This is a tough environment, and it's tough for everybody.

Surveys have shown going back as far as you and I can remember that people have perceived a leftward tilt in the basic coverage that they get on TV news.

Brit Hume

Some in journalism consider themselves apart from and to some extent above the people they purport to serve.

Brit Hume

If the markets had behaved badly, that would obviously add to people's sense of alarm... but there has been a lot of reassurance coming, particularly in the way the Brits handled all this. There seems to be no great fear that something like that is going to happen here.

I think we have a wide variety of voices, and if you look at our news coverage day in and day out, I think it's down the middle and fair.

Brit Hume

The Clinton administration hated us, and it was a terrible struggle with them. I think that they felt if they didn't play, they could strangle us in our crib.

Brit Hume

We have a society in which one of the greatest things you can do is a platform to see victim status, and one of the qualifications for that is that you have these exquisitely tender feelings about things and sensibilities which are easily offended.

Geraldo has been in Lebanon. He has done some excellent reporting out of there, and of course, we now know by virtue of the president's speech on Tuesday night that the terrorist organizations that operate in that area are now on the list.

You know, the market was down yesterday... my first thought when I heard-just on a personal basis, when I heard there had been this attack and I saw the futures this morning, which were really in the tank, I thought, Time to buy.

Brit Hume

People realized that they could come on Fox News Sunday, and they would be well and fairly treated.

Brit Hume

When you're five years old, and you're running a business that people did not think there was room for, getting attention is not a bad thing. Letting it be known by whatever colorful language is necessary is not a bad thing.

Brit Hume

We had a couple of minor coups that made a big difference. We snared away from a competitor a correspondent already on the ground in Afghanistan. That was an enormous help to us, because there we were.

Brit Hume

Our emphasis on political coverage from the day we were born here was well-founded, and we believe there were opportunities there that we could do it in a more interesting, appealing and balanced way.

Brit Hume

The month of January, we were number one. Now, this is something we're proud of, because we recognize we're up against a formidable operation there at CNN.

Brit Hume

We've had a chance to be seen by viewers who had never seen us before, and we've kept a lot of them.

Brit Hume

If it comes to be believed that we are simply a propaganda organ of some kind, as a lot of people believe about some of our competitors, that would be a problem.

Brit Hume

My sense about Greta is that people ought to wait and see and see if she doesn't indeed turn out to be as balanced as we hope and expect she will. But there you are.

Brit Hume

You must qualify when a major story breaks, and you don't have to reach out and grab people by the lapels to get their attention.

Brit Hume

I think that to the extent that the president flinched, he flinched on this point, and that is he decided it had to be a woman and/or a minority.

Brit Hume

Nobody's profitable at this moment, because recession is on; advertising dollars are down, and expenses are way up. So that kind of belies the situation that you would expect, because the ratings are way up everywhere.

Brit Hume

Television has certain imperatives that CNN had the luxury of ignoring for a long period of time. CNN could take the position that the news would be the star, because in most of the programming day, they were the only all-news operation on the air.

Brit Hume

We've had a series of major news stories that have brought in viewers who either were sampling to see what else was available or were normal news watchers. The Florida recount and the end of the election was a huge development. And then 9/11 came along.

Brit Hume

We need more foreign reach; no question about that. And we're working on getting that. We need more people abroad; we need some more bureaus. That is really an important job.

Brit Hume

In the end, you make your reputation and you have your success based upon credibility and being able to provide people who are really hungry for information what they want.

Brit Hume

I think we're giving people something new that people didn't know was out there before.
