We don't go into journalism to be popular. It is our job to seek the truth and put constant pressure on our leaders until we get answers.
Everyone with a cell phone thinks they're a photographer. Everyone with a laptop thinks they're a journalist. But they have no training, and they have no idea of what we keep to in terms of standards, as in what's far out and what's reality. And they have no dedication to truth.

The day Dick Cheney is going to run for president, I'll kill myself. All we need is one more liar.
