Quotables

Hunter S. Thompson on TV (e.g., emerging media of the 80s)

“The TV business is uglier than most things. It is normally perceived as some kind of cruel and shallow money trench through the heart of the journalism industry, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free and good men die like dogs, for no good reason.

Which is more or less true. For the most part, they are dirty little animals with huge brains and no pulse.”

-Hunter S. Thompson, “Generation of Swine: Tales of Shame and Degradation in the ’80s” (New York: Summit Books, 1988).
