Mr. Ed


“Who, what, where, when and why (or how) is the primal cliché and complacency of journalism: but I do not wish to appear to speak favorably of journalism. I have never yet seen a piece of journalism which conveyed more than the slightest fraction of what any even moderately reflective and sensitive person would mean and intend by those unattainable words. . . . 

Journalism is true in the sense that everything is true to the state of being and to what conditioned and produced it. . . . Journalism is not to be blamed for this, no more than a cow is to blamed for not being a horse.”

—James Agee (1909-1955), writer, journalist and film critic, 1941

• Editorial Comment: A horse is a horse, of course, of course.
