Michael Hastings Quotes

"Janet Malcolm had famously described journalism as the art of seduction and betrayal. Any reporter who didnt see journalism as "morally indefensible" was either "too stupid" or "too full of himself," she wrote. I disagreed. Without shutting the door on the possibility that I was both stupid and full of myself, Id never bought into the seduction and betrayal conceit. At most, journalism - particularly when writing about media-hungry public figures - was like the seduction of a prostitute. The relationship was transactional. They werent talking to me because they liked me or because I impressed them; they were talking to me because they wanted the cover of Rolling Stone."
