This week we look at one Washington State community in which the battle for a $15 minimum wage has been won, discuss the latest developments in the political battle over the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and discuss the 2016 election by talking about how much we hate the 2016 election.
Rubio's meme is "I'm the future", but models JFK and Obama didn't want to go back to '20s and '50s. Clinton's is "I'm your neighbor's mom", but will GOP Evita-ize her? Lowry and Vanden Heuvel discuss both as well as whether the bi-partisan agreement on Congress's role on Iran Deal is win-win for both parties.
If Bruce had told me about his gender issue when we first began getting romantically involved, I would not have married him. Pure and simple. But looking back, I'm so grateful to God, the universe, and Bruce that I didn't know, and that Bruce played the role in my life that he did.
When Americans vote for President, they see it like hiring a plumber. When you hire a plumber, you want to know one thing: can he get the job done? You don't ask too many questions about the plumber's draft record or his love life.
Sitting with Sean Hannity last week, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul expressed his outrage at money received by Bill and Hillary Clinton over the years and actions that they may have taken as public officials to benefit those who contributed funds.
My mother refused to be intimidated by the many threats, acts of violence, having her home bombed on two occasions, or even the assassination of her husband. Never did she waver from her and my father's shared determination that America must honor its sacred promise of equality and justice for citizens of every race.
The female characters in films are typically not substantial, especially compared to the male characters they "share" the screen with. The women are often portrayed as one-dimensional and male-dependent. They are "damsels in distress," desperate to be saved by -- yeah, you guessed it, a dude.
This week we mark the 40th anniversary of those final days of the war. We will once again surely see the searing images of terrified refugees, desperate evacuations, and final defeat. But even that grim tale offers a lesson to those who will someday memorialize our present round of disastrous wars.
For politicians, the message is clear: making the rounds on the Sunday morning news programs is no longer good enough. The lesson is no less clear for advertisers who rely on the same eyeballs. The advertising industry should take this as a sign that online video is a worthy investment.
The contrast between the haves and have-nots might be especially stark at that New York building, but millions of families across the country are finding themselves on the wrong side of the poor door.
As Christians, we are called to love our neighbors. The Bible tells us to welcome strangers in our land and to love them as we love ourselves. That's why the media and all Americans should immediately stop referring to our undocumented brothers and sisters as "illegal."
I wish Obama had gone to Ferguson and issued a stinging critique of the Grand Jury. I wish he'd raised hell after the killing of Trayvon Martin. I wish he'd make endemic racial inequality the centerpiece of his final years in office. But that Obama has never been.
If The New York Times has decided to throw its hat into Murdoch's ring this campaign season, even just occasionally, as with Clinton Cash and The Tangled Clinton Web, the results for Democrats could be troubling. Conservative misinformation is always most dangerous when it's given legitimacy it doesn't deserve.
It seems clear to me that the tragedy that occurred last week is business as usual in Europe. And that is the real tragedy. But this disaster has no easy solution and therefore there is no easy way to cover it.
Much of the dysfunction that now poses a lethal threat to our politics and government is ultimately about money, and the media it buys. From time to time, campaign-finance reform comes up -- Hillary Clinton says it's a big issue for her -- but the Washington press corps treats the cesspool like old news.
I am old. I am so old that I still like to start each morning with a printed, paper newspaper at breakfast. I could read the paper online, on my iPad or my phone, but there is something enormously satisfying about the physicality of the paper.
We look forward to his on-air response, and hope that Dr. Oz will be transparent and honest about his methods, intentions and future behavior.
