Trump is often called "crazy," but there is method to his madness, and that method is matched and displayed by the speaking style he employs on the stump. Even his detractors see that a large part of his appeal is that he comes across as unscripted.
Bob Takes on Gun-Worshiping Facebook Troll; Alex Jones Reacts to Virginia By Attacking Hillary Clinton; Chez Has Had Enough of Everything; The Second Amendment is the NRA's Skeleton Key; and much more.
I need to highlight the issue that underlies this debate, and has fueled the decades of hostility towards trans women of all ages -- misogyny.
We have to come to terms with the dismaying truth that public opinion, in individuals and in aggregate, is only exceptionally the outcome of an informed and thoughtful process of deliberation.
It's finally available, to demonstrate how we can all become MOJOs, with a cautionary note that it's not just technical skills that count, but a good basis in journalism. The "it" is the long-awaited MOJO: The Mobile Journalism Handbook (How to Make Broadcast Videos With an iPhone or iPad).
For the sake of the Al Jazeera journalists and media freedom in Egypt at large, Amnesty International is working to resuscitate the lifeline between the truth and truth seekers.
New Orleans is a tale of 200,000 cities. That's how many people were left in New Orleans post-Katrina. After the diaspora, each of them became a city unto themselves. And each has lived a lifetime in the last 10 years.
I fell in love with the glamour of two individuals from completely different walks of life blending together on ABC during the 1990s. I related to Angela's shortcomings, her ethnicity and the fact that, like her, I too was often the signature black girl in the room.
Surely there are children who saw the screenshots from the cover of the New York Daily News, and are asking their parents tough questions this week. But their curiosity and questioning should not make us afraid.
This is about a vicious sense of entitlement to women's minds and bodies by a large population who wield enormous influence over the primary means of communication among human beings. It's not just about hacking a nude photo or revenge porn or the unceasing stream of harassment women receive online.
When the circus comes to town, it stays only a few days, and then leaves. Cognizant of wearing out its welcome, the circus has no illusions about its long-term staying power. And the same is true of Trump.
Joe Little of ABC Channel 10 News in San Diego had it right. He saw no need for media analysis when it came to Vester Flanagan, aka Bryce Williams, who murdered two people and injured a third on air as his camera rolled. He quickly sent the footage to social media.
We have been witnessing the most biased reporting of any election I have ever seen. This isn't only about FOX news spouting lies and bringing racists on to attack President Obama. This is about the media apparently doing all it can to bring down Hillary Clinton.
Over the months, sitting in the courtroom every day, we finally got some answers about the crime and why it happened. But even with light shed on the attack, it could not fill the dark hole in the hearts of the families who lost loved ones.
Despite the tremendous losses suffered during those terrifying days and nights in August ten years ago, we pause to remember those who were lost... celebrate those who survived... and praise those who call New Orleans home.
The live aspect of our business is just one of the many reasons that television news is not for the faint of heart. Nor is it for the thin-skinned. And in the hours after we found out that Adam and Alison's killer was someone who had been a journalist, I had one thought -- he wasn't one of us.
It's a shame the Gazette didn't publish the piece, especially because the anti-Planned Parenthood view dominates the commentary page's official content. And, god knows, the folks in Colorado Springs should hear the other side's opinions too.
This country is crying out for solutions to our myriad problems but our culture often rewards meanness, division and incivility. The emphasis on the latter makes the former all that much more difficult to achieve.
