Zitat des Tages von David Brock:
It's all a sham: I have seen, and I know firsthand, indeed from my own pen, how the organized Right has sabotaged not only journalism but also democracy and truth.
Our nation marches closer to Trumpism each day, a path paved with reckless Tweets and the normalization of the ugly and the absurd.
I was a bad journalist.
Editors of conservative magazines aren't out trying to raise money. The money is there; the cash reserves are in the bank.
The right can distort anything it wants.
I'm an incredibly hard worker, I'm incredibly tenacious, and I'm incredibly detail-oriented.
Trump's opinions on the Iraq War have been as erratic as his opinions on other foreign policy matters - such as his careless position to think more countries should acquire nuclear weapons.
When I founded Media Matters, there was another model, which would have been to call this the Brock Report. But I was much less interested in my own profile by that point, because I had already done that once, and it was not terribly fulfilling at the end of the day.
Trump's rise to power, fueled by hatred and portending crisis, threatens to eviscerate our constitutional system of government.
You have to create public activist pressure on papers like the 'New York Times' to keep them accountable.
I want an audience that's passionate, that can be engaged.
Republicans tend to be more steadfast in their allegiance, and Democrats read one headline in the 'New York Times,' and the sky is suddenly falling.
I made the apologies that needed to be made, and so I didn't feel that Media Matters was a continuing form of saying I was sorry.
You get to a point where the factual adjudication doesn't matter because there are all these other outlets that are far less responsible, all talking about the ad, some of which have a political reason for promoting it.
I didn't say a bad thing about 'Politico' in my book.
I was one of the most visible and vocal advocates of Secretary Hillary Clinton.
The truth is that the more responsible the media outlet, the more responsive they are to constructive criticism.
Trump apologized for nothing, including the horrible tape, right? No apology.
Progressive politics in America is an organizational disaster.
I'm a former, living, breathing, right-wing conspirator.
The press are animals, and they need to be treated that way.
During the '90s the flow of misinformation was established.
Progressives want a different sort of media than what the Right wants.
What led to my change of views about the Clintons was working through the research and writing on the book on Hillary.
I've been interested in watching the level of conservative misinformation that circulates through the media.
Eventually the story would spill over into the regular media.
There's every financial incentive in the world to stay in the conservative movement forever.
Aside from Donald Trump, the Clintons are the best for ratings and click-throughs.
When you imagine the Koch brothers, it's hard not to think of the 1983 film 'Trading Places,' which featured as its villains a pair of brothers, commodity brokers named Randolph and Mortimer Duke.
It turns out that the Republican Party is not a hero to anyone but the racist, xenophobic caricature of a candidate that is Donald Trump.
We have a moral responsibility to stand up to Donald Trump, and that's what we're going to do.
I have conservative relatives. I maintain some relationships with some conservatives going back to the 1990s... Not in any meaningful way.
When it comes to Republican debates, fibs and fits come first; facts come last.
I think the Democratic Party has to learn how to be a party of opposition.
I think the Republicans are trying to learn from their mistakes about attacks on women because the women's vote will backfire.
I didn't wake up one day and say, you know, 'Supply-side economics doesn't make sense.'
