Neither a trade nor a profession

The late, great Hunter S. Thompson on the limits of objective journalism:

"Objective journalism is one of the main reasons that American politics has been allowed to be so corrupt for so long," Thompson told interviewers in a characteristic pronouncement on both institutions.

"You can't be objective about Nixon," he said. "How can you be objective about Clinton?"

If I am reading this article correctly, Hunter S. Thompson's family was gathered around his body, still in the kitchen, holding an instant wake, toasting him with chivas, just hours after he killed himself.
