  2. “There are a lot of sources of information out there, so why don’t you curate for yourself a list, like a real timeline of information, like the New York Times, or JetBlue, or your friends, or this comedian, or this guy who pretends to be a cat, or whatever it is, whatever entertains you, whatever you find useful.” ~ Biz Stone

It’s not cool, it’s not okay. You are destroying beautiful animals. You are robbing a continent of its wealth. And you are hurting a lot of innocent people.” ~ Patrick Bergin
  30. “The New York Times is an institution that attracts careerists, who are drawn to power and access. This gave me a kind of a free hand.

  31. “Not only has [Donlald] Trump adopted that tactic attacking usual suspects like The New York Times and The Washington Post, but he`s turning it back on the conservative media who invented it in the first place.” ~ Chris Hayes

  46. “Richard Price got a million-dollar advance on one fake film book based on a paragraph outline and is able to seduce gullible White reviewers who know less about ghetto life than he.

  47. “A handful of us determine what will be on the evening news broadcasts, or, for that matter, in the New York Times or Washington Post or Wall Street Journal.

I went to work for him and he was horrible, butchering these masterpieces by Antonioni, Visconti, but I learned enough to know what he was doing wrong.” ~ Thelma Schoonmaker

  55. “The Democrats in the Senate adopted a resolution, an amendment, saying that there should be no Guantanamo detainees brought into this country.

As my two assistants will tell you, I don’t come to work in the mornings, for two reasons.

The second is, mornings are the best time to communicate with my clients abroad.” ~ I. M. Pei
  59. “In an old model, the way a film would imprint itself on the public’s consciousness is to get a theatrical run. But now there are more documentaries and more films, in general, being released than ever before. There are weeks when the New York Times is reviewing 15 films, so it’s harder to leave an impression on the public. A lot of these films are seeing their financial future on digital platforms. Because viewers aren’t hearing as much about films in theatrical release, I think the festival circuit is going to have increasing importance for the life of a film.” ~ Thom Powers
