Better and Smarter

A Noble Calling

“An honest and intelligent journalism is one of the most potent instruments of constructive service. For, apart from the abstractions of theorists, it is easy to see that education is not a complex matter of academic tools and procedures, but a simple matter of making the members of a community better and smarter. On the basis of this concept, journalism becomes a great educational agency. Journalistic media are more than purveyors of news and comment; they are agencies having policies of their own, responsibilities of far-reaching importance, and worthy missions of great significance.”

—George Fox Mott, journalism professor, 1940
