Just the Facts, M'am


“It has become fashionable nowadays to speak of the subjectivity or the relativity of truth. I find such talk ridiculous at best. . . .

“There are facts. There is a world in which things happen and the journalist’s job is to figure out what those things are. Anything less, is giving up on the most important task around – separating truth from illusion, truth from fantasy, truth from wishful thinking.”
