“The media is only as liberal as the corporations that own it. Our media is biased in one way — towards ratings. The ‘liberal media’ lie is the best narrative the status quo ever came up with. We now have a media that’s not liberal, but is terrified of being called liberal and bends over backwards time and time again to prove it’s not. I will believe the American media is liberal the day they cover an anti-war demonstration with the same ferocity they cover tea party rallies.” — John Fugelsang

"The irony is Jesus would be way too liberal for most of his current fan clubs." — John Fugelsang
