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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

Mistakes are a part of being human.
Appreciate your mistakes for what they are:
precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way.
Unless it's a fatal mistake, which, at least,
others can learn from.
- 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

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.'

Farewell My Friend
It was beautiful as long as it lasted
The journey of my life.
I have no regrets whatsoever
save the pain I'll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care...
And the strings pulling at the heart and soul...
The strong arms that held me up
When my own strength let me down.
At every turning of my life
I came across good friends,
Friends who stood by me,
Even when the time raced me by.
Farewell, farewell my friends
I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears for I need them not
All I need is your smile.
If you feel sad do think of me
for that's what I'll like
when you live in the hearts
of those you love, remember then
you never die.
- Gitanjali Ghei
