God's glory is the big news of the Bible, and my desire is that it would be all about me, but really it's all about God's glory.
The price of being close to the President is delivering bad news. You fail him if you don't tell him the truth. Others won't do it.
But me contradicting a news story is not going to make my words fact. It will just create a new news story.
Now that I exist in the mainstream majority, I'm not really so controversial any more, am I? Not really news.
There are two sayings that are familiar in every news room across the country: 1) sex sells; 2) if it bleeds it leads.
Television news is now entertainment, and the stories are being written by the people that have a special interest in them.
Be able to notice all the confusion between fact and opinion that appears in the news.
Marilyn vos Savant
I've got some news... I'm delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together. I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we're over the moon.
I've been known to throw watermelons, backstage, at people who are giving me news I don't want to hear. But I never aim for the head.
With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power.
Henry A. Wallace
I love an underdog. No, I don't necessarily mean the cartoon. I mean like David, as in Goliath, or the Bears, as in The Bad News Bears.
I'm interested to see what happens with Fox News and phone hacking. I really can't believe it just happens in Great Britain. Because really, who cares about just hacking phones over there?
The most accurate representation of how I feel is that I'm incredibly lucky to be working in this structure where people get paid millions to read the news on TV. And, yes, it is insane. And there is nothing I can say beyond acknowledging my immense good fortune, and being aware that I'm blessed, and aware that it isn't going to last forever.
Every night I watch the nightly news. It's funded by the pharmaceutical companies. Virtually every ad is a drug ad. They get their say every night on the nightly news through advertising.

One little person, giving all of her time to peace, makes news. Many people, giving some of their time, can make history.
Bad news: Complainers are rewarded for complaining. Indicative of the victim culture in which we live, people have not only come to expect something for nothing, but are then rewarded for how loudly they can ventilate their sense of having been victims of fraud.
I get so disenfranchised reading the news, because global borders and lines we've created are completely unnecessary. That's just another person on the other side, and it's his bad luck that he was born there and it's my good fortune that I was born here. It's all kind of illogical.
Bad news sells because the amygdala is always looking for something to fear.
I think the 24-hour news cycle has helped exaggerate the differences between the parties. You can always find someone on TV somewhere carping about something. That didn't happen 20 years ago.

I'm not a hermit, but I definitely stay in a lot more than I used to. There's more attention now then there ever was. You walk down the street with someone and it's a story. It becomes national news, you know what I mean? So, I still do things, but I stay home a lot more.
News events are like Texas weather. If you don't like it, wait a minute.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
