A BUZZFLASH INTERVIEW

I think we have proven that, given an opportunity, we can win. We can build an audience. We can hold an audience. We can make money. We can be successful in talk radio. We have disproven the old theory that liberals can't do talk radio. That's why I feel good about talk radio.

-- Bill Press, Emmy winner, Author, Talk-Radio Host, Former Chair, California Democratic Party

At times there would be students who didn't want to talk to me. It was because they just didn't want to risk messing up their resumes. ... they didn't want to say things that might come back to haunt them politically. At nineteen, they are already thinking about their future political career.

We're not just computing brains. We're also sensory and emotional creatures. When we come to media, we're along for the ride, and the quality of the ride is not just a function of its truth value, it's also a function of its emotional and sensational value.
