Famous quotes containing the word news:

    Where village statesmen talked with looks profound,
    And news much older than their ale went round.
    Oliver Goldsmith (1728–1774)

    I don’t have any problem with a reporter or a news person who says the President is uninformed on this issue or that issue. I don’t think any of us would challenge that. I do have a problem with the singular focus on this, as if that’s the only standard by which we ought to judge a president. What we learned in the last administration was how little having an encyclopedic grasp of all the facts has to do with governing.
    David R. Gergen (b. 1942)

    [In response to this question from an interviewer: “U. S. News and World Report described you this way: ‘She’s intolerant, preachy, judgmental and overbearing. She’s bright, articulate, passionate and kind.’ Is that an accurate description?”:]
    It’s ... pretty good [ellipsis in original].
    Joycelyn Elders (b. 1933)
