TV News Quotes
The one function that TV news performs very well is that when there is no news we give it to you with the same emphasis as if it were.
I would not know how I am supposed to feel about many stories if not for the fact that the TV news personalities make sad faces for sad stories and happy faces for happy stories.
TV does not care about you or what happens to you. It's downright bad for your health now, and that's not a far-out concept. I think watching the TV news is bad for you. It is bad for your physical health and your mental health.

I do a lot of reading of news so I can be smarter, and I do a lot of watching TV news so I can know why Americans aren't very smart. Then I can point out the hypocrisy of politicians or the media.
Local television and local TV news isn't telling the voters about local candidates.
I've stopped watching TV news. They couldn't pay me enough money.
I have an Emmy, but it's no big deal: work in TV news long enough, you eventually get one.

When it was announced that I was going to be on 'Castle,' there were immediate messages on all the TV news sites from 'Firefly' fans hoping for a nod to the series - some encrypted business just for them! I can't promise that, but I can say that a few people out there might get a thrill.
