While news outlets don't just invent numbers on the budget, it would not be much of a change for the worse if they did. The news stories that we saw following the release of President Obama's budget followed the same practice we have seen in budget stories for decades. They threw very large numbers at readers that no one understands.
The show is, in every way, fashioned from the very cloth Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have spent their careers assiduously shredding.
The New York Times,
Paul Ryan Conservative,
Paul Ryan Moderate,
Ross Douthat Paul Ryan,
It is a sign of how far right the Republican Party has moved that New York Times columnist Ross Douthat describes Rep. Paul Ryan as a "moderate." In any rational look at the spectrum of American political views, it is hard to imagine attaching the word "moderate" to Ryan on any issue.

Episodic television is a big employer of actors like me because they're in constant need of doctors, victims, cops, and witnesses.
Anyone who dismisses the resurgence of Nazism in the former Soviet Union is, well, doing a disservice to the truth, historical memory and the Jewish community. The history and severity of anti-Semitism in Ukraine is of such enormity as to touch millions across the world.

If I'm right, then Nic Pizzolatto took a serious -- and brilliant -- artistic gamble in the narrative arc of his screenplay, a wager calculated on a deep dark propensity in the American psyche. And, if I'm right, like Ruston Cohle, I'll "close the loop" on that speculation when it's over.
