Citáty Newton N. Minow

„I can assure you that you will observe a vast wasteland.“

—  Newton N. Minow

Speech to the National Association of Broadcasters, May 9, 1961 (the Wasteland Speech)
Kontext: When television is good, nothing--not the theater, not the magazines or newspapers--nothing is better.
But when television is bad, nothing is worse. I invite you to sit down in front of your television set when your station goes on the air and stay there without a book, magazine, newspaper, profit and-loss sheet or rating book to distract you--and keep your eyes glued to that set until the station signs off. I can assure you that you will observe a vast wasteland.

„To quarrel over the past is to lose the future.“

—  Newton N. Minow
