Merci Andrew Marr: Dans la bouche de l’ancien patron du service politique de la BBC qui a démissioné afin de « fondamentalement changer de vie » ( il n’a gardé qu’une émission dominicale ) ces quelques mots sur le métier de journaliste font du bien à lire…

“I think it’s really important that journalists remember we are marginal people. We’re the frame around other people’s achievements. Any culture in which journalists are central is a pretty rotten, decadent one, on the way down, so I won’t think I’ve achieved anything particularly substantial until I’ve created a brilliant book or painting or something . . . I would probably be happier as a second-rate painter than a so-called, first-rate celebrity.”
