Speculation is only a word covering the making of money out of the manipulation of prices, instead of supplying goods and services.
Yes, Barack Obama had his clashes with the press. I witnessed those first-hand covering the second term of his administration. But we did not have Barack Obama on almost a weekly basis referring to the press as the enemy of the people and accusing reporters of treason and calling legitimate stories fake news.
When I was 23, 24, I started covering hedge funds – a lot of this was luck – when no one else did. This was before hedge funds were the prettiest girl in school: this was pre-nose job and treadmill for hedge funds, when nobody talked to them – back then, it was just all about insurance companies and money managers.
Covering the civil-rights movement was a mind- and eye-opener for me. Houston was a segregated society, as was Texas as a whole – some of it by law, a lot of it by fear and tradition. But there was no violence where I lived, and if there was hate, it was either concealed from me or I just didn’t recognize it.
Truly, if you can’t cover a five-car pile-up on Route 128, you should not be covering a presidential campaign.
Newspapers are not free and they never have been. They can appear to be so, but someone, somewhere is covering the costs whether that is through advertising, a patron‘s largesse or a license fee. Advertising is no longer subsidising the industry and so the cost must fall somewhere – why not on the people who use it?
The insurance companies aren’t covering that. Should Monsanto be liable for these losses? Should the state government? Who’s going to cover the losses? The fact is, here’s an industry with no long-term liability in place.

Covering the NBA is about covering people. I think that’s why it’s sometimes compared to a reality show – because you actually get the chance to know the characters, not just the teams.
It’s important to stay a human, to be a journalist, to be a human covering the stories and trying as best as I can to put myself in their shoes, to be respectful, to just listen.
Covering a Super Bowl is actually one of the easiest things we do because our most experienced people are there. We’ll have 25,000 feet of film and there’s no way you’re going to miss anything.
As a species, taking all in all, we are still too young, too juvenile, to be trusted. We have spread across the face of the earth in just a few thousand years, no time at all as evolution clocks time, covering all livable parts of the planet, endangering other forms of life, and now threatening ourselves.
As someone who’s been covering presidential campaigns since the 1950s, I have no delusions about political reporting. Candidates bargaining access to get the kind of news coverage they want is nothing new.

I loved covering presidential politics – not so much because of the candidates but because of the people it allowed me to talk to.

Supramolecular chemistry is the chemistry of the intermolecular bond, covering the structures and functions of the entities formed by association of two or more chemical species.

I love myself the way I am, but people will always message me about other people with vitiligo who cover their skin. ‘Winnie Harlow, you need to tell them that they need to love themselves the way they are and stop covering their skin!’ No! If that’s what makes them comfortable and what makes them happy, let them be.
The mainstream press and television do a very soft job of covering the press, either as corporate entities or as news organizations.
I think the media makes it tough to play in New York. There are so many papers and TV channels covering the Knicks and the expectations for the Knicks are so high.
A human being has so many skins inside, covering the depths of the heart. We know so many things, but we don’t know ourselves! Why, thirty or forty skins or hides, as thick and hard as an ox‘s or bear’s, cover the soul. Go into your own ground and learn to know yourself there.
If you go back to 2001, the market had two violent short covering rallies then, although I know the market didn’t officially get going until March 2003.

Back in August 2002, I was hired as a reporter for a website covering New Jersey politics, then still a pretty novel concept. I was 22 years old, not from the state, and thoroughly inexperienced.
In campaign reporting more than any other kind of press coverage, reporters aren’t just covering a story, they’re a part of it – influencing outcomes, setting expectations, framing candidates – and despite what they tell themselves, it’s impossible to both be a part of the action and report on it objectively.
I worked in Ann Arbor for two years, covering Michigan football and basketball in the early 1990s.

In my case, I was covering politics in Texas as a newspaper man in the 1960’s.
The point is, the political reporters are the ones who no longer understand the ritual they are covering. They keep searching for political meanings in the tepid events when a convention is now essentially a human drama and only that.
With every story that TV covers, somebody – some corporation, some shareholders – are making money. That’s true whether covering Libya, Iraq, the tsunami in Japan, Osama bin Laden, whatever story there is. That day, the shareholders are making money off it. Every newspaper that’s sold, somebody’s making a dime.

Being homeschooled for half of my life allowed me to choose my own curriculum and find things I really enjoy, and that’s kind of inspired me. I’ve always been intrigued in or interested in the topics I’ve been covering.
A journalist covering politics, most of us are aware of the necessity to try to be sure we’re unbiased in our reporting. That’s one of the fundamentals of good journalism.
We all have insecurities, but some of us are better at covering them up.
We all have our likes and our dislikes. But… when we’re doing news – when we’re doing the front-page news, not the back page, not the op-ed pages, but when we’re doing the daily news, covering politics – it is our duty to be sure that we do not permit our prejudices to show. That is simply basic journalism.
I absolutely consider fashion a form of art. Of course, there is some fashion that is not art at all – it’s utilitarian, made for the purpose of covering up. And there are a lot of people out there who put a lot of effort into looking awful. But there are also people putting the same amount of energy into making bad art.
It’s almost impossible to explain how little the NBA amounted to when I started covering it in 1963. It wasn’t fair to call it bush, although everybody did. It was simply small – only nine teams – and insignificant.
I think that, in addition of the intersection of media and technology, there has also been an intersection between technology and finance, which is something I find a little closer to home, seeing as I spend so much time covering Wall Street banks.

When I was covering games, and this is back in the ’60s, you’d go into the manager’s office. I can still visualize Earl Weaver from the Baltimore Orioles. I can just see Earl now in his underwear… with a beer in one hand and a cigarette in the other, holding court. And that was the way it was done then.
I see so, so many novels written by people who are obviously short story writers. What they end up doing, it’s going the full distance, covering three hundred pages or so, but they do it by just writing five or six long stories, and weaving them together, making them interdependent.
The day after my mom died I fly back to California and spend the three weeks before the California primary making arrangements for her cremation, planning and getting the house ready for a memorial service and covering political rallies in Southern California. The normalcy of work helps.

The White House used to belong to the American people. At least that’s what I learned from history books and from covering every president starting with John F. Kennedy.
One of the unique things about covering politics in America is that I’ve gotten to see a lot of corners of this country that I never would’ve gotten to see. It turns out that there are a lot of really beautiful places in corners of America you wouldn’t necessarily expect.

The fact of the matter is, particularly when covering a campaign, which is a very high-speed story, it’s incredibly unusual for the reporter to be in the same place as the dateline when the story is filed.

When I was trained as a journalist, as a race-relations reporter in Nashville covering the end of the civil-rights movement, we were strictly forbidden to use the first-person pronoun.
