“When you receive national recognition for leading the nation’s toughest crackdown on illegal immigration and serving as Donald Trump’s Virginia State Chairman, you get used to being falsely labeled as racist and xenophobic by the mainstream media, especially by ‘The Washington Post”s editorial board, which has labeled me as such things for years.”

― Corey Stewart

“I don’t have to prove my innocence to the court or to the news media.”

― Corrine Brown

“Every sector of society looks at digital analytics in a productive way. Limiting my ability to use them is just unacceptable. And by the way, Congress conducts polls using traditional methods. No one is using social media analytics as a substitute for that.”

― Cory Booker

“When we embraced social media, we took more control of the Newark narrative. We increased responsiveness toward residents. We drew more of our constituents in to participate in government and improve our cities.”

― Cory Booker

“50 and I are extremely close, so all that social media drama? It’s just for the show.”

― Courtney A. Kemp

“Don’t take social media seriously. Don’t buy into the hype.”

― Craig David

“For Oakley, I’m basically a media vehicle for them to promote the product. For me, it’s both, I get a salary from them, but I also get great products so it just kind of works, continues on.”

― Craig Kelly

“The mainstream media doesn’t want to get into this because they don’t want to know where this one goes.”

― Curt Weldon

“The mainstream media has its own agenda. They do not want to print the facts. They have an agenda, they have a slant, they have a bias. It is outrageous to me.”

― Curt Weldon

“With the exception of the New York Times, Fox news, and Lou Dobbs of CNN, and talk radio, the rest of the mainstream media has basically been silenced like a bunch of dumb monkeys.”

― Curt Weldon

“There are probably close to a million people in the hospitality industry here in the United States, and there are probably only a few hundred opportunities in the food media industry.”

“There’s some criminals that wear badges. Guess what? There’s some criminals that work in the media. There’s some criminals that are football coaches. There’s some criminals that are politicians. There are criminals that work in churches.”

― Dabo Swinney

“Fans can have whatever mindset they want to have. But I don’t want anything to creep into the culture of our program, because our players, they get stuff pushed at them – social media.”

― Dabo Swinney

“I was kind of loathe to go on social media. I find the trolling unacceptable, and I never wanted to look like I was someone who would accept that.”

― Daisy Ridley

“Trump has taken it to a new level. He is now viewing the media as the ‘opposition party,’ in his own words. Consequently, media coverage of Trump has become that much more significant.”

― Dan Abrams

“The idea behind Mediaite was always to focus on the punditry, focus on the personalities behind the political media.”

― Dan Abrams

“To the chagrin of many, the media gravitates towards controversy.”

― Dan Abrams

“Media is extraordinarily important and is an extraordinarily powerful tool. There’s a reason that the first things that a rebellion or revolt will take is the media. The story you transmit is the story that becomes a given, or the narrative of a country and people.”

― Dan Gilroy

“I moved to L.A. and watched a lot of local television news, and I started to see the burn logos up on the upper right hand corner – On-Scene Video, RMG Media Group, and all these other ones. I just became intrigued with it.”

― Dan Gilroy

“At times, my very own media makes me cringe, and occasionally out loud. By the way, nothing clears the head like an out-loud cringe.”

― Dan Jenkins

“Law enforcement has seen an unprecedented use of social media by ISIL. They’re just kind of flooding the airwaves.”

― Dana Boente

“I’ve blogged since 2001 and was first attracted to the medium by its wild-west aesthetic, if simply telling the truth that corporate media wasn’t telling could be so rebellious as to be defined as ‘wild west.’”

― Dana Loesch

“The media doesn’t understand conservatives at all.”

― Dana Loesch

“Liberal talk on the radio doesn’t perform well because it is not a sequestered to a niche – it’s everywhere in the media universe. Conservative talk radio, on the other hand, performs well because the radio is the only place, besides Fox News, that people can go for right-sphere opinions.”

― Dana Loesch

“Liberal radio performs poorly because its format already dominates other markets. And it will continue to perform poorly until the day comes when the rest of the media is at least balanced, if not fair.”

― Dana Loesch

“Facing fewer subscriptions, ratings drops, et al., media is catching on: people don’t want endless editorializing. They want the facts, Jack. If you’re going to be op/ed, at least be up front about it.”

― Dana Loesch

“I don’t think that I would always be asked about my feelings about liberal bias in the media if there wasn’t any liberal bias in the media. If it was a moot question, then we wouldn’t always have the discussion.”

― Dana Perino

“A key component of social media is ‘following’ – and no one is there to see what you have to say on Instagram or Twitter if they aren’t motivated to follow you.”

― Dana Perino

“Smart phones and social media expand our universe. We can connect with others or collect information easier and faster than ever.”

― Daniel Goleman

“Unfortunately, often found next to things that are true are an enormous number of things that are not – in websites, videos, books and on social media.”

― Daniel Levitin

“Longer distances yield local media coverage that tends to be more one-dimensional and absolute, less nuanced, and more sporadic.”

― Daniel Lubetzky

“I want to get in on how the media business is changing, how people are telling stories in new ways.”

― Daniel Lyons

“After I do my first writing of the day, I will generally look at Twitter and Google News – and that’s my big media secret. I look at Twitter and I look at Google because they pull all the headlines from other websites.”

― Daniel Mallory Ortberg

“You have to find out who you are aside from what the media say you are. If you’ve become reliant on them for kind of a sense of self, then you’re really screwed.”

― Daniel Radcliffe

“Diversity is just ‘the world.’ It’s different cultures, different backgrounds, different ethnicities, different religions, genders, sexual orientation, shapes, sizes. That is the world, but we call it ‘diversity’ because there is this one type that has always been accepted in the media, and it’s finally starting to change.”

― Danielle Macdonald

“It’s pretty shocking that the guys in Europe who cover traditional media will cover Google, whereas in the U.S., there are five different equity analysts that will cover the internet universe.”

― Danny Rimer

“I started in investment banking at Allen & Company in 1991. It was the go-go days of media mergers, and we were incredibly busy with one deal after another. Unlike typical investment banking groups, even in the midst of merger mania, we didn’t have a formal face-time culture – and I felt empowered by that.”

― Dara Khosrowshahi

“I was in a profession that received a lot of media.”

“I had to turn social media off. It was just crazy. Just to see the messages rolling through and people shouting, ‘Till beat Tyron,’ booking flights and booking hotels, that’s becoming the norm right now.”

― Darren Till

“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

“All too frequently, the knee jerk reaction to tragedies by the media and chattering class is to move to restrict our rights… Our founding documents make it clear that our inalienable rights come from God and that the job of the government is to ensure and protect those God-given rights.”

― Dave Brat

“Outlets are turning away from phone polling, which can be problematic. For example, we did a poll for NBC around the Ebola crisis; we provided results in 24 hours. Their traditional phone poll would have taken a week to turn around. We’re showing people we can do high-quality work: we’ve proved that with the work we do with the media.”

― Dave Goldberg

“There is a great insatiable hunger for good stories throughout the media.”

― Dave Morris

“Obviously, I agree with Trump on many of his criticisms of the mainstream media. You can absolutely argue that their failure to report honestly, to get outraged before we could, and to collude with the Clinton campaign directly led to the rise of Trump.”

“Big media companies can’t be like big battleships; they have to feel nimble.”

“When you have had the kind of fame I had, I was always hounded by the media and I lived a very isolated life. Now it’s even more difficult. The world has changed dramatically.”

― David Cassidy

“’Star Wars,’ ‘Doctor Who,’ ‘Forgotten Realms,’ even ‘Firefly’ and ‘The X-Files’ have shared world novels and other media. I can’t help but notice these settings have large shelf space in bookstores, so their publishers and authors are getting something right.”

― David Conyers

“The media continues to spin the State of Israel and Jews as war-mongering, evil people, which we are not.”

“For whatever reason, the mainstream media, for the most part, affixes itself to progressive or liberal propaganda.”

“In this age of media and Internet access, we are much more talkative than ever before.”

― David Duchovny

“Even China’s leaders routinely let the news media pool in, though they do their best to ignore them.”

― David E. Sanger

“Trump is somebody who sees the media as basically his main constituency. So much of his self-worth and his image and his view of what the presidency should be about is the media and how he is reflected in the media.”

― David Fahrenthold

“The great power the president has is that he is the most prominent person in the biggest media event on the planet. He has the attention of the nation and the world. When he speaks, everybody listens.”

― David Frum

“Look, the media are trapped by changes in the technology and business of their industry.”

― David Frum

“We citizens don’t need to know every detail of every military operation in this new kind of war. Nor should the media tell us and hence our enemy.”

― David Hackworth

“My work has always been controversial within certain segments of the Asian-American community. This is a community that is generally not represented well at all on the stage, in the media, etc. So on those few occasions when something comes along, everybody feels obligated to make sure that it represents his own point of view.”

― David Henry Hwang

“Half the battle with successful podcasts is in the naming; here, the big media owners have a lot to learn from the smaller operators.”

― David Hepworth

“What a lot the media, and especially Fox News, has messed up with me is they’ve made it seem like I’m trying to take away people’s guns – that I’m against the Second Amendment.”

― David Hogg

“I believe a mini-series has two audiences. The first is the media. Then I go for the television audience.”

― David L. Wolper

“I like the idea that songs can communicate in a way no other media can. That’s why I write them.”

― David Longstreth

“A lot of the music I was inspired by growing up – college rock, DIY, what they used to call indie rock – has a value system where truth-telling and authenticity are oppositional with mass media, showbiz, and commerce.”

― David Longstreth

“For somebody like Kanye, fame is the fullest realisation of his art in a way. It’s like an Andy Warhol dream or something. He’s able to marshal all of these different artforms and media into his story, in this very layered, idiosyncratic way.”

― David Longstreth

“Authors worry. We worry about writing. Worry about our editors, our agents, our reviews, and our readers. We worry about everything, including all forms of social media including blogs, Facebook, Twitter, and personal websites.”

― David Macinnis Gill

“When the three branches of government have failed to represent the citizenry and the mass of the media has failed to represent the citizenry, then the citizenry better represent the citizenry.”

“Nowadays, social media is the easiest place to go to find something.”

― David Nail

“Mental fitness is served by consciously redirecting our attention away from the constant bombardment from the media whose reason to be seems to be focused on keeping us in a state of constant alert.”

― David Perlmutter

“In the U.K., the history of regulation, certainly regulation of the media, is one in which, time and again, successive governments lacked the ‘bottle’ to enforce the powers that were available to them.”

― David Puttnam

“At least in the West, politicians, corporations and media moguls can no longer take for granted their power to control the public discourse – and have it go unchallenged.”

― David Puttnam

“Instrumental music is increasingly marginalized and there’s just no outlet, there’s no venue for it, in terms of media.”

― David Sanborn

“In the case of the Web, each of us has slightly more access to a mass audience – a few more people slide through the door – but Facebook is finally a crude, personal multimedia conglomerate machine, personal nation-state machine, reality-show machine. New gadgets alter social patterns, new media eclipse old ones, but the pyramid never goes away.”

― David Shields

“The joy of my career is I’ve been very blessed to be able to be an actor in major films, television, theater, and also British radio. In fact, my dream as an actor when I started out was to be able to work in all the media. Thankfully, that’s what I’m being given to do.”

― David Suchet

“When you’re kept by a patron you don’t have to duke it out in the media marketplace for dollars and for readers. In some ways that’s a blessing because it takes a lot of pressure off you.”

― David Talbot

“There are not that many new media brands you can say that about nowadays.”

― David Talbot

“I think we’ve broken story after story that the rest of the media refused to break even when they had the story because they were scared of the story, or they just didn’t think it was appropriate.”

― David Talbot

“The entire American media apparatus bought into the drug war – which is an enormously damaging and costly undertaking for this country – and there wasn’t enough critical reporting about it and that’s why it’s gotten out of hand.”

― David Talbot

“I’d only read a bit of the first book. And I just knew about all the media furor over it. But I’d not read books 2 or 3. I’d just read a bit of it. And I’d seen the films.”

― David Thewlis

“Synergy is the VCR of media right now – discredited, outdated and left behind.”

― David Zinczenko

“You don’t have to be famous to have problems on social media. It affects everyone, and it’s on there forever, and the things you say when you’re 15 are not necessarily what you’d say when you’re 25 or 35.”

― Davinia Taylor

“I’m aware that if the ball is thrown in my direction, I’m expected to catch it because the media is going to be on my back.”

― DeAngelo Williams

“The personal Michael is indescribable. He’s magnanimous. He truly is in every way. Had it not been for all the media stuff, I would have stayed married to him forever unless he finally got tired of me.”

― Debbie Rowe

“I used to love going on a junket and promoting a film when it was not a 24-hour news cycle, and when there weren’t so many media outlets. You could actually talk about the film.”

― Debra Winger

“I don’t read too much into things and look at social media. It’s all a load of crap.”

“Undoubtedly, Mexico’s crime-related problems have become a focus of attention among lawmakers, law enforcement, and the media in the United States.”

― Denise Dresser

“In Holland and Spain and France, where so many of us come from, people aren’t interested in the sex lives of their players. We don’t hear these stories – even in Italy where the media is right on top of football.”

― Dennis Bergkamp

“The Left has taken over the universities and, increasingly, high schools and elementary schools. It dominates the news and entertainment media. And many judges and courts are leftist – meaning that their decisions are guided by leftism more than by the law or the Constitution.”

― Dennis Prager

“How a society channels male aggression is one of the greatest questions as to whether that society will survive. That’s why I am not against violence in the media, I am against the glorification of immoral violence.”

― Dennis Prager

“Yet, while producing increasingly selfish people, the mantra of the Left, and therefore of the universities and the media, has been for generations that capitalism and the free market, not the welfare state, produces selfish people.”

― Dennis Prager

“Leftism has influenced the literary, academic, media, and, therefore, the political elite far more than any other religion. It has taken over Western schools from elementary through graduate.”

― Dennis Prager

“People can be too harsh, especially with social media. It brings a person down.”

― Deontay Wilder

“Social media allowed us to become our own storytellers. With it, we seized the power of our truth.”

― Dhani Harrison

“I understand the visual media very well, as I used to write comic books for Walt Disney, and I’ve written a graphic novel. How you carry a story in pictures is different than how you do it in text.”

― Diane English

“I do find that the mainstream media oftentimes is what I would consider off base or has a bias.”

― Dick Cheney

“For many people, when they come to Twitter, the language is opaque. We need to push the scaffolding to the background and bring the content forward. The media, the photos, the videos.”

― Dick Costolo

“I just want to be seen as what I am – just look beyond TV/social media, and you will see what kind of person I am.”

― Dillian Whyte

“There is a real hunger for information about Obama and a sense that information is not being covered or, in some cases, even being withheld. There is a sense that there are elements of the media that are protective of Obama, that they would rather block a story that is embarassing about Obama than let the American public decide.”

― Dinesh D’Souza

“Contrary to what we learn from progressives in education and the media, the history of the Democratic Party well into the twentieth century is a virtually uninterrupted history of thievery, corruption, and bigotry.”

― Dinesh D’Souza

“I’ve probably got the most eclectic social media there is because it literally goes from hanging out with my son at a park, to, like, Madonna’s house, to a rave in Africa.”

“My whole first season was surreal. My first game was against Detlef Schrempf. There was German media everywhere. It was probably my worst NBA game. It was all a blur.”

― Disha Patani

“I don’t watch the media that much.”

“Today’s fathers are having a rough go being kindly portrayed in the media. Thank God, we do we have President Barack Obama for a national model. He both dotes on and takes a firm loving hand to our first-family daughters.”

― Donna Brazile

“Maybe Drudge is more entertainer than reporter. I imagine he enjoys baiting the mainstream media, then watching it look foolish when his story is debunked.”

― Donna Brazile

“The middle ground in Congress has all but disappeared. The founders intended competing principles and interests to check excesses and create a balance in our politics that would benefit ‘we the people.’ Gerrymandered districts and a hyped-up fight-night media offer a partial explanation of why we seem to have neither checks nor balances.”

― Donna Brazile

“But even after the first week, when Hart got out of the presidential race because of the Washington Post’s threat to reveal a long-term relationship Hart had apparently been having with a prominent Washington woman, the media continued to embellish my past.”

― Donna Rice

“I do a lot of media work, I’ve been investing and I’m involved with real estate. It’s totally different from what I had been doing but I find it challenging and fun. To be honest, I really don’t miss the track. I pretty well accomplished what I set out to do and it was time to move on.”

― Douglas Coupland

“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

“I’m not a communist, just a media theorist.”

― Douglas Rushkoff

“It’s easy to make fun of AOL’s pending purchase of HuffPo. Just like AOL’s purchase of TimeWarner, here we have a new media company – Huffington Post – fooling an old media company, AOL, into overpaying for something that has already peaked.”

― Douglas Rushkoff

“Digital media are biased toward replication and storage. Our digital photos practically upload and post themselves on Facebook, and our most deleted e-mails tend to resurface when we least expect it. Yes, everything you do in the digital realm may as well be broadcast on prime-time television and chiseled on the side of the Parthenon.”

― Douglas Rushkoff

“Healthy debate has been replaced by automatic sensors that eliminate the need for actual talking during a filibuster – a la ‘Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.’ Robust debate is necessary in a democratic society. Instead, our discourse has been relegated to media spin by expert entertainers.”

“When Bush first got elected, the very first time there was talk of going to war with Iraq, the mainstream media gave his position total credibility. I didn’t get it then, and I don’t get it now.”

― Ed Harris

“With every social media, there’s hate and things like that.”

― Ed Oxenbould

“We have to be very cognizant of the fact that 90 percent of the electronic media in this country is owned, operated, programmed, and controlled by conservatives. They made a concerted effort during and before the Reagan years that they were going to get the microphone.”

“My campaign confirmed my belief that although there are bigots in America, whose hateful rhetoric seizes the media’s attention, the vast majority of people do not harbor such prejudice.”

“We Americans typically are more positive about our individual futures, which we have some control over, than we are the nation’s or the world’s, which we see largely through the media prism.”

“News-free existence is not a serious proposal, but it is worth noting that while today’s 24/7 media environment is wonderful in many ways, it can also be like drinking out of a fire hose and intensify a downward reinforcing cycle of despair.”

― Elaine Chao

“The media thinks that only the cutting edge of science, the very latest controversies, are worth reporting on. How often do you see headlines like ‘General Relativity still governing planetary orbits’ or ‘Phlogiston theory remains false’? By the time anything is solid science, it is no longer a breaking headline.”

― Eliezer Yudkowsky

“Politicians and leaders who see the media as ‘the enemy within’ divide society into two clashing cultural camps. Populist demagogues benefit from binary oppositions.”

“Hurricane Irma devastated the U.S. Virgin Islands, leveling homes, knocking out power, and turning the landscape into a ‘battered wasteland’ where some say media coverage was minimal and help was late to arrive.”

“Videos of Antifa violence, some of them doctored, are regularly shared on conservative, pro-Trump and conspiracy theory-pushing websites, often with commentary that suggests the media purposefully ignores those events. These videos often do not often include wider context or numbers.”

― Emma Ishta

“I have two daughters, and they grew up and wanted to get into Instagram, and I didn’t know anything about social media.

“One possible future for WikiLeaks is to morph into a gigantic media intermediary – perhaps, even something of a clearing house for investigative reporting – where even low-level leaks would be matched with the appropriate journalists to pursue and report on them and, perhaps, even with appropriate NGOs to advocate on their causes.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“Social media’s greatest assets – anonymity, ‘virality,’ interconnectedness – are also its main weaknesses.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“The decentralized nature of online conversations often makes it easier to manipulate public opinion, both domestically and globally.

“The Egyptian experience suggests that social media can greatly accelerate the death of already dying authoritarian regimes.”

“What I love about what I get to do is that I’m allowed to create the stories that I want to tell with minimal interference by some very big corporations like Microsoft and Sprint and EA and BioWare.

― Gary Lineker

“Despite recent speculation in the media, and after difficult but sincere consideration, I have decided not to direct ‘Catching Fire.’ As a writer and a director, I simply don’t have the time I need to write and prep the movie I would have wanted to make, because of the fixed and tight production schedule.”

― Gary Ross

“You cannot underestimate people’s ability to spot a soulless, bureaucratic tactic a million miles away. It’s a big reason why so many companies that have dipped a toe in social media waters have failed miserably.”

“To me, mass media is when you are able to use a platform to reach an audience on a large, global scale, and I think YouTube has certainly achieved that and is still finding ways to bring a wider range of content to its audience.”

― Gigi Gorgeous

“I usually stalk fans because I think they’re really funny on Twitter. They don’t know it, but I’ll just go through their timelines, and if something is happening in the media, I always read fan accounts instead of the news because they have all the info and make the funniest jokes about it, so that’s how I get my gossip – by stalking fans.”

― Gigi Hadid

“You’re on set for 15 hours, and then you go home and make sure you’re posting the right stuff on social media, and then you answer your e-mails. It never stops.”

“Not surprisingly, there is a cultural divide between American and British actors regarding the self-promotion associated with new media.”

“I grew up with Scientology – my parents at one point were clerical. It’s a pragmatic philosophy, not merely a belief system. Yeah, it’s had media exposure because certain luminaries do Scientology, but millions of people do it who are not celebrities. It’s not a threat or some cult.”

“The PC rebellion is about a reaction against the media academic complex, which tells us what to say – or else.”

― Greg Gutfeld

“As liberals in charge and a media question the capabilities of police, they then limply ask why there is an anti-police atmosphere or why cops are holding back.”

― Greg Gutfeld

“What a contrast, Trump is feisty but flexible. Obama, cool but rigid. But he had no reason to bend. The media already bought into his shtick. His giddy fan base ate up every white-coated lie.”

― Ivan Krastev

“It seems that in the rush to be the first one to the story, the media overstates things. Not maliciously; I don’t think they’re intentionally misleading. But the credibility gap is already there, and in this rush to get to the story first, a lot of mainstream outlets just erode their credibility further.”

― J. D. Vance

“Performance art can involve the audience with taste, smell and sounds not available with electronic media and not practical with conventional theater. This is due to the usually small audience.”

“I don’t want to compare President Obama and President Trump on these issues, because they’re different, and the scale isn’t even remotely the same.

“ISIL particularly is very slick, very sophisticated, proselytizing and recruiting, and they are very astute users of social media.”

― James Clapper

“ISIL’s widespread reach through the Internet and social media is most concerning, as the group has proven dangerously competent at employing such tools for its nefarious strategy. ISIL uses high-quality, traditional media platforms as well as widespread social media campaigns to propagate its extremist ideology.”

― James Comey

“As a communication medium, social media is a critical tool for terror groups to exploit.”

― James Comey

“Social media has allowed groups, such as ISIL, to use the Internet to spot and assess potential recruits.

― James Comey

“The media thinks that you have to make science sexy and concentrate on themes such as rivalry and the human issues.”

― Jay Samit

“I think relationships are broken up because of the media.”

“People in the news media after I got caught said how could you have not caught this guy? He had 50 corrections in four years. That’s a lot of corrections. Well what they failed to look at is how many stories there were and out of 700 plus stories, 50 corrections is not a high amount.”

“When I first moved to Hollywood from Silicon Valley, I had some misgivings. But I found that there were some advantages to being in Hollywood. And, in fact, some advantages to owning your own media company. And I also found that Hollywood and Silicon Valley have a lot more in common than I would have dreamed.”

“Democratic societies need a strong media, and WikiLeaks is part of that media.”

― Julian Assange

“As we have seen, WikiLeaks is a robust organization. During my time in solitary confinement in the basement of a Victorian prison, we continue to release, our media partners continued to write stories.

― Jupp Heynckes

“When you become the manager of a leading club, there are so many situations you have to cope with.

“Quite frankly, I talk about the fact that I’m a feminist as often as I can, and every time I do, it gets huge reaction, and media reacts, and the Twitterverse explodes and things like that, because here I am saying I’m a feminist. I will keep saying that until there is no more reaction to that when I say it, because that’s where we want to get to.”

― Kato Kaelin

“’Moral police’ is my new word. I am very against the media doing moral policing, giving opinions on actor’s lives. Media should not become moral police; they should just report.”

― Katrina Kaif

“Ironically, it is only when disaster strikes that the shuttle makes the headlines. Its routine flights attracted less media interest than unmanned probes to the planets or the images from the Hubble Telescope.

― Michael Avenatti

“’The Washington Post’ doesn’t have to report on what I post on Twitter. CNN doesn’t have to report on what I post on Twitter.

― Ryan Holmes

“I’d like to think my company HootSuite is anything but a stodgy old-boys’ club. As a social media company, our employees are by and large young, progressive and open-minded.”

― Ryan Holmes

“Social media has given companies access to unprecedented amounts of information on client behavior and preferences – so-called Big Data. But making sense of it all and turning it into actionable policy has been elusive.”

― Ryan Holmes

“Payfirma has revolutionized the payment process, consolidating mobile, e-commerce and in-store payments under a single solution, much like HootSuite did for social media.”

“People in the media and press often say they’ve never been good at math. It might be that people that consider themselves creative didn’t consider themselves good at math or didn’t find math interesting at those early stages. And those creative people are disproportionately represented in those influential roles.”

― Sal Khan

“I think the next set of media companies are going to be created on the web and that YouTube is going to be a big part of that.”

“I do not believe in censorship, but I believe we already have censorship in what is called marketing theory, namely the only information we get in mainstream media is for profit.”

― Sam Sheppard

“The media is an ally when it comes to showing the truth about terrorist groups. Attacking the media will not produce a more compliant citizenry. It will produce a more alienated, suspicious and disenfranchised public, one more likely to chafe under a government’s attempts at control, all to the benefit of terrorist groups.”

― Samantha Power

“As smartphones have allowed us to have our computers, emails, social media feeds, and a full surveillance system in our pockets at all times, stories of the law enforcement’s unease with that have been popping up in the press.

― Sean Parker

“I think most people aren’t really privy to how stories are developed and what stories are – make it to the front page or to the mainstream media, whether it’s in print or in broadcast. And I think they’d be shocked and disappointed to see some of the bias that exists in some of the stories that don’t get told – or the manner in which they are told.”

― Sean Spicer

“I was increasingly disappointed in how so many of the members here of the media do their job or, rather, don’t do their job: the bias at which they come from it at.”

“I think the media, by and large, if you look at surveys over the years, has never been conservative-leaning by any measure.”

― Sean Spicer

“I was increasingly disappointed how people in the media do their job or, rather, don’t do their job. They are not there for the facts or pursuit of the truth; they are there to see, ‘How do I get on TV or become a YouTube star.’”

― Seth Rollins

“We don’t have all this gay-bashing crime. You don’t see that. It’s not there. That is not really happening in Jamaica. But because a few artists basically sing it and put records out and the media runs with it, then the stigma becomes big, and now we’re trapped with that whole thing. It’s really sad.”

― Shane Smith

“The problem that we’ve had is four media companies run media, globally. And some say they’re on the Right and some say they’re on the Left; look, they’re all afraid of losing Ford as a client. So they’re all, by definition, huge companies that are going to be inherently conservative.”

“I think it’s pretty obvious to most people that Napster is not media specific, but I could see a system like Napster evolving into something that allows users to locate and retrieve different types of data other than just MP3s or audio files.”

― Shawn Fanning

“But I just really think there is a natural extension into other types of media because it’s an excellent system for reliably locating and retrieving content.”

― Shawn Fanning

“Social media companies must combine their mastery of the latest in real-time, location based or augmented reality technologies in the service of clear and consistent storytelling.”

― Simon Mainwaring

“Concerned consumers are realizing that they can use social media to organize themselves around shared values to start effective movements. Social media gives them a sounding board to share ideas, as well as a means to punish irresponsible corporate behaviors.”

― Simon Mainwaring

“Too many brands treat social media as a one way, broadcast channel, rather than a two-way dialogue through which emotional storytelling can be transferred.”

― Simon Mainwaring

“The evolution of social media into a robust mechanism for social transformation is already visible. Despite many adamant critics who insist that tools like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are little more than faddish distractions useful only to exchange trivial information, these critics are being proven wrong time and again.”

― Simon Mainwaring

“The framing of how we relate to each other within and across social media platforms will continue to become more sophisticated and nuanced in their expression of how we structure our relationships in our real world lives.”

― Simon Mainwaring

“By linking with friends and ultimately strangers and building those relationships, social media is reweaving the social fabric that can then be used to scale your non-profit efforts.”

― Simon Mainwaring

“Some critics have challenged what the return on investment is for engagement in social media. Others have complained that the metrics don’t exist to demonstrate value.”

― Simon Mainwaring

“For decades, media companies have largely controlled the tools through which consumers were told what to buy, wear or think. Now consumers possess the same ability to produce, distribute and curate content and distribute it to their peers in real time across social media platforms.”

― Simon Mainwaring

“Brands must be very specific in their choice of social media platforms through which to communicate their CSR or cause messaging.”

― Simon Mainwaring

“As more people use social media to tell the story of the future, the wants and needs of more people will be reflected.”

― Simon Mainwaring

“The most potentially transformative impact of social media is its ability to encourage brands to marry profit and purpose. The reason brands participate is that such outreach earns those companies social currency enabling them to start or participate in conversations that connect them to consumers in meaningful ways.”

― Simon Mainwaring

“Radical transparency has an enormous impact on our personal lives. We can no longer share thoughts, quips, photos or personal opinions anywhere on the web without being mindful that they may turn up where we least expect it (notably job interviews, divorce proceedings or public media).”

― Stanley Crouch

“It shifted attention away from that and I’ve never been someone who liked the attention from the media anyway.”

― Steffi Graf

“It became very clear to me that Yooralla was not as interested in media coverage that explored issues faced by people with disability as it was in giving a pat on the back to journalists who maintained the status quo by giving readers the warm and fuzzies over their morning paper.”

― Stella Young

“The Paralympics have for too long been considered the poor cousin of the Olympics. It’s always run after the main games and rarely gets anything like the media coverage.”

― Stella Young

“We’ve got to make sure we keep the media attention on us; being on telly and in the papers gets people interested.”

“I have to keep performing well for club and country. That’s what I always want to do. If I do that, then that extra media attention comes towards me.”

― Steph Houghton

“Usually, Valentine’s Day comes and goes with just a day or two of news media attention to courtship and marriage.”

― Stephanie Coontz

“The media here is the opposition party. They don’t understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States.”

“What the media misses is the amount of anger that’s out there. Trump didn’t create that.”

― Steve Bannon

“Technology not only allows grassroots conservatives like Palin to get their message across without the mainstream media’s filter and become a ‘force multiplier,’ it also helps them topple candidates financially backed by the establishment.”

― Steve Bannon

“The American television industry is a Darwinian environment where success is usually measured in inches, not yards. That is, for most TV media, audiences have gotten so small that one measures ‘victories’ in tenths of a point – as in, a 2.2 percent share is a great leap over a 2.1 percent share.”

― Steve Bannon

“Ethno-nationalism – it’s losers. It’s a fringe element. I think the media plays it up too much, and we gotta help crush it, you know, eh, help crush it more.”

“Terrorist bombings, like rampage shootings, are events that maximize the amount of publicity per amount of damage. That’s why people do them, because they know they will set off a media frenzy.”

― Steven Weber

“Social media has created a legion of social delinquents, billions of people speaking not their minds but their spleens, venting everything from the gum-cracking snark befitting a hair-twisting mallrat to the froth-flecked rage of a bell tower marksman.”

― Steven Weber

“When I did ‘Jerry Springer: The Opera,’ there was a big fuss, largely centered around the misrepresentation of its content. Had Twitter existed then, that would have been over in a week because people who had actually seen it would have been able to get control of the story through social media.”

― Sue Gardner

“I might not be over-enthusiastic about socialising and making friends, but I am not a loner. I love hanging out with my friends, and I do it often when I am not working. Maybe, since I am not often invited to the ‘happening’ parties of our industry, where the media is around, I have earned the reputation of being a loner.”
