'Sophisticated Evaluation of Serious Research' at the New York Times?

Paul Brodeur | March 28, 2015 | Science
Some editors at the New York Times seem to have either developed a severe case of institutional amnesia, or decided to confer the presumption of innocence upon cellphone radiation, as the newspaper did upon asbestos for an entire decade after the mineral had been shown to be the most important industrial carcinogen in the world.

Mika Brzezinski | March 27, 2015 | Business
The "Grow Your Value" bonus competition drives home the message that it is important for women to both learn their value and communicate it effectively.

What's a Good Journalist to Do?

William S. Becker | March 27, 2015 | Politics
In the 2012 presidential election, the candidates all remained mum about climate change. Neither the reporters who followed them nor the moderators of the official presidential debates called them out on the issue. Responsible journalists simply cannot let that be the case this time.

Binge-Watching TV Shows

Shruti Eva Saini | March 26, 2015 | Media
As consumers become more apt to swap the click of a remote for the opening of a laptop or tablet to "tune in", brands will need to reassess how they buy and place their media.

Why We Should All Aspire to Be More Like Colbie Caillat

Danielle Chylinski | March 26, 2015 | Women
I've been thinking about Colbie Caillat's song, "Try," ever since it came out on the radio. I kept writing it down in my notes on my iPhone to remind myself that this song, and the message it sends, should be acknowledged.

Angelina Jolie Pitt Empowers Women to Make Health Decisions

Samantha Golkin | March 26, 2015 | Women
These stories have done more than just educate and inspire women to take their lives into their own hands; they have been the catalyst that has ignited and continues to ignite social and governmental change.

Happy 9th Birthday Twitter! Memorable Twitter Moments

Jeryl Brunner | March 26, 2015 | Media
On March 21, 2006, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey posted the world's first Tweet: "just setting up my twttr." he declared. The company's mission? To give anyone who wanted the power to share thoughts, stories, and information in an instant. All for free but in 140 Haiku-esque characters. And...

Deadline's Dangerous Take on Hollywood Diversity

Rashad Robinson | March 26, 2015 | Black Voices
It feels like Hollywood is finally starting to get what so many of us knew all along; audiences want to see diversity. Yet somehow, at this exciting moment of progress for the industry, Deadline Hollywood found it appropriate to publish what can only be described as a call for regression.

(VIDEO) Can The HuffPost Show Fill Colbert's Gap, All The Way To Cable?

Andy Plesser | March 26, 2015 | Media
AUSTIN -- With two of broadcast TV's satirical news-meisters heading to pastures new this year, is online video yet in a position to move in and occupy the space? We may find out on April 3. That's when Huffington Post launches The HuffPost Show - but, in time, the online media brand wants to get its shows...

Colorado Springs Lawmaker Calls Attack on Pregnant Woman a 'Curse of God Upon America'

Jason Salzman | March 26, 2015 | Denver
How can Klingenschmitt's latest statement possibly be ignored? He isn't another right-wing nut on YouTube. He's an elected official making laws under the gold dome in Denver. Where's the outrage by reporters and other watchdogs? If Klingenschmitt is going to politicize a horrific tragedy in the name of his anti-choice agenda, he should be called out.

Deadline Hollywood and Why It's Dead

Axel W. Caballero | March 26, 2015 | Latino Voices
With a few ridiculously backward paragraphs and veiled and not-so-veiled claims of reverse racism at its finest, Deadline TV editor Nellie Andreeva made sure that the Hollywood portal looked as dated and as zombie-like as the WordPress website it sits on.

The Bible Belt's Long Running Hypocrisy

Richard Fowler | March 25, 2015 | Media
These states, with their history of hatred and discrimination, have the audacity to say they are disciples of Jesus and practice the principles of the Bible.

Could That Cleavage Be Dictating Your Conscience?

Ximena Ortiz | March 25, 2015 | Media
In looking for more images that tell a story we may find ourselves forced to dig deeper and our writing may get better, too. It may also make news and opinion writing more fulfilling and representative. After all, what haven't we said already?

Stephen A. Smith's GOP Delusion Is Nothing New

Earl Ofari Hutchinson | March 26, 2015 | Black Voices
Stephen A. Smith is just the latest in a long line to peddle the delusion that the GOP can change its ways and become an open-arms party for blacks.

Hillary Clinton and the Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy

Paul Alexander | March 25, 2015 | Media
At her recent press conference at the United Nations, the first question posed to Hillary Clinton, asked by a Turkish reporter, had to do with whether she felt she was being treated differently because she was a woman.

Pretty Woman Hides an Ugly Reality

Hon. Judy Harris Kluger | March 25, 2015 | Impact
The Today Show's celebration of this fantasy misses the reality that prostitution is rarely light, loving or funny. In the quarter century since the film's release, we know much more about the links between prostitution and human trafficking.

Phil Robertson's Appalling Atheist Fantasy

Paul Brandeis Raushenbush | March 25, 2015 | Religion
Robertson's words are ugly and ignorant, and the organizers, and all those who applauded him at the Prayer Breakfast in Vero Beach should be ashamed of themselves.

Senator Ted Cruz: Republican Presidential Nominee and Newest Obamacare Enrollee

Jeff Freedman | March 24, 2015 | Politics
For some reason, the media for the most part has treated Cruz's announcement at face value and with a straight face. Now, I understand the goal of the media is to be neutral. But being neutral does not mean being stupid.

Your Handy Guide to Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz

Bob Cesca | March 24, 2015 | Politics
He represents the new GOP cynicism, elevating anti-Obama pandering to his unglued base above actual governing. But don't worry. Cruz probably won't win a damn thing other than a bump in his speaking fees due to his newly ordained status as a "presidential candidate" -- which is why he's running in the first place.

The "Tragic" Humanity of Black Trans Women

Raquel Willis | March 24, 2015 | Gay Voices
When I was forced to stop looking at my identities as if they exist in a vacuum, I realized that being a black trans woman is a major risk and accepting myself would be just the first battle with a society obsessed with compartmentalization.
