Quote of the day, Oct. 8

Peter Jennings, on journalism

“There are a lot of people who think our job is to reassure the public every night that their home, their community and their nation is safe. I don’t subscribe to that at all. I subscribe to leaving people with essentially—sorry it’s a cliche—a rough draft of history. Some days it’s reassuring, some days it’s absolutely destructive.”
