Truth Worth Telling by Scott Pelley

Editor’s note:  This is a book to pick and choose from.  Some stories I let go of quickly for various reasons and some stories I read twice.  As with his heroes, Edward Murrow, Walter Cronkite and Mike Wallace, we’ve a lot to learn from the ventures of those who were there for historical events and people.

 

Favorite excerpt:  I found poignance in the entire chapter titled, “To a Young Journalist” and especially these words:

 

“The principles of honest content have not changed in hundreds of years.  Whether you are writing on a stone tablet or a glass tablet, the audience must have accurate, evenhanded reporting”.
