"Do we have … some changing to do because of technology, because of the competition and choice in the marketplace? Absolutely. But is there a thirst for information that TV news can help satisfy? I believe so without a doubt."
— John King
"The nature of how we have a public dialogue about the issues of the day is actually becoming more robust, and that can happen best … between the Web and TV."
— Steve Grove
