“I’m certainly not going to take any political advice or direction from The New York Times. I have more contempt for The New York Times than anything or anyone I can think of. People follow what I say. I’m outspoken, but I can back up everything I say. I am what I am, and people seem to like it. I’m at peace with myself.”
– U.S. Rep. Peter King, responding to criticism from the New York Times over his plans to hold hearings into the growing radicalization of American Muslims.
