Quoted: Greta Van Susteren on how to use celebrity status


“If you don’t grab an issue… you paralyze us. We have a hard time covering them. I love your work, but I’d rather use you to help me do my work… And If you get arrested, that’s great. Anytime it’s for starvation and dying children, that’s great. And by the way, I’m a criminal defense attorney.”
