If a politician murders his mother, the first response of the press or of his opponents will likely be not that it was a terrible thing to do, but rather that in a statement made six years before he had gone on record as being opposed to matricide.

Meg Greenfield

The mission of the press is to spread culture while destroying the attention span.

Karl Kraus

Freedom of the press is not an end in itself but a means to the end of [achieving] a free society.

Felix Frankfurter

The press is like the peculiar uncle you keep in the attic - just one of those unfortunate things.

G. Gordon Liddy

No government ought to be without censors & where the press is free, no one ever will.

Thomas Jefferson

I can honestly say to you, slaves of the press, that if I had as many love affairs as you have given me credit for, I would now be speaking to you from a jar at the Harvard Medical School.

Frank Sinatra

What gunpowder did for war the printing press has done for the mind.

Wendell Phillips

Faith in something greater than ourselves enables us to do what we have said we'll do, to press forward when we are tired or hurt or afraid, to keep going when the challenge seems overwhelming and the course is entirely uncertain.

Gordon B. Hinckley

I think so much these days people who don't have regular business in the criminal justice system determine guilt or innocence (from what is) in the press.

Sam Shaw

This announcement is not in response to the union's press conference. This is an announcement we'd been working on for a number of months.

Arlene Murray

We got some easy buckets against their press in the third quarter. I told the girls that if we get some easy baskets in the third quarter we are going to win the game.

Jason Murgel

I knew we were going to have some trouble with their press, but I thought we handled it OK. We got in some foul trouble that hurt us and we changed the way we wanted to play. But our younger kids came in and did a nice job for us.

Jerry Stracke

There's been a bit of tension and anxiety in camp this week. A lot of attention has been put on this game by the German press, so we're just at the point where we want to get things rolling.

Pablo Mastroeni

That big run put us where we needed to be. We played good defense and the press really got to Mountainburg early and it got us some easy shots. That's the way we like to play.

Alan Barton

A free and independent press is critical to the functioning of a democracy, and I am concerned about any actions which may erode the independence of the Iraqi media.

John W. Warner

There is no more important struggle for American democracy than ensuring a diverse, independent and free media. Free Press is at the heart of that struggle.

Bill Moyers

Wouldn't it be better to have a watertight law designed to catch the guilty, rather than a press release law designed to catch the headlines?

William Hague

Some of the press stories indicate that they came from export earnings that had not yet been remitted to the government. But that's all I know on that. They did, as I noted, make the payment.

Tom Dawson

Mentally what happened last year helps. You're not as nervous. You don't have to press as much because you know what it's about. That's just how it is.

John Gramuglia

Her speed is a great answer for a lot of people's press.
