Quotes

"I am sick and tired of being prosecuted all the time for the truth I tell" - Rafael Marques , Angolan investigative journalist
...Some say we don't properly enforce the laws. Others say their whole basis is misconceived. Something has to change. "As defeat is quietly admitted in the war on drugs in one country after another, UK policy is becoming damagingly out of touch. Drug abuse in Britain is a big and expensive problem... The issue is not whether or not drug abuse is harmful. It is how best to minimise the harm it causes... "If the press doesn't finish off your career, then your political opponents, usually hypocritically, will use the supposedly maverick suggestion as a golden opportunity to smear and discredit you.""
...So I was astonished to read, courtesy of the Daily Mail, that Whittingdale believes the BBC licence fee is "worse than the poll tax". "I think most people, almost everybody, accepts that the licence fee as it currently stands need some tweaking to sort out anomalies. People's viewing habits have changed and it needs to reflect that. That's a very simple change and I think people see that. "It's actually worse than a poll tax because under the poll tax, if you were on a very low income, you would get a considerable subsidy. The BBC licence fee has no means-tested element whatsoever; it doesn't matter how poor you are, you pay £145.50 and go to prison if you don't pay it.""
...protested, the newspaper had failed an important test: it was not permitting me to do my job the way I had been doing it for almost two decades. "Readers of the Sun-Times need to be able to trust the paper. They need to know a wall exists between owners and the newsroom to preserve the integrity of what is published. A breach in that wall exists at the Sun-Times. It's had a chilling effect in the newsroom. While I don't speak for my colleagues, I'm aware that many share my concern. I'm convinced this newspaper no longer has the backs of reporters like me."
