Quote

  • "The media is more powerful than our government institutions, but we are squandering that power." (1999)[citation needed]
  • "We are in the process of creating what deserves to be called the idiot culture. Not an idiot sub-culture, which every society has bubbling beneath the surface and which can provide harmless fun; but the culture itself. For the first time, the weird and the stupid and the coarse are becoming our cultural norm, even our cultural ideal."[1][2]
