I don't think a tough question is disrespectful.
We don't go into journalism to be popular. It is our job to seek the truth and put constant pressure on our leaders until we get answers.

We are the only institution in our society that can question a president on a regular basis and make him accountable. Otherwise, he could be king.
You cannot have a democracy without an informed people.
Everyone with a cell phone thinks they're a photographer. Everyone with a laptop thinks they're a journalist. But they have no training, and they have no idea of what we keep to in terms of standards, as in what's far out and what's reality. And they have no dedication to truth.
Don't let the politicians chip away at the New Deal and the Great Society programs like Social Security and Medicare, that puts a floor beyond which the elderly, the sick, the powerless do not starve or lack for medicine or shelter.
All presidents rail against the press. It goes with the turf.
Every president thinks that all information that comes to the White House is their private preserve after they all promise an open administration on the campaign trail, but some are more secretive than others. Some want to lock down everything.
I don't think there are any rude questions.
I'm not anti-Jewish; I'm anti-Zionist.

We in the press have a special role since there is no other institution in our society that can hold the President accountable. I do believe that our democracy can endure and prevail only if the American people are informed.
I respect the office of the presidency, but I never worship at the shrines of our public servants...The Washington press corps has the privilege of asking the president of the United States what he is doing and why.
I got into the Kennedy White House because at the time I was president of the Women's National Press Club, and they assigned me to cover the early days of the Kennedy campaign. Jackie especially. Everyone was interested in the family.

We are owned by propagandists against the Arabs. There's no question about that. Congress, the White House, and Hollywood, Wall Street, are owned by the Zionists. No question in my opinion. They put their money where their mouth is...We're being pushed into a wrong direction in every way.
Congress, the White House, and Hollywood, Wall Street, are owned by the Zionists.
This is the worst President ever. He George W. Bush is the worst President in all of American history.
