mightiest things,
                  The fate of fighting cocks, or fighting kings.
      - Charles Sprague

An editor is one who separates the wheat from the chaff and prints the chaff.

        motto of the Salem Register, in Wm. W. Story's "Life of Joseph Story". vol. I, ch. VI

The thorn in the cushion of the editorial chair.

      - Theodore Tilton

Get your facts first, and then you can distort 'em as much as please.
      - Mark Twain (pseudonym of Samuel Langhorne Clemens),
        interview with Rudyard Kipling, in "From Sea to Sea"
         (epistle 37)

Its failings notwithstanding, there is much to be said in favor of journalism in that by giving us the opinion of the uneducated, it keeps us in touch with the ignorance of the community.
