Zitat des Tages von Don Lemon:
Most people would think if you're the prime news anchor, then you should sort of be this Edward R. Murrow, Clark Kent guy with the family and 2.5 kids - or the perky, cute yet smart Katie Couric.
I think if I had seen more people like me who are out and proud, it wouldn't have taken me 45 years to say it - to walk in the truth.
Many people who know me call me 'the hardest working man in the news business' because you're never, ever going to outwork me.
It's not ideological to ask someone to stick to the question presented.
I don't consider myself a celebrity. I'm just a journalist.
You don't have true freedom until you allow a diversity of opinion and a diversity of voices.
Any atrocity that's committed against one person affects us all, and we are becoming more of one society, of a global society, so something that happens in the Middle East or something that happens in Africa, something that happens in Asia, affects all of us.
There are features that African Americans have that are similar! There are features that white people have that are similar! Features that Hispanic people have that are similar!
More than 72 percent of children in the African-American community are born out of wedlock. That means absent fathers.

There's a degree of deception in silence.
I was born gay, just as I was born black.
I do feel that Paula Deen should not have lost her job, and I've said this on the air. The marketplace should have decided. The marketplace decided something different. Her books are No. 1.
I think the Casey Anthony trial caught a lot of news organizations off guard.
More often than not, we think of ourselves as black, white, Asian, or Hispanic pretty much in this country, but the real America is much more than that.
Being gay doesn't take your brain away or exclude me from having the same attributes as anyone else.
In general, when I watch cable news during the day, it's frustrating because it reminds me of a game show. If I want to watch 'The Price is Right,' I'll watch 'The Price is Right.'
We aren't as divided as we think we are. We're not just Republicans sitting in one corner, and Democrats sitting in the other corner.
I love Louisiana. There's no place on earth like Louisiana, and there's no city on earth like New Orleans. I grew up in Baton Rouge.
I'm a citizen of the world.
I think it would be great if everybody could be out. But it's such a personal choice. People have to do it at their own speed. I respect that.
I love old school rock and roll.
Governing means governing all of the people, no matter what demographic it is, whether it'd be black, white, women, straight, gay, Republican.
African American history is really American history because African Americans really helped build this country.
When you are the first of anything, there is a bigger responsibility put on you.
If you're going to be in the business of news and telling people the truth... you've got to be honest. You've got to have the same rules for yourself as you do for everyone else.
Paula Deen is a human being. She deserves forgiveness and a chance at redemption as much as anyone else. America is about redemption.
Some people are saying, 'Justin Bieber is racist.' Is he? I don't know.
I grew up believing that I could be the president of the United States. I was told I could be whatever I wanted.
