Media: Chatter

"It kills me that we can't have an ad during The X Factor or Coronation Street. Word of mouth and promoting the show is essential." - The Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles appears to be oblivious to the amount of free advertising he gets on primetime BBC1

"Horseshit. It's complete and utter crap. We're colleagues. I don't necessarily want to marry him. Do you want to marry everyone you work with?" - Roger Alton, the editor of The Observer, plays down rumours of a rift with The Guardian's editor, Alan Rusbridger, over the paper's switch to the Berliner format

"I'm not singularly motivated by money, contrary to what people say. If I was, I would not be sitting here, believe me - not that I'm complaining about what I'm paid." - Ofcom's chief executive, Stephen Carter, argues that his £400,000 salary is just about enough to get by on.
