Hunter S. Thompson said it

So much for Objective Journalism. Don’t bother to
look for it here -- not under any byline of mine;
or anyone else I can think of.

With the possible exception of things like box scores,
race results, and stock market tabulations,
there is no such thing as Objective Journalism.

The phrase itself is a pompous contradiction in terms.

From his book, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail, 1972 -- And 40 years later we have what we have.
