Patrick Hill Journalism 101 Dr. Tobin 3 May 2010 Gus Haynes and President Nixon The following is a present conversation between Gus Haynes, an editor at The Sun in Baltimore, and President Nixon, the former President of the United States and head of the Watergate scandal. President Nixon: You know Gus; recently I ran across a quote from Russell Baker that really defines what journalism is becoming. Gus Haynes: Really? Are you speaking of the “After all…what is a newspaperman” statement? I found many flaws with that statement. President Nixon: I believe there is no statement truer. Look at those “peepers” and “mischief makers” Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. They did nothing but snoop around and interrogate my associates, are they not patriotic. They accused the President of the United States of America of committing illegal activities. Gus Haynes: Mr. President with all due respect, journalists must remain independent. They must remain independent of economic status, race, ethnicity, religion, gender, and most of all politics. A journalist’s first loyalty to its citizens. President Nixon: I represented those citizens, the news organization have an obligation to me. It was unfair that those two reporters singled me out; it was irrelevant to investigate any further after Watergate. Gus Haynes: Sir, I understand you represent the people but you are still considered a citizen in a newspaper’s eyes. They were merely doing some investigative reporting which lead to some problems.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
