War coverage should be more than a parade of retired generals and retired government flacks posing as reporters.

Viral Flack quotations

I cop a fair bit of flack for going from 'such a babe to such a boy'.

I wanted to share (that) story.

I used to get some flack from my agents because I wouldn't even audition for parts where the hero uses violent force to be a hero.

Studio press agents make up anything they want to, and reporters go along with it. One flack created the legend that I had been blown up in an air crash during the war, and my face had to be put back together by way of plastic surgery. If it is a 'bionic face,' why didn't they do a better job of it?

I'd sing with Roberta Flack in a taxi if you called up and said she'd be in it.


I think you have a lot of really good artists today.

You have your Beyonce, Usher, Nicki Minaj and the like. But our generation, the artists were stronger. You're talking about myself, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Roberta Flack, Gladys Knight, The Temptations, The Four Tops.

Luther Vandross and I met in Roberta Flack's band.

He was singing background, I was playing bass, and Roberta was beautiful. She's like the mom to all these young musicians in New York. At that time that I met Luther, I was a musician snob. For me, the singers were just the people out in the front to keep the audience entertained. While the musicians did the real work.

What we shouldn't do is victimize and target Muslim communities specifically.

But as things stand, there's one tribunal which has drawn a lot of flack - the Muslim Arbitration Tribunal.

I get flack for saying [when I visit a college and give a speech], "This is a nice college, but the really great educator is McDonald's." They hate me for saying this and think I'm a slimy creature. But McDonald's hires people with bad work habits, trains them, and teaches them to come to work on time and have good work habits. I think a lot of what goes on there is better than at Harvard.

Every movie that I do, I always try and better myself in the next one and try and find a part which is more challenging. It's a little vulnerable to do that, to always push the envelope. You position yourself for a lot more flack or a lot more critique because you're trying to do something different. Sometimes you're good at it and sometimes you're not, but it's a chance you have to take to make life exciting.


Short answers seem like you don't care even if you are trying to answer.

I get the same flack for my short texting.

As an incarnation of love you put up with flack until it becomes detrimental to a person.

I don't actually have anything against anybody, unless their belief precludes everybody else's. I am an atheist and an absurdist and I have been for many years. I've actually taken a huge amount of flack for that.

I think it would be impossible if you had a name like mine not to get a little flack for it.

When Ray Flacke came out, it was like 'What in the heck is this?' .

.. there's a guy who had that Tele players attitude, and he plugged straight into that amp with a delay, and it was unbelievable the way he would bend those big strings ... he was really unique.


Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall take flack from both sides."- Unofficial UN Motto
