It is largely on television and radio that real probing of what politicians are up to has to happen.john humphrys
When I finished the series, I wasn't going to do television again. I never wanted to do television to begin with, and I was so exhausted by the process that I was wary of being in front of the camera again.gillian anderson
It's a good thing Winston Churchill was around before the shallow age of television. He might never have become one of the greatest leaders of all time and — for my money — one of the most charismatic. And, what the hell, also one of the sexiest.neil cavuto
Now you can see me in the flesh, and I don't really look as I'm made to look on television.Alec Douglas-Home
I want to play in Europe and I said it in the media and on television.alon mizrahi
Before the days of television and mass media, the folksinger was often a traveling newspaper spreading tales through music. There is an urgent need for Americans to look deeply into themselves and their actions, and musical poetry is perhaps the most effective mirror available. Every newspaper headline is a potential song.phil ochs
I have to paint fast on television because of the limited time, but I don't want people to see what I'm showing them as work, something to worry and fret over. This is supposed to be fun.bob ross
We want to tell American parents that they and they alone have total power to control every hour of television programming that comes into their home.jack valenti
I hope through The L Word to become an honorary member of the gay tribe. I cherish the thought that some young girl or woman somewhere may one night turn on the television and for the first time ever see her life represented -- not as an isolated incident but as a multiplicity. Her overwhelming fear may have been that she might never find her tribe, she might never find love and now she knows that they are both out there waiting for her.jennifer beals
The young watch television twenty-four hours a day, they don't read and they rarely listen. This incessant bombardment of images has developed a hypertrophied eye condition that's turning them into a race of mutants. They should pass a law for a total reeducation of the young, making children visit the Galleria Borghese on a daily basis.Federico Fellini
Never pass up a chance to have sex or appear on television.gore vidal
We are not stating by accident that Josip Broz Tito is Jesus Christ for Macedonia, a father and a mother for Macedonia. Because we have, in that time, after NOB, for the first time created a Macedonian alphabet, a Macedonian television, a Macedonian state, a language, a passport, an identity card, a university for the first time, a Macedonian academy for the first time. We, communists, have created the Macedonian Orthodox church.
By... our readiness to allow arms to be purchased at will and fired at whim; by allowing our movie and television screens to teach our children that the hero is one who masters the art of shooting and the technique of killing; by allowing all of these developments, we have created an atmosphere in which violence and hatred have become popular pastimes.
One of the few good things about modern times: If you die horribly on television, you will not have died in vain. You will have entertained us.kurt vonnegut
I hate television. I hate it as much as peanuts. But I can't stop eating peanuts.orson welles
Grandson: A book?
Grandpa: That's right. When I was your age, television was called 'books'.
television has brought back murder into the home where it belongs.
television is like the invention of indoor plumbing. It didn't change people’s habits. It just kept them inside the house.alfred hitchcock
television is becoming a collage — there are so many channels that you move through them making a collage yourself. In that sense, everyone sees something a bit different.David Hockney
television makes so much at its worst that it can't afford to do its best.
television was supposed to be a national park. (Instead) it has become a money machine... It’s a commodity now, just like pork bellies.
