Rest in Peace, Molly Ivins

Molly Ivins head shot“I have long been persuaded that the news media collectively will be sent to hell not for our sins of commission, but our sins of omission. The real scandal in the media is not bias, it is laziness.

Laziness and bad news judgment. Our failure is what we miss, what we fail to cover, what we let slip by, what we don’t give enough attention to. . . .”

— Molly Ivins, columnist, gadfly and social conscience, (1944-2007) 2005
