As I read Elizabeth Kolbert's Comment "Rough Forecasts" in the April 14, 2014, issue of The New Yorker, I was struck by her inclusion of a quote that had been taken word for word and without attribution from the second of two articles I had written for the magazine in 1986.
While any right-thinking person (especially a devoted Destiny's Child fan like myself) couldn't agree more with Beyoncé's inclusion as one of Time's 'Most Influential' people, I simply think she'd be an even stronger model if she didn't bare all, all of the time.
The threat that female toplessness and self-articulated nudity poses is culturally defined and can be culturally redefined so that people recognize that the offense to morality is misogyny, not nudity.
Garrett Graff, who served as the Washingtonian's editor for five years, is leaving the magazine.
Of course, the National Review has every right under the First Amendment to say all of these things, and I would defend to the death, in Voltaire's words, its right to say them. But that does not make them any less offensive -- or ignorant of the law.
But even now, 50 years later, she says that the time she spent in Africa "gave me a formation ... and left me with a sense of all the things you can do as one person." Of all her life experiences, she says, this one -- caring for families half a world away from her home country -- "probably marked me the most."
Climbing Mt. Everest is no longer a noble pursuit and the people who do it are not heroes.
With the accusations about the I.S.I's involvement in another plot against a journalist, the failed assassination attempt has transformed into a major national debate in Pakistan about the army's hostile relationship with the media and desperate attempts to strangulate dissenting voices.
Questlove has grown weary of artists at the top of the hip-hop hierarchy making art that mostly celebrates being at the top of the hip-hop hierarchy -- meaningless, cynical stuff created and packaged to appeal to the masses.
Please repeat after me: it is never OK to publicly say an unkind thing about another human being's face. If you want women in Hollywood to stop getting plastic surgery, maybe you should just stop saying negative things about their appearance, period.
In recent months, the ever-evolving social Web and demand for a visual-first approach requires that everyone in public affairs and communications learn how to create and design compelling visual content.
Note that in this column, Goldberg does not declare climate change a hoax. Of course, if he did so, he would, in essence, label his NR colleague Jim Manzi a liar, and he's not about to do that. So if it isn't a hoax, one has to ask: How does he think the GOP should address this issue?
Reporters are correct to look for political consequences beyond the policy itself. But a narrow focus on a few specific states in a single election year misses the more important story.
It took a journalist with Mark Hebert's talents, and courage, to dig out a scandal about a sitting Governor and make it a national story. With a long-term national impact.
I've tried every explanation out in trying to figure out what Salmon is thinking and none of them make sense, except that he's either ten steps ahead of us, has been abducted and replaced, or has joined a cult.
Big media tries to ease its headaches through big lawsuits, but that strategy has backfired. A couple of suits, against Sony's Betamax and Cablevision's network DVR, resulted in landmark decisions against media companies and in favor of viewers.
If I could highlight at least one indispensable feature of the press, I would choose interaction with readers. Right now in Havana, we are putting the final touches on a new digital media that will greatly help us to listen to your opinions.
