News Quotes A-Z by Author|
We wanted to make the news, not be the news.
But that produced extraordinary curiosity
as to who we were.. this attempt not to
be the news, made us the news.
Assange - News
You have to be precise. You have to be specific,
but you want to be accurate. That is first
and foremost. You want to be on top of the
story, but words do matter.
Blitzer - News
You see a lot over 30 years and you try to be professional and responsible.
A lot of the interviews you do can be very haunting.
Blitzer - News
I think what we try to do is bring the news to our viewers in a very comprehensive
Blitzer - News
You tell the people the stories the best you know. If there is something
you don't know, you be up front and make that clear. You always give the aggrieved
party the chance to respond before you publish or go to air. That's just my kind
of old-fashioned news values.
Blitzer - News
They own you. They own everything. They
own all the important land. They own and
control the corporations. Theyve 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 Ill tell
you what they dont want. They dont
want a population of citizens capable of
critical thinking. They dont want
well-informed, well-educated people capable
of critical thinking. Theyre not interested
in that. That doesnt help them. Thats
against their interests.
Carlin - America
Business - 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
Chopra - Media
I just feel sorry for the people who only get their news from us because
theyre missing half the joke. Yes, we do a joke on what the news is, but
the other half is on how the news is reported. So, if they watch the nightly news
or cable news program, theyll enjoy our show more.
Colbert - Funny
- News -
lead in all the polls by at least ten points, except one.. Fox
News. That is with a margin of error of plus or minus the facts.
Colbert - News
The world reacts very strangely to people they see on TV, and I can begin
to understand how anchor monsters are made. If you're not careful, you can become
used to being treated as though you're special and begin to expect it. For a reporter,
that's the kiss of death.
Cooper - Understanding
A lot of compelling stories in the world aren't being told, and the fact
that people don't know about them compounds the suffering. To me, there is value
in bearing witness to what is happening to people who are living their lives with
great dignity in the face of horror.
Cooper - Knowledge
I think it's a
good thing that there are bloggers out there watching very closely and holding
people accountable. Everyone in the news should be able to hold up to that kind
of scrutiny. I'm for as much transparency in the newsgathering process as possible.
Cooper - News
I'm not trying to be something that I'm not. I'm just trying to be myself
and talk about what I know, and admit what I don't know.
Cooper - Truth
I've always studied business. Even when
I was a ball player, I'd read business journals
and the business sections of newspapers.
Johnson - Business
I not only could not stifle controversy
among your readers.. I welcome it. This
Administration intends to be candid about
its errors; for as a wise man once said:
"An error does not become a mistake
until you refuse to correct it." We
intend to accept full responsibility for
our errors; and we expect you to point them
out when we miss them.
F. Kennedy - Controversy
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.
F. Kennedy - USA
Amendment - News
When you travel as secretary, one problem
you have is that the press comes with you
and wants an immediate result because it
justifies their trip. And sometimes the
best result is that you don't try to get
a result but try to get an understanding
for the next time you go to them.
Kissinger - Geopolitics
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, theres
just millions of voices and people want
to be heard.
Murdoch - Internet
Most newspaper companies still have their heads in the sand, but other media
companies are aggressive.
Murdoch - Change
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
Murdoch - Media
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.
Murdoch - Climate
Change - Responsibility
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.
Murdoch - Media
Im not a member of the permanent political
establishment. And Ive learned quickly
these past few days that if youre
not a member in good standing of the Washington
elite, then some in the media consider a
candidate unqualified for that reason alone.
But heres a little news flash for
all those reporters and commentators: Im
not going to Washington to seek their good
opinion. Im going to Washington to
serve the people of this country.
Palin - Politicians
On an average day 7 minutes of news happens.
Yet there are currently three full-time,
24-hour news networks.
Stewart - Media
If you don't read the newspaper, you are
uninformed; if you do read the newspaper,
you are misinformed.
Twain - Newspapers
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.
Zell - Companies
