Haskell Wexler
TV news is what you want it to be, and if you want it to be different, take a look at what you watch.
Aaron Brown
TV news has largely given Trump editorial control.
Campbell Brown
Surveys have shown going back as far as you and I can remember that people have perceived a leftward tilt in the basic coverage that they get on TV news.
Brit Hume
I don’t think we treat people very well in the media, both as customers – and I call them customers – of newspapers and magazines, or TV news, and we don’t understand that the greatest story that we could tell, each and every day, is the story of the people around us.

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.

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.

Kristen Welker
I have an Emmy, but it’s no big deal: work in TV news long enough, you eventually get one.
Deborah Copaken Kogan
Every time a pundit or elected official is on any TV news program, it should be a polite formality to mention that GE has made such and such billions off the war in Iraq by selling arms or that Murdoch is a right-wing activist with a clear stake in who wins and who taxes his profits the least.
Adam McKay
Cynics will say there are no good people out there. And if you read the papers and watch TV news you could be convinced of that. But there are good people.
Jan Karon
TV news dominates politics and is extremely low-bandwidth: it contains a few hundred words and rarely uses graphics properly.
