«There is, in fact, no contradiction between a reporter's patriotism and a reporter's professionalism. Journalists perform the highest act of patriotism and operate on the highest levels of professionalism when they subject all government handouts and pronouncements to the sunlight of honest and truthful inquiry – and then fearlessly report the results. That is their job, during times of peace or war.»
