How to use director in a sentence?

  1. Hunter S. Thompson:

    Gonzo journalism is a style of reporting based on William Faulkner's idea that the best fiction is far more true than any kind of journalism -- and the best journalists have always known this. True gonzo reporting needs the talents of a master journalist, the eye of an artist/photographer and the heavy balls of an actor. Because the writer must be a participant in the scene, while he's writing it -- or at least taping it, or even sketching it. Or all three. Probably the closest analogy to the ideal would be a film director/producer who writes his own scripts, does his own camera work and somehow manages to film himself in action, as the protagonist or at least a main character.

  2. Daniel Bible:

    A man was detained shortly after the shooting but was released after authorities determined he was not connected to the incident. ICE did not respond to a Fox News request for comment Tuesday. Daniel Bible, the field office director for the agencys enforcement and removal operations in San Antonio, blamed the shootingon elected officials, the media and activists for a breakdown inpolitical discourse that has encouraged violent acts. Political rhetoric and misinformation that various politicians, media outlets and activist groups recklessly disseminate to the American people regarding the ICE mission only serve to further encourage these violent acts, iCE officers put their lives on the line each and every day to keep our communities safe. This disturbing public discourse shrouds our critical law enforcement function and unnecessarily puts our officers safety at risk.

  3. Mark Warner:

    I stand by the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee investigation, which confirmed the Intelligence Committee's assessment that it was Russia, i stand by the Mueller report, which confirms that it was Russia that intervened. I stand by Mr. Trump's appointees as head of the CIA, head of the FBI, director of national intelligence, who have all testified publicly that it was Russia.

  4. Robbie Collin:

    It's the most exciting press conference I have been at, I think. Cannes isn't known for its revelatory press conferences but that felt like a weird cinematic event in itself, what remains fascinating about Godard and his work, is that is he is the only director in competition so far, possibly the only one in the entire festival, whose films defy being chewed over in the course of a tweet or a thread of tweets.

  5. Paul Ryan:

    This decision, long overdue, is the result of her reckless use of a private email server, and her refusal to be forthcoming with federal investigators, i renew my call for the Director of National Intelligence to suspend all classified briefings for Bill Clinton until this matter is fully resolved.
