In my nearly forty years at The Salt Lake Tribune I've known hundreds of journalists. They are the kind of people who place a found dollar bill on the edge of a cubicle and it will still there three days later. My colleagues are universally honest and conscientious about getting the facts straight. Likewise, while my cartoonist peers employ exaggeration and hyperbole to express their opinions, I don't know a single one of them, no matter their politics, who would knowingly, deliberately and repeatedly lie.
These are not the enemies of the people you're looking for.
