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.
I'm not anti-Jewish; I'm anti-Zionist.
All presidents rail against the press. It goes with the turf.
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.
Congress, the White House, and Hollywood, Wall Street, are owned by the Zionists.
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 deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians. They do not reflect my heart-felt belief that peace will come to the Middle East only when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.
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.
This is the worst President ever. He George W. Bush is the worst President in all of American history.

You don't spread democracy through the barrel of a gun.
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.
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.
If we care about the children, the grandchildren, the future generations, we need to make sure that they do not become the cannon fodder of the future.
