Newton N. Minow Quotes

Birth Date: 1926-01-17 (Sunday, January 17th, 1926)



    • When television is good, nothing--not the theater, not the magazines or newspapers--nothing is better. But when television is bad, nothing is worse. I invite you to sit down in front of your television set when your station goes on the air and stay there without a book, magazine, newspaper, profit and-loss sheet or rating book to distract you--and keep your eyes glued to that set until the station signs off. I can assure you that you will observe a vast wasteland.
    • What do we mean by 'the public interest?' Some say the public interest is merely what interests the public. I disagree.
    • We need imagination in programming, not sterility; creativity, not imitation; experimentation, not conformity; excellence, not mediocrity. Television is filled with creative, imaginative people. You must strive to set them free.
    • Sending communications satellites will be much more important than sending man into space because they will send ideas into space. Ideas last longer than men.
    • We've got a real irony here... We have politicians selling access to something we all own- our government. And then we have broadcasters selling access to something we all own- our airwaves. It's a terrible system.
