"There's no news, boys, so go out there and make some news." -- Fred Friendly, 'Good Night and Good Luck'

TV Jeremy Paxman's James MacTaggart Memorial Lecture in full: "The difficulty is that I see precious little evidence that anyone is grappling with this question. In fact, I don’t see much evidence anyone knows which way is up. Or to put it another way, it’s not that the television industry doesn’t have a compass. It’s that too often it doesn’t even seem sure any longer that North exists. [...] There has been a catastrophic, collective loss of nerve." [via]
