Examples of publisher in a Sentence

  1. Barry Pollack:

    We've had no communication with the Department of Justice and they have not indicated to me that they have brought any charges against Mr. Assange, they've been unwilling to have any discussion at all, despite our repeated requests, that they let us know what Mr. Assange's status is in any pending investigations. There's no reason why WikiLeaks should be treated differently from any other publisher.

  2. Roger Stone:

    I have testified truthfully before the House Intelligence Committee that Randy Credico was the source who confirmed Assange's June 2016 CNN interview in which the Wikileaks publisher said he had substantial information on Hillary Clinton, as I testified Randy Credico told me this material would be released in October. I now realize that Credico's source was a Wikileaks lawyer and not Assange himself. At no time did Randy Credico tell me what the source, content or scope of the WikiLeaks disclosures would be. I would note that Randy Credico has avoided testifying on these matters under oath. If Randy Credico is compelled to testify I would urge Randy Credico to simply tell the truth.

  3. Jacinda Ardern:

    We can not simply sit back and accept that these platforms just exist and that what is said on them is not the responsibility of the place where they are published, they are the publisher. Not just the postman.

  4. Loren Weisman:

    Is marketing the only message your audience is receiving? Consider becoming the author and publisher of your story, over just another person trying to sell a book with the same old ads, hype pr and spam style ads that are used by so many.

  5. Justice William O. Douglas:

    Once the government can demand of a publisher the names of the purchasers of his publication, the free press as we know it disappears. Then the spectre of a government agent will look over the shoulder of everyone who reads. ... Fear of criticism goes with every person into the bookstall. The subtle, imponderable pressures of the orthodox lay hold. Some will fear to read what is unpopular, what the powers-that-be dislike. ... fear will take the place of freedom in the libraries, book stores, and homes in the land.
