I became a journalist partly so that I wouldn't ever have to rely on the press for my information.
Even if we give parents all the information they need and we improve school meals and build brand new supermarkets on every corner, none of that matters if when families step into a restaurant, they can't make a healthy choice.
On the Internet, inside information is currency, and there will always be counterfeiters among us.
J. Michael Straczynski
When I traveled as secretary of state, I was deluged with thick briefing books full of information about the politics, economy, and culture of each destination, so those took up most of my reading time.
The educated do not share a common body of information, but a common state of mind.
I'm not a theoretician about playwriting, but I have a strong sense that plays have to be pitched - the scene, the line, the word - at the exact point where the audience has just the right amount of information. It's like Occam's razor.
The whole thing about writing a play is that it's all about controlling the flow of information traveling from the stage to the audience. It's a stream of information, but you've got your hand on the tap, and you control in which order the audience receives it and with what emphasis, and how you hold it all together.

The past two decades revolutionized the way we access information. You and I can have our questions answered with the click of a mouse at any time of day. If America, both corporation and citizen alike, can use these services to solve problems, why can't Washington?
J. C. Watts
I believe that when you provide information to people, they become less fearful and they will engage more in their democracy if they are empowered with information.
As you lecture, you keep watching the faces, and information keeps coming back to you all the time.
We are witnessing a seismic change in consumer behavior. That change is being brought about by technology and the access people have to information.
I believe people have a right to know what's going on with their information and how it's collected, how it's stored and who gets it.
Whatever the device you use for getting your information out, it should be the same information.
The broken consumer credit market had to be repaired by making sure that consumers had the right information and could use it effectively. That meant consolidating the bloated patchwork of ineffective agencies and regulations so that a single agency could act as a voice for consumers.
But the newest research is showing that many properties of the brain are genetically organized, and don't depend on information coming in from the senses.
Information on how to heal autism and how to possibly delay vaccines or prevent autism shouldn't come from me. It should come from the medical establishment.
We willingly share personal information with companies for the convenience of using their products.
If information and knowledge are central to democracy, they are conditions for development.
Americans need accurate information in order to consider Social Security reform. Too bad the media can't be counted upon to provide it.
Getting bogged down in old stories stops the flow of learning by censoring our perceptions, making us functionally deaf and blind to new information. Once the replay button gets pushed, we no longer form new ideas or conclusions - the old ones are so cozy.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
