Oscar Wilde – Much to be said of journalism

Share this quote:
Oscar WildeThere is much to be said in favour of modern journalism. By giving us the opinions of the uneducated it keeps us in touch with the ignorance of the community. By carefully chronicling the current events of contemporary life it shows us of what very little importance such events really are. By invariably discussing the unnecessary it makes us understand what things are requisite for culture, and what are not.

Oscar Wilde   (1854-1900)
