The Best Notable Quotables of 2001:

The Fourteenth Annual Awards for the
Year’s Worst Reporting

Too Late for the Ballot,
But Year End "Best of NQ" Worthy:

First Place

Persecuting Clinton Allowed 9/11
"It was a huge national distraction, going after a guy who lied about getting oral sex from a woman he wasn’t married to, and I think I know a million guys who get oral sex from a woman they weren’t married to....All of us have a shared guilt right now, and the shared guilt is for the last ten years we have been horribly distracted. I would bet you that I can find you 4,000, 5,000 FBI agents who wish to God they weren’t assigned to Whitewater, Monicagate, Bill Clinton – that instead they were on the trail of Osama bin Laden and the people who were plotting mass murder against us."
– Geraldo Rivera on the Nov. 15 O’Reilly Factor on FNC.
Homegrown Few = Al Qaeda
"Since September 11, the word ‘terrorist’ has come to mean someone who is radical, Islamic and foreign. But many believe we have as much to fear from a home-grown group of anti-abortion crusaders."
– Reporter Jami Floyd on ABC’s 20/20, November 28.
