It shouldn't be controversial to say that at this point in the 2016 race, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton enjoys virtually every possible advantage in the Democratic primary field. She's the best-known candidate with the highest level of name recognition and visibility. She has a long-nurtured campaign apparatus and the ability to call campaign infrastructure into being on the fly. Against the rest of the Democratic field, she's the overwhelming favorite in every poll that's ever been conducted.
They're both famous, divisive, demagogic headline hunters and racial accelerants -- and problems for their respective parties. Lowry and LaMarche discuss Rudy's slam that Obama doesn't "love America" and GOP criticism that he has the wrong phrasing and policy about ISIS.
The outcome of the retrial, and its timeframe, remain uncertain. But more importantly, Mr. Fahmy should not be subjected to this process at all.
I thought nothing more about the disagreement as I left the kitchen to put the dogs out. But the next morning I was startled to see that "the dress" was dominating social media. What had started as a question on Tumblr was now a national obsession. How could some people see black and blue where I saw gold and white?
What color is this dress to you? Remember the story of the emperor's new clothes? Briefly today, it seemed it just might have found its real-life, modern day adaptation. But the truth is stranger than fiction.
She won't be elected because she is a woman; that is just an added benefit. She will be elected the 45th president of the United States of America because she is the most qualified person for the job.
Charlotte Allen's article in the Weekly Standard, "The Transgender Triumph," which reads like a "Greatest Hits" album of the scientifically ignorant and hateful anti-trans rabble, leads with the return of Professor J. Michael Bailey to the scene of the crimes that originally led to his fall from grace. It's a surprisingly tone-deaf way to stage-manage your Second Coming.
Kids already spend lots of time with YouTube, and it's become not only a top entertainment destination, but a key contributor to their learning. Increasingly, young people look for visual demonstrations to answer questions.
Watching Today I'm heartened by the cast and crew's enthusiasm for the guide dog movement and I'm reminded that it really does take a village to breed, raise, and train every single service dog.
Market Mavens are out there, they can be found and profiled, and as social media grows its influence across the demographic spectrum, they're rapidly growing in importance.
Once upon a time, the mixtape was the audio valentine of choice. It was the preferred method of telling a guy or girl you wanted to hold their sweaty palm in yours and pretend to watch a movie.
What is "misremembering"? Do these public figures really believe that they won't get caught? Are they so narcissistic that they feel their embellishments (or outright lies) are, in fact, the "truth"?
To my way of thinking, Fox 31 Denver reporter Julie Hayden's repeated comments that Obama "doesn't love" America, doesn't even "like America," and in fact has "disdain" and "contempt" for our country, fall into the extreme/rude/bombastic category. And Hayden shouldn't be covering any story related to Obama, federal political issues, or, to be safe, any partisan political topic.
We need more such incentives to prompt journalists, bloggers and others to couple journalistic prowess with self-regulated ethics in a bid to avoid the force-feeding of often outdated or unfair laws.
Iman Crosson, A.K.A. Alphacat, is known for his impeccable impression of President Obama and went Huge on the Tube (#HOTT) with his Momentous Day rap.
Is it time for the spin police? Sitting in the theaters of entertainment, politics and business, one wonders if practitioners of influence are abusing their tradecraft and the trust of their markets. One wonders then if they'll self-correct or be market-corrected.
