As you may have heard, Sen. Ted Cruz this week officially joined the 2016 GOP primary scrum in a fancy to-do at Liberty University -- a fitting venue for Cruz to lay down the foundation of his pitch to the conservative base. But what Cruz did next was very puzzling: He signed up for Obamacare. A loud chorus of "Duh fuh?" ensued.
Remember that post-2012 RNC "autopsy" that was supposed to expand the party? Now comes contender Cruz who wants the base to vote, not grow. Ron Christie & Gara LaMarche debate whether he's the party's RX or poison. And has Baker's break with Bibi created a problem for "Bush45"?
That's technology for you. We all like the idea of the driverless car. Except it is the end of the careers of truck drivers, taxi drivers, bus drivers and so on. So too with the smart phone.
Stephen A. Smith is just the latest in a long line to peddle the delusion that the GOP can change its ways and become an open-arms party for blacks.
It feels like Hollywood is finally starting to get what so many of us knew all along; audiences want to see diversity. Yet somehow, at this exciting moment of progress for the industry, Deadline Hollywood found it appropriate to publish what can only be described as a call for regression.
These stories have done more than just educate and inspire women to take their lives into their own hands; they have been the catalyst that has ignited and continues to ignite social and governmental change.
Some editors at the New York Times seem to have either developed a severe case of institutional amnesia, or decided to confer the presumption of innocence upon cellphone radiation, as the newspaper did upon asbestos for an entire decade after the mineral had been shown to be the most important industrial carcinogen in the world.
In the 2012 presidential election, the candidates all remained mum about climate change. Neither the reporters who followed them nor the moderators of the official presidential debates called them out on the issue. Responsible journalists simply cannot let that be the case this time.
The "Grow Your Value" bonus competition drives home the message that it is important for women to both learn their value and communicate it effectively.
I've been thinking about Colbie Caillat's song, "Try," ever since it came out on the radio. I kept writing it down in my notes on my iPhone to remind myself that this song, and the message it sends, should be acknowledged.
As consumers become more apt to swap the click of a remote for the opening of a laptop or tablet to "tune in", brands will need to reassess how they buy and place their media.
These states, with their history of hatred and discrimination, have the audacity to say they are disciples of Jesus and practice the principles of the Bible.
With a few ridiculously backward paragraphs and veiled and not-so-veiled claims of reverse racism at its finest, Deadline TV editor Nellie Andreeva made sure that the Hollywood portal looked as dated and as zombie-like as the WordPress website it sits on.
How can Klingenschmitt's latest statement possibly be ignored? He isn't another right-wing nut on YouTube. He's an elected official making laws under the gold dome in Denver. Where's the outrage by reporters and other watchdogs? If Klingenschmitt is going to politicize a horrific tragedy in the name of his anti-choice agenda, he should be called out.
In looking for more images that tell a story we may find ourselves forced to dig deeper and our writing may get better, too. It may also make news and opinion writing more fulfilling and representative. After all, what haven't we said already?
