Quote of the day, Dec. 19

Richard C. Hottelet, on war reporting

“It was not our job to inspire people, to educate, to move them. It was our job to tell them what was going on. We were accredited war correspondents. That was it. We were serious people at a serious job. We were out in the field, flying, on the front lines getting shot at—along with a 100,000 other people.”
