“Nothing is more intolerable than to have admit to yourself your own errors.”
Ludwig van Beethoven
Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72 by Hunter S. Thompson
“So much for Objective Journalism. Don't bother to look for it here--not under any byline of mine; or anyone else I can think of. With the possible exception of things like box scores, race results, and stock market tabulations, there is no such thing as Objective Journalism. The phrase itself is a pompous contradiction in terms.”
Hunter S. Thompson
