Speaking truth to power ought to be the duty of journalism

Published on Feb 6, 2018

In studio interview on George & Gayatri Galloway on their RT program, Sputnik Orbiting the World. "Speaking truth to power ought to be the duty of journalism but it is not. Speaking the power's "truth" is the way to get and keep the gig in today's media – and if you do so, you’ll be richly rewarded with money and flattery. One of our frequent guests, Patrick Cockburn, had a great journalist father, Claud Cockburn, who said that the relationship of the journalist to power should be that of the dog to the lamp-post. Nothing is true, he'd say, until it has been officially denied. Fortunately, every now and then a journalist emerges who goes where few dare, who speaks what few will speak, without fear or favor. One such journalist is Eva Bartlett, so we invited her into the Sputnik studio to speak truth to power." Related links: Related post:
