Quotes about the Media

The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power. Because they control the minds of the masses.”

 Malcolm X quotes

All of us who professionally use the mass media are the shapers of society. We can vulgerize that society. We can brutalize it. Or we can help lift it onto a higher level.”

 William Bernbach quotes

      “All media exist to invest our lives with artificial perceptions and arbitrary values”

 Marshall McLuhan quotes

      “The media tends to report rumors, speculations, and projections as facts… How does the media do this? By quoting some “expert”… you can always find some expert who will say something hopelessly hopeless about anything.”

 Peter McWilliams quotes

“The news media are, for the most part, the bringers of bad news… and it’s not entirely the media’s fault, bad news gets higher ratings and sells more papers than good news.”

 Peter McWilliams quotes

“The media’s power is frail. Without the people’s support, it can be shut off with the ease of turning a light switch.”

 Corazon Aquino quotes

Cinema, radio, television, magazines are a school of inattention: people look without seeing, listen in without hearing.”

 Robert Bresso

     “In day-to-day commerce, television is not so much interested in the business of communications as in the business of delivering audiences to advertisers. People are the merchandise, not the shows. The shows are merely the bait.”
