"Creative people thrive on serendipity, spontaneous interactions, moments of ribald humor, intense debate or just simple eye contact, and I felt as if I was losing myself. I decided that it was time to act. So I tried an experiment. I just stopped saying yes and started saying no to things."
"TV is stuck in a rut and no-one behind the cameras appears to have the gumption or desire to change this state of affairs. Be it “balanced” debates or the inability to give an interview the time to breath and develop, TV has developed a stock of cliches which is driving viewers away. Remember that line above about smart, intelligent and savvy viewers above? The problem is that many TV makers are just not prepared to accept that those very same smart, intelligent and savvy viewers might want something other than what they have at the moment. Or that they have the wherewithall to stick with a topic for more than a few minites. Or if they want to hear Pussy Riot, that they’ll be happy with a voiceover or subtitles as long as the questions are good."
