I know more than you.

I work ten minutes a day.
I rule the universe.
I'm going to live forever.

A lie isn't a lie when it tells THE TRUTH.
THE NEWS HACK'S CREED, No. 3:
I've come to realize that the looseness of the journalistic life, the seeming laxity of the newsroom, is an illusion. Yes, there's informality and there's humor, but beneath the surface lies something deadly serious. It is a code. Sometimes the code is not even written down, but it is deeply believed in. And, when violated, it is enforced with tribal ferocity.

THE NEWS HACK'S CREED, No. 4:
News isn't news when we don't report it.
