"That's where left, right agree. They want to put those crooks on Wall Street that crashed the whole economy in jail. Jail time, no bail time." - Ralph Nader
"The alternative universe is very different. Ted Nugent would be on the Supreme Court. We'd be having wars in nine different countries. The auto industry would have been allowed to die. Tax rates for the rich would be at three percent. You can't deny that there also is a difference." - Bill Maher
"It's down to five giant media conglomerates controlling most of the circulation viewers, listenership in America. You know, 40 years ago, there was 50 companies." - Ralph Nader
"HBO is part of Time Warner. Rupert Murdoch could be my boss any minute now.
So, I have two questions for you. One, if they do take this over, I mean, isn't this the end of what we really would call media democracy in America? And, two, do you have the number of the guy at Netflix?" - Bill Maher
"The more the big guys swallow everything, they're going to be more suppressive of diversity and creative artistry. They're going to be more top-down. They're going to be short-sighted. They're going to be more attuned to their advertisers.
