Memorable Quotes:

“To me, there is value in bearing witness to what is happening to people who are living their lives with great dignity in the face of horror. People have asked me why I would want to go to Iraq. To me, it’s a privilege to be able to do that.”

“I’d always been interested in travel and dark places on the map. I wanted to see these places and learn things about myself, as well as the people in them. So what I started doing was going to wars with my video camera.”

“Neither of my parents believed in joining clubs or being involved in anything that reeked of elitism or exclusiveness. Growing up,’elitest’ was the worst thing you could say about someone.”

About his work on Hurricane Katrina, Cooper told the New York Times, “This is life and death. This is not some blow-dried pundit standing outraged for some ratings, which is what cable news often boils down to….I have been tearing up on this story more than any story I’ve worked on…It’s hard not to be moved.”

Some of his quotes are pretty out there. He say he is not a rating hungry pundant, but some of things he says doesn’t back that up at all.

P.S. love the back ground on your blog.
