It sure looked like the notion that Romney might take another crack at this was well and surely put to bed. But this week, one man started having funny feelings about Romney again. Feelings he just couldn't shake.
This was the week when lame duck Obama became a political lion. Lowry and Reagan debate its impact on the country and '16. Can Rich find a pony in there somewhere? Key question: will GOP prospects promise new Justices to reverse ACA and gay marriage thereby keeping it a rallying issue for Democrats? (Fish gotta swim...)
In response to sexual violence, we too often hear the hateful and self-serving phrase "they were asking for it." Now, in the wake of mass shootings, gun apologists have taken to publicly and loudly importing this shameful, victim-blaming tactic.
Ask yourself what would Republicans have done if Gore supporters had compared such resistance to the American Revolution itself, and compared the Supreme Court to King George III. Ask yourself what would have been the reaction of the mainstream media to such statements.
Obama leaves the White House in 18 months, and while there appears no prospect that his treatment will change in the interim, we should view the election as a reset of the way in which we treat our chief executives.
I am rejoicing today, and ecstatic that in the years to come, the love that I share with my husband and the love that millions of other LGBT Americans experience will be honored and that LGBT people will have gained dignity and justice at last.
I feel that you could have had a much more effective show if you had devoted your entire 30 minutes to the Charleston shooting. I am usually a big fan of your show, but this past week you did not insert your unique voice into the fray when it was needed.
"It would be nice to live in a world where people didn't have to deal with an organization that is not compromised in any manner whatsoever, but we don't live in that world. People have to use cars and they have put to petrol in their cars, and that petrol is made by Shell or BP."
Women's voices in every facet of media are important because they change the conversation by making it more inclusive. Much like their presence in politics, women's presence in news -- as reporters, sources and story subjects -- isn't nearly representative of their presence in our country.
A crowdsourced site caught my eye. It's about a cartoonist with the Montgomery County Sentinel in Maryland who has been stealing other cartoonists' work. The name of the cartoonist, William Charles, is obviously made-up, and many feel that the editor of the newspaper himself, Brian Karem, is doing the dirty work.
Matt is the worldwide lead on developing the McDonald's brand, responsible for keeping the iconic Golden Arches shining bright in 119 markets. McDonald's was also named by Cannes Lions as Creative Marketer of the Year in 2014.
Netflix won, Hulu came in second. Amazon may be third but we won't know for sure until they cross the finish line. And the iconic broadcasters that built the TV industry and controlled it for the past 70 years are nowhere to be found.
What is the intellectually defensible position for where to draw the line between free speech and religious satire? How far is too far in an open society? Is it possible for tact replace hate, to make the point with a stiletto rather than a cleaver? Often when I face such dilemmas I turn to an unlikely wisdom tradition: The Simpsons.
Activists do themselves a disservice if they alienate advocates who believe just as passionately as they do, but choose to go about implementing change in a different way.
I'm tired of all the noise on the internet. We spend a lot of time here. Why do we insist on making it so unpleasant so often? Why are so many people out looking for a fight? We can't all possibly have an opinion on EVERYTHING.
That television still reigns supreme may seem surprising, but the marketplace of new media content seems to agree. Despite a plethora of online live streams, the mother lode of money still seems to be in television, and probably will remain there for some time.
Will your product or service help conserve energy, raise better children or improve health care? Or are you merely seeking publicity for its own sake?
Ya gotta hand it to Donald Trump. Whenever he does something, he does it big. Huge...the biggest and the best!, as the self-aggrandizing Donald himself would say.
