On Wednesday, we shared an image of a quote about journalism that went onto a wall at the Miami Herald. If you’ve ever been in a newsroom, you’ve probably seen one or two. We wanted to see more and asked people to send us photos of their own newsroom quotes.
And boy did they. We ask for a glimpse into the journalism life every now and then, and this is easily the biggest and best response so far. Thank you. Here you’ll find images from newsrooms around the country (and a few outside the country,) as well as a Storify of great quotes about journalism shared on our Facebook wall.
This first one came from Neil Godbout, managing editor of the Prince George Citizen in British Columbia, “With the best use of the word ‘rascality’ ever….”
The Baltimore Sun’s Justin George shared an image with a few quotes:
Bill Gray, with the Center for Public Integrity, sent several images from a wall of quotes that he says he looks at often. Here’s one:
