Noah Vosen: Our target is a British national - Simon Ross, a reporter. I want all his phones, his BlackBerry, his apartment, his car, bank accounts, credit cards, travel patterns - I want to know what he's going to think before he does. Every dirty little secret he has, and most of all we want the name and real-time location of his source. This is NSA priority level 4. Any questions?
Noah Vosen: You know as well as I do decisions made in real time are never perfect. Don't second guess an operation from an armchair.
Edward R. Murrow: Funny thing, Freddie, every time you light a cigarette for me, I know you're lying.
William Paley: There's a Knickerbocker game tonight, I've got front row seats. Are you interested?
Edward R. Murrow: I'm a little busy bringing down the network tonight, Bill.
Edward R. Murrow: We have currently a built-in allergy to unpleasant or disturbing information. Our mass media reflect this. But unless we get up off our fat surpluses and recognize that television in the main is being used to distract, delude, amuse, and insulate us, then television and those who finance it, those who look at it, and those who work at it, may see a totally different picture too late.
