“Old journalists never die, they just get de-pressed”

“Old soldiers never die—they just fade away” is an old saying that was popularized by General Douglas MacArthur (1880-1964) in his farewell address to Congress on April 19, 1951. Many parodies of the saying have been made.
       
“Old journalists never die, they just get de-pressed” is a variation about journalists that has been cited in print since at least 1991.
