Al-Allaamah Muqbil bin Haadi (rahimahullaah) said:
In the majority of cases the journalists are capricious; so they praise the rulers in order to be given wealth. And it may be that they accept the realities, whilst launching attacks against the people of knowledge (i.e. the scholars). Therefore, a person should be principled and truthful, and he should not care who opposes him. But if he is capricious, then the people will not be at ease with his newspaper because it becomes that of lies and (also) its articles.
