  Seek truth from facts - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Seek truth from facts (Chinese: 实事求是, pinyin: shí shì qiú shì) is a slogan in the People's Republic of China referring to pragmatism.
The phrase means to look for economic and political solutions that have practical application rather than economic and political solutions based on political ideology (such as those of Mao Zedong).
Seek Truth from Facts was originally a slogan promoted by Mao.

South calls truth a great stronghold, "barred and fortified by God and Nature ; and diligence is properly the understanding's laying siege to it, so that, as in a kind of warfare, it must be perpetually upon the watch, observing all the avenues and passes to it, and accordingly make its approaches.

It is true, that the life of a journalist is a wonderfully independent opportunity to probe your interests, to seek truth from facts, and to engage others in what you have learned and try to get them to share your curiosity through the quality of your reporting and writing.
