The biases the media has are much bigger than conservative or liberal.
They're about getting ratings, about making money,
about doing stories that are easy to cover.
- Al Franken

The thing that interests me least about the radio business is the radio business.
But I've had to learn a little bit about it.
It's not rocket science: You get ratings,
that's good.
- Al Franken

We need to be pro-science; we have to go back to science.
- Al Franken

Mistakes are a part of being human.
Appreciate your mistakes for what they are:

others can learn from.
- Al Franken

I once asked the most fabulous couple I know,
Madonna and Guy Ritchie, how they kept things fresh
despite having been married for almost seven months.
'It's a job, Al,' Guy told me.
'We work at it every day.'
- Al Franken

Yeah, but you need an experienced radio veteran who is a liberal advocate.
And there just hadn't been any radio that did that.
And so they weren't trained - they had developed all
these bad habits of being objective and balanced and stuff like that.
- Al Franken

But in the right-wing media, they do have a right-wing bias.
And they also have an agenda.
So their agenda is: we're an adjunct of the Republican Party,
and we're going push that agenda every day,
and, as you say, brand these stories that help further the right-wing cause.
- Al Franken

I also focus on Bush and his administration -
who do a lot of lying -
and how a right-wing media has allowed them to get
away with a lot of stuff that,
in a different media environment, they probably wouldn't
be able to get away with.
- Al Franken

The point is that there is tremendous hypocrisy among the Christian right.
And I think that Christian voters should start looking
at global warming and extreme poverty as a religious
issue that speaks to the culture of life.
- Al Franken

The right wing has had a radio apparatus for years and years,
so they've had minor leagues - they've had local rightwing
guys who've become national rightwing guys,
and who build slowly, and that's how it goes.
We haven't had that.
It isn't like we have a farm team.
- Al Franken

The next thing I am doing is moving back home to Minnesota
and getting involved in politics.
I'm looking at a run for Senate in 2008,
but in the meantime I am focused on knitting together
the progressive network in the upper Midwest.
- Al Franken

Well, a lot of politics is communicating with people,
and obviously comedy has something to do with that.
I've been a producer and led people.
Also, being a comedian, you're under pressure.
- Al Franken

And I think that being able to make people laugh and
write a book that's funny makes the information go
down a lot easier and it makes it a lot more fun to read,
easier to understand, and often stronger.
So there's all kinds of advantages to it.
- Al Franken

If you hear, day after day, liberals are rooting against armed forces,
that is eventually going to have an effect on soldiers
and troops who are actually going to believe that and it's wrong.
It's just wrong.
- Al Franken

To make the argument that the media has a left-
or right-wing,
or a liberal or a conservative bias,
is like asking if the problem with Al-Qaeda is do they
use too much oil in their hummus.
- Al Franken

Yeah, we shot ourselves in the foot right out of the gate.
The guy who ran it at first misled pretty much everybody
about how much capital we had.
He said we had enough to go three years without making money,
and we had enough to go three weeks.
- Al Franken

To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children,
to leave the world a better place,
to know even one life has breathed easier
because you have lived,
this is to have succeeded.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

To leave the world a bit better ...
to know that one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.

breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.

In smaller issues, take an easier course.

In many ways, it is easier to be a good giver than a good receiver.
The giver chooses the gift and the timing.
More important, societal and religious traditions
tend to elevate the status of giver and lower the status of receiver.
When the Bible (Acts 20:32-35) speaks of it being
more blessed to give than to receive,
I believe that a better translation might be
"take" rather than "receive," as the context
of that passage is "coveting."
Certainly there is nothing blessed about coveting,
stealing, begging, or demanding,
however the skill of graciously receiving a freely offered gift
is another matter entirely.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

In soloing - as in other activities -
it is far easier to start something
than it is to finish it.

and if he happens to be tall,
debonair and devastating,
it will be that much easier.

- Howard Nemerov

Art hurts.
Art urges voyages - and it is easier to stay at home.
- Gwendolyn Brooks

It is easier for a father to have children than for
children to have a real father.
- Pope John XXIII

It's easier to force feed people than it is to give 'em what they want.
It makes more money.
- Merle Haggard

It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend.
- William Blake

While you can and should keep your composure and happiness
regardless of circumstances - regardless of your friends,
family and co-workers - regardless of gossip, sarcasm, and negativity.
Nonetheless, life is much easier and more pleasant
when you spend as much time as possible
in the company of enthusiastic positive people -
not necessarily those who agree with you,
but those who respect your right to your point of view.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

It is much easier to become a father than to be one.
- Kent Nerburn

I get along with guys; most of my friends are guys.
It's easier to trust men sometimes.
I only have a few close girlfriends that I trust.
- Paris Hilton

Computers make it easier to do a lot of things,
but most of the things they make it easier to do don't need to be done.
- Andy Rooney

It is easier to lead men to combat, stirring up their passion,
than to restrain them and direct them toward the patient labors of peace.

There are no sermons in stones.
It is easier to get a spark out of a stone than a moral.

By the second day you're off it.

For me it's better to ski fast.

You get your emotion out.
You scream.
You yell.
You do whatever you want.
You play.
But it's tough to sit.
- Goran Ivanisevic

If you change the belief first, changing the action is easier.
- Peter McWilliams

Comedy is much more difficult than tragedy-and a much better training,
I think.
It's much easier to make people cry than to make them laugh.
- Vivien Leigh

Well, I think that it is complicated in that the first
four albums were all with Universal so they have the
rights to that and therefore it is a lot easier for them to do that period.
