Public Officials

Famous quotes containing the words public and/or officials:

    That the public can grow accustomed to any face is proved by the increasing prevalence of Keith’s ruined physiognomy on TV documentaries and chat shows, as familiar and homely a horror as Grandpa in The Munsters.
    Philip Norman, British author, journalist. The Life and Good Times of the Rolling Stones, introduction (1989)

    The conflict between the men who make and the men who report the news is as old as time. News may be true, but it is not truth, and reporters and officials seldom see it the same way.... In the old days, the reporters or couriers of bad news were often put to the gallows; now they are given the Pulitzer Prize, but the conflict goes on.
    James Reston (b. 1909)
