“My guiding principles in journalism are the usual ones. I believe in getting it right, being fair, shining lights on things that are hidden when they affect the public good, etc. But I have developed another guiding principle in the way I do this craft.
My readers know more than I do. And if we can all take advantage of that, in the best sense of the expression, we will all be better informed.”
— Dan Gillmor, former Merc columnist, author We Media, founder, Grassroots Media
