Zitat von Helen Thomas

Man wird kein Journalist um berühmt zu werden. Unser Job ist es, die Wahrheit zu suchen und Druck auf unsere Anführer auszuüben, bis wir Antworten bekommen.

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.

Zitat von Helen Thomas

The presidency awed me, but presidents do not. Perhaps I have always expected too much of them, but I believe that when they reach the highest office in the land, they should live up to the greatest honor that can come to a person in American political life. Some have stood the test better than others.

Zitat von Helen Thomas

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.
