Murrow Quotes

For Tom Trowbridge

“Just once in a while let us exalt the importance of ideas and information.”
“We cannot make good news out of bad practice.”
“We're going to go with this story. Because the terror is right here in this room.”
“Difficulty is the excuse history never accepts.”
“Our major obligation is not to mistake slogans for solutions.”
“We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home.”
“No one can terrorize a whole nation, unless we are all his accomplices.”
“We are in the same tent as the clowns and the freaks-that's show business.”
“Anyone who isn't confused really doesn't understand the situation.”
“If we were to do the Second Coming of Christ in color for a full hour, there would be a considerable number of stations which would decline to carry it on the grounds that a Western or a quiz show would be more profitable.”
"We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty.”

I hold you in the highest regard.

Rogi A. Riverstone
