Famous quotes containing the word television:

    They [parents] can help the children work out schedules for homework, play, and television that minimize the conflicts involved in what to do first. They can offer moral support and encouragement to persist, to try again, to struggle for understanding and mastery. And they can share a child’s pleasure in mastery and accomplishment. But they must not do the job for the children.
    Dorothy H. Cohen (20th century)

    ... there is no reason to confuse television news with journalism.
    Nora Ephron (b. 1941)

    The television critic, whatever his pretensions, does not labour in the same vineyard as those he criticizes; his grapes are all sour.
    Frederic Raphael (b. 1931)
