William Randolph Hearst said this in 1897. He said to photographer Frederic Remington who was in Cuba, shortly before the onset of the Spanish - American War.
the picture speaks words as much as the person watching it reads.
Robert E. Lee, when he had to surrender the Civil War to Ulysses S. Grant, April 9 , 1865. --- It was from a quote by Robert E. Lee in his final battle leading a… Confederate Army. Told that there was no way to fight their way out of Appomattox, he reportedly said, "Then there is nothing left for me to do but to go and see General Grant and I would rather die a thousand deaths." Shortly thereafter, he wrote to Grant and the two met at a nearby residence, where Lee surrendered his forces. This marked the effective end of the US Civil War.

It was said back in the days before computers and hi-technology, when photos were extremely difficult to fake (touch up). And what it meant was; writers CAN write anything (tr…ue or not!), but a picture (photograph) cannot lie. Example: If a writer (any person) wrote a paragraph or page on, for example, the M60 Main Battle Tank, stating that it was used in the Vietnam War (which has already been done by the way), and then submits a photograph to go with the story...if that pictured tank has 5 support rollers, a rounded front slope (tip of the bow), a rounded turret, a flash suppresser at the gun's muzzle, and the bore evacuator near the muzzle actually touching the flash suppresser, then the writer was incorrect and the picture is mis-titled...that is an M48 Patton tank...which was used in the Vietnam War. The M60 MBT was not used in the Vietnam War.
