I cover media people the way they cover politicians.
I follow my conscience - and this is upsetting to some people, but I maintain the conscience is going to be the only thing between us and communication in the future.
All truths begin as hearsay, as far as I'm concerned.
The media is comparable to government-probably passes government in raw power.
We have entered an era vibrating with the din of small voices. Every citizen can be a reporter, can take on the powers that be.
I do most of my business on that dirty Internet that you were just talking about, where I find there is a lot of freedom to report exactly what I want.
Television saved the movies. The Internet is going to save the news business.
With a modem, anyone can follow the world and report on the world-no middle man, no big brother. I guess this changes everything.
A lot of the stories are internal. They leak it to me wanting to get attention, wanting to get that headline. More times than not, I will not give it to them.
I was first to break the news about the death of Lady Diana. The CNN team couldn't get into makeup fast enough.
I didn't go to the right schools, didn't come from a well-known family, nor was I even remotely connected to a powerful publishing dynasty.
Because I have success, it doesn't mean I'm part of the mainstream. I'm still an outsider.
If technology has finally caught up with individual liberty, why would anyone who loves freedom want to rethink that?
It seems to me we are losing our way in an effort to get the ratings.
I want one place I can go that is not going to be lewd, and I'm not sure there is anything left.
