Television was supposed to be a national park. Instead it has become a money machine. It's a commodity now, just like pork bellies.

Television makes so much at its worst that it can't afford to do its best.

[Murrow] taught us many valuable lessons about responsibility, and to always, always question authority, because with it authority often goes unchecked.

The news is the one thing that the networks can point to with pride. Everything else they do is crap - and they know it.
