Media Quotes A-Z by Author Media Quotes A-Z by Author

What happens in the West is that there is no border between state interest and commercial interest. The edges of the state, as a result of privatization, are fuzzed and blurred out into the edges of companies. So, when you look at how The Guardian behaves, or how The New York Times behaves, it is part of that mesh of corporate and state interests seamlessly blurring into each other.
Julian Assange - Western - Media - Companies - Government - Newspapers

It really is my opinion that media in general are so bad that we have to question whether the world wouldn't be better off without them altogether. They are so distortive to how the world actually is that the result is.. we see wars, and we see corrupt governments continue on.
Julian Assange - Media - Lies - Opinions - Bad - Geopolitics - War - Corrupt

One of the hopeful things that I’ve discovered is that nearly every war that has started in the past 50 years has been a result of media lies. The media could've stopped it if they had searched deep enough; if they hadn't reprinted government propaganda they could've stopped it.
Julian Assange - Media - Lies - Government - Propaganda - War


I have never watched property programmes. I watch Property Ladder, because I feel it’s very rude for a director to work very hard on a programme and you can’t be bothered to even watch it. So I do watch it, but I have to turn away when I’m on screen. It’s quite unpleasant seeing myself up there.
Sarah Beeny - Real Estate - Media - Hard Work


We have voluntarily agreed to let an invisible government sift the data and high-spot the outstanding issues so that our field of choice shall be narrowed to practical proportions. From our leaders and the media they use to reach the public, we accept the evidence and the demarcation of issues bearing upon public questions; from some ethical teacher, be it a minister, a favorite essayist, or merely prevailing opinion, we accept a standardized code of social conduct to which we conform most of the time.
Edward Bernays - Government - Leaders - Ethics - Media - Social - Teacher

The problem is the average person isn’t tuned in to lifelong learning, or going to seminars and so forth. If the information is not on television, and it’s not in the movies they watch, and it’s not in the few books that they buy, they don’t get it.
Jack Canfield - Learning - Improvement - Problems - Media - Books

They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls. They got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying. Lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests.
George Carlin - America - Stupid - Big Business - Control - Politicians - Media - Congress - News - Lobby - Billions - Greed

They’ll get it all from you sooner or later 'cause they own this f**kin' place. It’s a big club and you ain't in it. You and I are not in the big club. By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table is tilted, folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. Good, honest, hard-working people: white collar, blue collar, it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on.
George Carlin - Media - Greed - Media - Belief - Thinking - Working Class - Middle Class

You know, in this business, you don't have any control over what the press says and how they portray things. And that's their prerogative. But I think anybody who looks at it objectively has trouble making the case that somehow this is a bad economy.
Dick Cheney - Politicians - Media - Economy - Control

The current perception I get from the evening news is that the world is dominated by human failure, crime, catastrophe, corruption, and tragedy. We are all tuning in to see how the human mind is evolving, but the media keeps hammering home the opposite, that the human mind is mired in darkness and folly.
Deepak Chopra - Media
- Failure - Negative

I stand by this man (President George W. Bush). I stand by this man because he stands for things. Not only for things, he stands on things. Things like aircraft carriers and rubble and recently flooded city squares. And that sends a strong message, that no matter what happens to America, she will always rebound.. with the most powerfully staged photo ops in the world.
Stephen Colbert - Funny - President - Politicians - America - Strength - Media - Crisis

If you've got a big mouth and you're controversial, you're going to get attention.
Simon Cowell - Media - Controversy

I can't think of one person who is on TV who isn't vain. It's the nature of the beast. If you are on TV then you have a vanity, for sure. Just admit it! Why not?
Simon Cowell - Truth - Media - Television - Vain

I don't take myself seriously all the time; I have to do quirky things, such as helping football teams, moving the ball away from McAllister's foot, getting into The Sun and The Star - because, you know, I like sensationalism, it's a part of what I do.
Uri Geller - Marketing
- Help - Media

Remarks such as ‘great Australian’, ‘larger than life’ are sometimes used where they are not appropriate. But in the case of Kerry Packer both of those descriptions are entirely appropriate. He was a great Australian, he was a larger than life character and in so many ways he left his mark on the Australian community over a very long career in business, particularly in the media and also that other great passion of his, Australian sport
John Howard - Media - Passions - Business
- Australia

To my mind, you cannot speak about the need for leadership within our communities without being prepared to take on responsibility yourself. It’s not enough to point the finger at those who have let us down and to expect others to come forward and fix our problems. Nor can anyone afford to call themselves a leader unless they truly have the interests of our community at heart. Too many people like to think they are leaders and too many are identified by the media as leaders who are not really leaders at all.
Jackie Huggins - Leadership - Responsibility - Problems - Media

I make it a point not to buy certain magazines, not because I am against tabloids or things like that, but I want to fill my mind with valid issues in the world.
Angelina Jolie - Media - Values - World - Tabloid

I do ask every publisher, every editor, and every newsman in the nation to reexamine his own standards, and to recognize the nature of our country's peril. In time of war, the government and the press have customarily joined in an effort based largely on self-discipline, to prevent unauthorized disclosures to the enemy. In time of "clear and present danger," the courts have held that even the privileged rights of the First Amendment must yield to the public's need for national security.
John F. Kennedy - USA - War - Government - Danger - Enemy - Security - Press - First Amendment - News - Media - Journalism - JFK Speech

Time Magazine has to change its name to God Weekly. This week, Mary is on the cover again. In the last two years, Time has put out: "The Secrets of the Nativity", "The God Gene", "Faith, God and the Oval Office", "The Bible and the Apocalypse", "Who Was Moses?", "What Jesus Saw", "Why Did Jesus Have to Die?", "Jesus in 2000." If Jesus gets any more free press, he's going to start thinking he's Paris Hilton. Look, I understand we have a lot of Christians in this nation, but how about a little equal time? "Vishnu to Ganesh: Drop Dead". And "Is There No Pleasing Zeus?"
Bill Maher - Jesus -

If you're a careerist, thinking only to advance your media career, then I don't really want to work with you.
Michael Moore - Career - Media


The self-anointed media elite among us believe, somewhat self-servingly, that not only the act, or process of making a profit is positively sinister, but also that the very desire to do so is.
Lachlan Murdoch - Media - Belief - Profits
- Criticism

There is no room for dictating taste in the diverse and dynamic world of media. To limit taste only limits the role we play for people of all kinds.
Lachlan Murdoch - Media - Consumer - Products
- Diversity

Intelligent media companies strive to provide both intellectual and comedy programs, groundbreaking and reflective articles, art house and popular movies. Not to be open minded in providing a full range of quality media would be a failure to serve the breadth and depth of the communities we live in.
Lachlan Murdoch - Media - Culture - Products
- Failure - Intelligent - Diversity

The profit motive is not only fundamental to our ability to reward shareholders and pay employees; it's fundamental to excellent journalism. Far from corrupting the craft, profits enhance it. Expansion drives diversity and diversity protects and strengthens our craft.
Lachlan Murdoch - Growth - Journalism - Media
- Profits - Employee - Stocks - Strength - Diversity

The industry is littered with self-styled purists who believe the business of media.. the requirement to make a profit.. somehow corrupts the craft.
Lachlan Murdoch - Business - Media - Belief
- Profits

I have been privileged to grow up retaining the love of good journalism, the craft, while learning its business: the dollars and cents.
I have learnt that they are not mutually exclusive but integrally self-reliant. Each dependent on the other.
Lachlan Murdoch - Journalism - Business - Media
- Profits - Money - Learning

There is so much media now with the Internet and people, and so easy and so cheap to start a newspaper or start a magazine, there’s just millions of voices and people want to be heard.
Rupert Murdoch - Internet - Technology - Media


Most newspaper companies still have their heads in the sand, but other media companies are aggressive.
Rupert Murdoch - Change - Companies - Media
- Growth

News.. communicating news and ideas, I guess.. is my passion. And giving people alternatives so that they have two papers to read and alternative television channels.
Rupert Murdoch - Media - Ideas - Passion

As with all politically lead governments, foreign investment is the slowest in the media section. Politicians are somewhat paranoid about the media but we still think it’s worthwhile.
Rupert Murdoch - Change - Media - Government - Competition - Investments

Size and synergies between the different segments of the company matter. As far as we are concerned, the Internet is broadening our opportunity, as well as for other big media companies with huge resources in sports, entertainment and news. There's just more opportunity.
Rupert Murdoch - Media - Internet - Company - Opportunity


We're starting with our own carbon footprint. Not nothing. But much of what we're doing is already, or soon will be, little more than the standard way of doing business. We can do something that's unique, different from just any other company. We can set an example, and we can reach our audiences. Our audience's carbon footprint is 10,000 times bigger than ours. That's the carbon footprint we want to conquer.
Rupert Murdoch - Carbon - Responsibility - Business - Media - Influential - Encouragement - Companies

Imagine if we succeed in inspiring our audiences to reduce their own impacts on climate change by just one percent. That would be like turning the State of California off for almost two months.
Rupert Murdoch - Climate Change - Media - Influential - Imagination - Inspirational - Success

News Corporation, today, reaches people at home and at work... when they're thinking... when they're laughing... and when they are making choices that have enormous impact.
The unique potential.. and duty.. of a media company are to help its audiences connect to the issues that define our time.
Rupert Murdoch - Responsibility - Media - Influential - Encouragement - Companies - Thinking - Help


We're not a manufacturer, or an airline, but we do use energy. Printing and publishing newspapers, producing films, broadcasting television signals, operating 24-hour newsrooms. It all adds carbon to the atmosphere.
Rupert Murdoch - Climate Change - Responsibility - Carbon - Media - Companies - News

Climate change and energy use are global problems. News Corp is a global company. Our operations affect the environment all over the world.
Rupert Murdoch - Climate Change - Responsibility - Global Warming - Media - World - Problems - Environmental


My take on the whole dot-com bubble was that a lot of people who wanted to make a lot of money got too excited and hyped up the commercial aspects of the Internet prematurely. I think the vision of the Internet as a democratizing medium.. as everyone's printing press.. is real. We got distracted from that by the mass hallucinations of the bubble.
Craig Newmark - Greed - Internet - Money - Media

I’m not a member of the permanent political establishment. And I’ve learned quickly these past few days that if you’re not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone. But here’s a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I’m not going to Washington to seek their good opinion. I’m going to Washington to serve the people of this country.
Sarah Palin -

I knew very little about television, I knew very little about cable, cable programming. But my instincts were right.
Sumner Redstone - Media - Instinct

At the time we acquired Viacom, everyone said I had overpaid. But even at today's depressed prices, that investment is worth billions. Everyone was saying MTV was a fad. I knew better.
Sumner Redstone - Media - Buying - Instinct - Advice - Investing


The explosion was good. It sent a message to the rest of the world that the time of the big star getting all this money is over. And it is! I would like to think that what I did, or what we did, has had a salutary effect on the rest of the industry. (Sumner talking about firing Tom Cruise)
Sumner Redstone - Media
- Wages

I never expected to be in the papers. I personally never expected to be in the papers. The height of my ambition for these books was, well frankly, to get reviewed. A lot of children's books don't even get reviewed.. forget good review, bad review. Personally, no, I never expected to be in the papers so it's an odd experience when it happens to you.
J. K. Rowling - Success - Ambition - Book
- Media - Famous

I didn't think they'd rake through my bins, I didn't expect to be photographed on the beach through long lenses. I never dreamt it would impact my daughter's life negatively, which at times it has. It would be churlish to say there's nothing good about being famous; to have a total stranger walk up to you as you're walking around Safeways, and say a number of nice things that they might say about your work... I mean of course you walk on with a bit more spring in your step.
J. K. Rowling - Media - Famous - Negative - Dreams


Our strength stems from the fact that we have some of the best brains in the communications, media and entertainment industry.
Harindra Singh - Strength - Media - Employee
- Best

I don’t believe in talking about my work. I let it speak for itself. I’d rather make money than just talk about my business. People think that because I don’t talk much to the media, I am arrogant. I am not arrogant, but I do have an attitude.
Shailendra Singh - Media - Work - Money
- Business - Attitude

Participant (Productions) is the only production company in town that has a double bottom line: social good plus financial returns. It's too early to tell how our returns are going to look - though all signs are promising - but social good is what we're really after.
Jeff Skoll - Media - Profits - Companies - Business Ethics - Social - Earnings

The goal here is to build a brand around social relevance in media (with his Participant Productions company).
Jeff Skoll - Media - Social - Goals - Branding

On an average day 7 minutes of news happens. Yet there are currently three full-time, 24-hour news networks.
Jon Stewart - Media


When all is said and done, what must be remembered is a newspaper is a business. It used to be a fabulous business that made extraordinary margins. It's now a very good business with appropriate margins.
Sam Zell - Companies - News - Business - Media - Profits

I think there's confusion around what the point of social networks is. A lot of different companies characterized as social networks have different goals - some serve the function of business networking, some are media portals. What we're trying to do is just make it really efficient for people to communicate, get information and share information
.
Mark Zuckerberg - Sharing - Facebook - Social Network - Media - Communicate - Internet

It's not because of the amount of money. For me and my colleagues, the most important thing is that we create an open information flow for people. Having media corporations owned by conglomerates is just not an attractive idea to me.
Mark Zuckerberg - Sharing - Facebook - Media - Money - Conglomerate - Important
