The American people don't believe politicians. They don't believe business leaders or Hollywood celebrities or athletes or other supposed role models. And they certainly don't believe the news media.John Yarmuth Media Role Sayings By John Yarmuth: The American people don't believe politicians. They don't believe business leaders or Hollywood celebrities or
Media play a powerful role in establishing and perpetuating social norms.Jackson Katz Media Role Sayings By Jackson Katz: Media play a powerful role in establishing and perpetuating social norms.
I played a major role in the spread of crack cocaine, the marketing of crack cocaine, the glamorization of crack cocaine. But it's hard to say that it was totally my fault. My judge in Cincinnati told me, "Mr. Ross, I know that the prosecutor and the media and the DEA all want to blame you for this problem, but I sentenced my first drug dealer the year you were born, so I know you're not the cause. This is a problem we've had since before you were born."Rick Ross Media Role Sayings By Rick Ross: I played a major role in the spread of crack cocaine, the marketing of crack
You look at the pillars of the state: politics, the media, police, lawyers - they've all got their formal role, and then nestling above that is that power elite who are networked in through soft, social links, that are actually running the show. Why didn't I know that 10 years ago, and why didn't I rail against it? Why did I become part of it?Tom A. Watson Media Role Sayings By Tom A. Watson: You look at the pillars of the state: politics, the media, police, lawyers - they've
I think if women are visible in the media, truly visible, in an empowered role, it empowers us to be more visible in any area of our lives.Gloria Steinem Media Role Sayings By Gloria Steinem: I think if women are visible in the media, truly visible, in an empowered role,
Past conference topics have included strengthening the role of fathers in children's lives, the impact of the media culture on children, the delicate balance between work and family, and family involvement in education.Tipper Gore Media Role Sayings By Tipper Gore: Past conference topics have included strengthening the role of fathers in children's lives, the impact
As social media is less about technology and more about relationship building, we are starting to see more women have a heavy influence if not dominant role in the social media space. It's no wonder that Facebook is being run in part by chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg.Erik Qualman Media Role Sayings By Erik Qualman: As social media is less about technology and more about relationship building, we are starting
The media sells it and you live the role.Ozzy Osbourne Media Role Sayings By Ozzy Osbourne: The media sells it and you live the role.
The U.S. news media have a critical role to play in educating the public about climate change.Amy Goodman Media Role Sayings By Amy Goodman: The U.S. news media have a critical role to play in educating the public about
The media has become more forceful, has begun to recognize its traditional historic role and act on it, and truth is infectious.Ron Suskind Media Role Sayings By Ron Suskind: The media has become more forceful, has begun to recognize its traditional historic role and
I believe the United States government is being
systematically taken over by a revolutionary network. They call themselves
Progressives, but we know they are really leftist radicals,
dedicated to the demise of the free-market capitalist system. They have
co-opted and bought off leaders of both the Republican and Democratic
parties, established a dominant role in all three branches of
government and thoroughly co-opted the mainstream media.
Ziad K. Abdelnour Media Role Sayings By Ziad K. Abdelnour: I believe the United States government is beingsystematically taken over by a revolutionary network. They
Chapter 4,'Organised abuse and the pleasures of disbelief', uses Zizek's (1991) insights into cite political role of enjoyment to analyse the hyperbole and scorn that has characterised the sceptical account of organised and ritualistic abuse. The central argument of this chapter is that organised abuse has come to public attention primarily as a subject of ridicule within the highly partisan writings of journalists, academics and activists aligned with advocacy groups for people accused of sexual abuse. Whilst highlighting the pervasive misrepresentations that characterise these accounts, the chapter also implicates media consumers in the production of ignorance and disdain in relation to organised abuse and women's and children's accounts of sexual abuse more generally.Michael Salter Media Role Sayings By Michael Salter: Chapter 4,'Organised abuse and the pleasures of disbelief', uses Zizek's (1991) insights into cite political
When you are the only laowai in a village of 10,000 Chinese martial artists and you've sat through several dozen films where a white man shouts, "You Chinese dog," before getting his ass kicked, it starts to irritate you. We all need role models.Matthew Polly Media Role Sayings By Matthew Polly: When you are the only laowai in a village of 10,000 Chinese martial artists and
No matter how much control kids get over the media they watch, they are still utterly powerless when it comes to the manufacturing of brands. Even a consumer revolt merely reinforces one's role as a consumer, not an autonomous or creative being.Douglas Rushkoff Media Role Sayings By Douglas Rushkoff: No matter how much control kids get over the media they watch, they are still
Our society assigns us a tiny number of roles: We're producers of one thing at work, consumers of a great many things all the rest of the time, and then, once a year or so, we take on the temporary role of citizen and cast a vote. Virtually all our needs and desires we delegate to specialists of one kind or another - our meals to the food industry, our health to the medical profession, entertainment to Hollywood and the media, mental health to the therapist or the drug company, caring for nature to the environmentalist, political action to the politician, and on and on it goes. Before long it becomes hard to imagine doing much of anything for ourselves - anything, that is, except the work we do "to make a living." For everything else, we feel like we've lost the skills, or that there's someone who can do it better ... it seems as though we can no longer imagine anyone but a professional or an institution or a product supplying our daily needs or solving our problems.Michael Pollan Media Role Sayings By Michael Pollan: Our society assigns us a tiny number of roles: We're producers of one thing at
Growing up, it was difficult to find role models I could relate too. Mass media told me to emulate sexy singers or sexy actresses. Jane Goodall was the closest thing I found to a woman I wanted to be like.Lynsey Dyer Media Role Sayings By Lynsey Dyer: Growing up, it was difficult to find role models I could relate too. Mass media
The historic role of the consumer has been nothing more than a giant maw at the end of the mass media's long conveyer belt, the all-absorbing Yin to the mass media's all-producing Yang ... In the age of the internet, no one is a passive consumer anymore because everyone is a media outlet.Clay Shirky Media Role Sayings By Clay Shirky: The historic role of the consumer has been nothing more than a giant maw at
The 'Big Green Debate' has entered a very interesting stage. Once there was endless controversy; now there is near unanimity. Once there was universal political indifference; now the bandwagon is abrim with politicians in catch-up mode. Once the media were semi-detached: now they're really getting stuck in. And they need to be! Many people are confused and disempowered, and the role of the media in getting then informed and engaged is criticalJonathon Porritt Media Role Sayings By Jonathon Porritt: The 'Big Green Debate' has entered a very interesting stage. Once there was endless controversy;
Once implemented, the method played a crucial role in increasing literacy rates, and making Chinese more accessible to Western media and scholarship.David Moser Media Role Sayings By David Moser: Once implemented, the method played a crucial role in increasing literacy rates, and making Chinese
The war on drugs was never meant to be won. Instead, it will be prolonged as long as possible in order to allow various intelligence operations to wring the last few hundreds of millions of dollars in illicit profits from the global drug scam; then defeat will have to be declared. "Defeat" will mean, as it did in the case of the Vietnam War, that the media will correctly portray the true dimensions of the situation and the real players, and that public revulsion at the culpability, stupidity and venality of the Establishment's role will force a policy review.Terence McKenna Media Role Sayings By Terence McKenna: The war on drugs was never meant to be won. Instead, it will be prolonged
To far too many, science is a four-letter word, and under the modern media's false equivalency standards, a handful of skeptics are viewed as counterweights to the vast majority of scientists who acknowledge mankind's proven role in global warming.Christine Pelosi Media Role Sayings By Christine Pelosi: To far too many, science is a four-letter word, and under the modern media's false
With regard to the youth vote we should encourage them to partake in the process, making more use of our education system to show the role Government plays in their lives, but also utilise the youth media they relate to to better connect them to our message.Adam Rickitt Media Role Sayings By Adam Rickitt: With regard to the youth vote we should encourage them to partake in the process,
Even what may have seemed, in retrospect, like minor quibbles - over the particular wording of sharia clauses, for example - reflected fundamental divides over the boundaries, limits, and purpose of the nation-state. For liberals, certain rights and freedoms are, by definition, nonnegotiable. They envision the state as a neutral arbiter. Meanwhile, even those Islamists who have little interest in legislating morality see the state as a promoter of a certain set of religious and moral values, through the soft power of the state machinery, the educational system, and the media. For them, these conservative values are not ideologically driven but represent a self-evident popular consensus around the role of religion in public life. The will of the people, particularly when it coincides with the will of God, takes precedence over any presumed international human rights norms.Shadi Hamid Media Role Sayings By Shadi Hamid: Even what may have seemed, in retrospect, like minor quibbles - over the particular wording
What is power, after all? Every one of the power elite's overwhelming advantages - military forces, surveillance systems, crowd control technology, control over the media, and nearly all the money in the world - depends on having people obeying orders and executing an assigned role. This obedience is a matter of shared ideologies, institutional culture, and the legitimacy of the systems in which we play roles. Legitimacy is a matter of collective perception, and we have the power to change people's perceptions.Charles Eisenstein Media Role Sayings By Charles Eisenstein: What is power, after all? Every one of the power elite's overwhelming advantages - military
I respect very much the role of the media in our society; I think they can be very, very helpful. They serve as a very useful check, sort of a watchdog over the actions of the government, and I respect that.Alberto Gonzales Media Role Sayings By Alberto Gonzales: I respect very much the role of the media in our society; I think they
The mainstream media may have trouble resisting the temptation to declare that Karl Rove has been demoted, but the truth is quite the contrary. By giving up his role as deputy White House chief of staff, Rove has been freed to do what he does best: shape big issues and develop strategies to win elections.Fred Barnes Media Role Sayings By Fred Barnes: The mainstream media may have trouble resisting the temptation to declare that Karl Rove has
Belief that where there is a problem, there must be a solution, I shall conclude with the following suggestions. We must, as a start, not delude ourselves with preposterous notions such as the straight Luddite position as outlined, for example, in Jerry Mander's Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television. Americans will not shut down any part of their technological apparatus, and to suggest that they do so is to make no suggestion at all. It is almost equally unrealistic to expect that nontrivial modifications in the availability of media will ever be made. Many civilized nations limit by law the amount of hours television may operate and thereby mitigate the role television plays in public life. But I believe that this is not a possibility in America. Once having opened the Happy Medium to full publicNeil Postman Media Role Sayings By Neil Postman: Belief that where there is a problem, there must be a solution, I shall conclude
You see, Dad, Professor McLuhan says that the environment that man creates becomes his medium for defining his role in it. The invention of type created linear, or sequential thought, separating thought from action. Now, with TV and folk singing, thought and action are closer and social involvement is greater. We again live in a village. Get it?Marshall McLuhan Media Role Sayings By Marshall McLuhan: You see, Dad, Professor McLuhan says that the environment that man creates becomes his medium
When I talk about responsibility, I am really talking about having power. Blame is about giving away one's power. Responsibility gives us the power to make changes in our lives. If we play the victim role, then we are using our personal power to be helpless. If we decide to accept responsibility, then we don't waste time blaming somebody or something out there. Some people feel guilty for creating illness, or poverty, or problems. They choose to interpret responsibility as guilt. (Some members of the media like to refer to it as New Age Guilt.) These people feel guilty because they believe that they have failed in some way.Louise L. Hay Media Role Sayings By Louise L. Hay: When I talk about responsibility, I am really talking about having power. Blame is about
Pluralism also creates a more open system and allows independent media to flourish, making it easier for groups that have an interest in the continuation of inclusive institutions to become aware and organize against threats to these institutions. It is highly significant that the English state stopped censoring the media after 1688. The media played a similarly important role in empowering the population at large and in the continuation of the virtuous circle of institutional development in the United States, as we will see in this chapter.Daron Acemoglu Media Role Sayings By Daron Acemoglu: Pluralism also creates a more open system and allows independent media to flourish, making it
The most puzzling thing about TV is the steady advance of the sponsor across the line that has always separated news from promotion, entertainment from merchandising. The advertiser has assumed the role of originator, and the performer has gradually been eased into the role of peddler.E.B. White Media Role Sayings By E.B. White: The most puzzling thing about TV is the steady advance of the sponsor across the
When I was really young, the women's national team wasn't on a grand media stage, so my role models were male basketball and male American football players.Abby Wambach Media Role Sayings By Abby Wambach: When I was really young, the women's national team wasn't on a grand media stage,
A lot of people like to justify women's supporting role in sports media by saying, 'Well, they've never played the game, so they just aren't qualified to speak about it.'Katie Nolan Media Role Sayings By Katie Nolan: A lot of people like to justify women's supporting role in sports media by saying,
We mothers have a wonderfully precious and truly powerful role to play in the future self-images of our daughters. The truth is, the most effective way to inculcate in our daughters a fighting chance at life-long self-love and empowerment is not in the books we read to them, or the workshops we send them to, or the media we do or do not expose them to, or even the things we tell them, rather it is in the reflection of self-love and empowerment they see in us, their mothers. The model of our own empowerment gives our daughters permission to be powerful. Of course, culture and societal norms mold our view of ourselves as women, but the beliefs and behaviors of our mothers are far more influential.Melia Keeton-Digby Media Role Sayings By Melia Keeton-Digby: We mothers have a wonderfully precious and truly powerful role to play in the future
The mass media serve as a system for communicating messages and symbols to the general populace. It is their function to amuse, entertain, and inform, and to inculcate individuals with the values, beliefs, and codes of behavior that will integrate them into the institutional structures of the larger society. In a world of concentrated wealth and major conflicts of class interest, to fulfil this role requires systematic propaganda.Noam Chomsky Media Role Sayings By Noam Chomsky: The mass media serve as a system for communicating messages and symbols to the general
I feel like an ambassador for surfing at this point. I'm happy to go and play that role and share that where I can in certain areas of the mainstream media that doesn't get the surfing attention.Kelly Slater Media Role Sayings By Kelly Slater: I feel like an ambassador for surfing at this point. I'm happy to go and
Women's liberation is one thing, but the permeation of anti-male sentiment in post-modern popular culture - from our mocking sitcom plots to degrading commercial story lines - stands testament to the ignorance of society. Fair or not, as the lead gender that never requested such a role, the historical male reputation is quite balanced.
For all of their perceived wrongs, over centuries they've moved entire civilizations forward, nurtured the human quest for discovery and industry, and led humankind from inconvenient darkness to convenient modernity. Navigating the chessboard that is human existence is quite a feat, yet one rarely acknowledged in modern academia or media. And yet for those monumental achievements, I love and admire the balanced creation that is man for all his strengths and weaknesses, his gifts and his curses. I would venture to say that most wise women do.
Tiffany Madison Media Role Sayings By Tiffany Madison: Women's liberation is one thing, but the permeation of anti-male sentiment in post-modern popular culture
A propaganda model has a certain initial plausibility on guided free-market assumptions that are not particularly controversial. In essence, the private media are major corporations selling a product (readers and audiences) to other businesses (advertisers). The national media typically target and serve elite opinion, groups that, on the one hand, provide an optimal "profile" for advertising purposes, and, on the other, play a role in decision-making in the private and public spheres. The national media would be failing to meet their elite audience's needs if they did not present a tolerably realistic portrayal of the world. But their "societal purpose" also requires that the media's interpretation of the world reflect the interests and concerns of the sellers, the buyers, and the governmental and private institutions dominated by these groups.Noam Chomsky Media Role Sayings By Noam Chomsky: A propaganda model has a certain initial plausibility on guided free-market assumptions that are not
The media does play a vital role in our democracy, and if we cannot depend on journalistic ethics, the nation's in trouble.Dave Brat Media Role Sayings By Dave Brat: The media does play a vital role in our democracy, and if we cannot depend
There have been vast changes in the composition and role of the news media over the decades, and that is a cause for concern as well. When I first entered government nearly forty-eight years ago, three television networks and a handful of newspapers dominated coverage and, to a considerable degree, filtered the most extreme or vitriolic points of view. Today, with hundreds of cable channels, blogs, and other electronic media, too often the professional integrity and long-established standards and practices of journalists are diluted or ignored. Every point of view - including the most extreme - has a ready vehicle for rapid dissemination. And it seems the more vitriolic the opinion, the more attention it gets. This system is clearly more democratic and open, but I believe it has also fueled the coarsening and dumbing down of our national political dialogue.Robert M. Gates Media Role Sayings By Robert M. Gates: There have been vast changes in the composition and role of the news media over
With the never-ending stream of new social technologies, apps and platforms rolling out every day, its easy to get lost in the minutiae of social media. Yet for there to be effective change, especially within large, top-down, hierarchical institutions, a company must have an over-arching understanding of the new role it has to play.Simon Mainwaring Media Role Sayings By Simon Mainwaring: With the never-ending stream of new social technologies, apps and platforms rolling out every day,
Games have a huge impact on our society because the media plays a role in helping to shape our attitudes. So it's not just fantasy.Anita Sarkeesian Media Role Sayings By Anita Sarkeesian: Games have a huge impact on our society because the media plays a role in
We have a problem with several media taking only a part of the reality and not the whole picture. Some media in the world are more critical towards what's happening than others. It depends on the journalist, it depends how much information they have about the case and which perspective they are asking you from. All of these things can play a role.Ahmed Akkari Media Role Sayings By Ahmed Akkari: We have a problem with several media taking only a part of the reality and
Each space has a role to play, but while to date the majority of media investment and energy has really focused on the bought on the bought space ... this balance is shifting to a much stronger emphasis on owned and generated spaces.Jamie Leach Media Role Sayings By Jamie Leach: Each space has a role to play, but while to date the majority of media
A leader does not develop leadership by gaining more followers. Great leaders make more leaders.J.R. Rim Media Role Sayings By J.R. Rim: A leader does not develop leadership by gaining more followers. Great leaders make more leaders.
On the whole, I think the Darwinian theory of evolution, at least with the additional insights of modern genetics, gives us a fairly coherent account of the evolution of human life on earth. At the same time, I believe that karma can have a central role in understanding the origination of what Buddhism calls "sentience," through the media of energy and consciousness.Dalai Lama XIV Media Role Sayings By Dalai Lama XIV: On the whole, I think the Darwinian theory of evolution, at least with the additional
We rappers are role models.Kanye West Media Role Sayings By Kanye West: We rappers are role models.
I think my role is as a writer, especially, and then also as a speaker, an organizer, and an entre- preneur of social change. My role isn't to make choices for people-each individual or group needs to do that on their own. But as a writer and a speaker, you can describe possibilities that perhaps haven't been visible before, and aren't in other public dialogues or in the rest of the media. So I suppose I think of myself mainly as an organizer and as someone who describes possibilities.Gloria Steinem Media Role Sayings By Gloria Steinem: I think my role is as a writer, especially, and then also as a speaker,
But particularly when the media profess to strive toward objectivity, gatekeepers play a crucial role in helping people navigate the news to make educated political decisions.Eric Alterman Media Role Sayings By Eric Alterman: But particularly when the media profess to strive toward objectivity, gatekeepers play a crucial role

The growing role of enterprise social media, plus the growing budgets and authority of CMOs entrusted with choosing the best platforms, translates into an exciting future for apps that harness social potential for large companies.Ryan Holmes Media Role Sayings By Ryan Holmes: The growing role of enterprise social media, plus the growing budgets and authority of CMOs
Generally, old media don't die. They just have to grow old gracefully. Guess what, we still have stone masons. They haven't been the primary purveyors of the written word for a while now of course, but they still have a role because you wouldn't want a TV screen on your headstone.Douglas Adams Media Role Sayings By Douglas Adams: Generally, old media don't die. They just have to grow old gracefully. Guess what, we
For Trump diehards in a time of danger and disjunction, the media's job was not to challenge, but to affirm. So when demonstrators poured not the streets to protest police killings of Blacks, the media was supposed to confirm for them that those chaos makers were actually supporting the killing of cops, that somehow the Movement for Black Lives was a Black version of the Ku Klux Klan. And some pundits - Hannity, the same O'Reilly who confronted Trump - dutifully filled this role. In their telling, 'Black Lives Matter' was not a call to end state violence against Blacks-and in that way, to end state violence against all-it was evidence of hatred against whites, a premonition of racial apocalypse.Jeff Chang Media Role Sayings By Jeff Chang: For Trump diehards in a time of danger and disjunction, the media's job was not
It seems obvious, looking back, that the artists of Weimar Germany and Leninist Russia lived in a much more attenuated landscape of media than ours, and their reward was that they could still believe, in good faith and without bombast, that art could morally influence the world. Today, the idea has largely been dismissed, as it must in a mass media society where art's principal social role is to be investment capital, or, in the simplest way, bullion. We still have political art, but we have no effective political art. An artist must be famous to be heard, but as he acquires fame, so his work accumulates 'value' and becomes, ipso-facto, harmless. As far as today's politics is concerned, most art aspires to the condition of Muzak. It provides the background hum for power.Robert Hughes Media Role Sayings By Robert Hughes: It seems obvious, looking back, that the artists of Weimar Germany and Leninist Russia lived
If there is a silver lining in the action of MSNBC against Keith Olbermann, it is that people will now pay more attention to the political role of corporate media in America.Bernie Sanders Media Role Sayings By Bernie Sanders: If there is a silver lining in the action of MSNBC against Keith Olbermann, it
There is no room for dictating taste in the diverse and dynamic world of media. To limit taste only limits the role we play for people of all kinds.Lachlan Murdoch Media Role Sayings By Lachlan Murdoch: There is no room for dictating taste in the diverse and dynamic world of media.
Since leaving office in 1977, Dr. Kissinger has continued to play a highly influential role in U.S. politics, in the U.S. media, and in the Rockefeller world empire. It was Kissinger, along with David Rockefeller, who was decisive in the disastrous decision of President Carter to admit the recently toppled Shah of Iran, old friend and ally of the Rockefellers into the United States, a decision that led directly to the Iranian hostage crisis and to Carter's downfall.Murray Rothbard Media Role Sayings By Murray Rothbard: Since leaving office in 1977, Dr. Kissinger has continued to play a highly influential role
Even the most outspoken of the critics must admit that long before we had print and film media to "spread the word," mankind was engaged in all forms of cruel and despicable behavior. To attribute war, killing, and violence to film, TV, and role-play games is to fly in the face of thousands of years of recorded history.Gary Gygax Media Role Sayings By Gary Gygax: Even the most outspoken of the critics must admit that long before we had print
As actors, we need public relations to campaign for our next possible role, and any media promoting our work seems positive in nature; but whether in theater or on a film set, a bad unprofessional photograph at the wrong angle may not be as flattering to some actors, and may be considered a harmful exposure.Carson Grant Media Role Sayings By Carson Grant: As actors, we need public relations to campaign for our next possible role, and any
We must sober up and admit that too many of the Republicans and the Democrats have played us, lied to us and stolen from us, while the getaway car was driven by the media. A media that can no longer claim with a straight face the role of journalist. Journalists print the things the powerful don't want printed. What they do is public relations. Those PR firms will not print the truth about the average American who finds himself concerned with the direction of our country today. So we must. We are not violent. We are not racist. We are not anti immigrant. We are not anti-government. And we will not be silent anymore.Glenn Beck Media Role Sayings By Glenn Beck: We must sober up and admit that too many of the Republicans and the Democrats
The role of social media is critical because it helps to spread cognitive dissonance by connecting thought leaders and activists to ordinary citizens rapidly expanding the network of people who become willing to take action.Simon Mainwaring Media Role Sayings By Simon Mainwaring: The role of social media is critical because it helps to spread cognitive dissonance by
The clever use of media (i.e., TV political ads, image creations and management) kept us from raising or even addressing major problems we face as a nation - our identity, our values, our role as a resource for peace rather than war, for justice rather than its miscarriages, for people rather than corporations, for decency rather than humiliation, and for democracy rather than "hypocracy." Martin Luther King, Jr., stated it well: A true revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth. With righteous indignation, it will look across the seas and see individual capitalists of the West investing huge sums of money in Asia, Africa and South America, only to take the profits out with no concern for the social betterment of the countries, and say: "This is not just. . . .Anthony J. Marsella Media Role Sayings By Anthony J. Marsella: The clever use of media (i.e., TV political ads, image creations and management) kept us
