Defeating Donald Trump is only half of the problem; it's time to move democracy into the 21st century. It's time to leave the past in the past and realize that the leaders who created the status quo, will never be inclined to change it as long as they are in charge. Mr. Sanders, we must keep fighting on. We've had your back thus far. Please don't give up on us now.
"Data is very important for a multitude of reasons. It needs to validate, or at least give you some confidence, that what you are doing is the right thing before you actually do it." At the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity this...
An analysis of Canadian mainstream media's reporting of U.S. President Obama's visit to Vietnam recently was so biased that stories may as well have been written by the White House. Just about all traditional media provided Washington's pre-packaged message to the Canadian public.
Setting aside the occasional diatribes of Trump that tend to obfuscate a cogent analysis of his campaign's actual strength, it is clear that the political dynamics that led to the stunning vote in the United Kingdom to exit the European Union are also at play in the United States.
NEW YORK -- Television fans take to Twitter to mourn the end of The A.V. Club covering their favorite TV shows. "TV Club" recap comment sections suggest readers are losing their cool with the free pop culture publication. The A.V. Club is...
It's almost a game, finding exactly the social media platform that your consumer is on, and actually active on. Akhavi asked herself the question: Was it possible to find the perfect medium combining a good balance of content, promotion and sponsored placements?
Stunned reporters this week have been unrelenting in depicting Donald Trump's campaign as one whose wheels have not only come loose, but whose doors and windows have also flown off the hinges.
CANNES -- By now, many advertising buyers are getting used to outstream video - the technology that lets them place video ads on pages that don't even carry video, between text paragraphs. By and large, those ads run on publisher sites. But Teads, one of several vendors behind the technology...
CANNES - The advertising industry's reaction to a report critical of advertising and media agencies that the Association of National Advertisers (ANA) believes pad their compensation via non-transparent tactics continued with a testy waterfront exchange here. It's a subject that won't be going away soon. Beet.TV was present for the...
CANNES - CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, who likes to tell "other peoples' stories"--sans teleprompter--has some advice for a generation that has access to lots of information: take the time to learn where it's coming from. Whether it's the ongoing news story about the mass shootings in Orlando or the 2010...
Rarely, if ever, have I encountered a movie, animated or live action, so replete with positive representations of multiple disabilities, that simultaneously avoids stereotypical pity and triumph narratives and refuses to deny truths like bullying, isolation, despair, and grief.
Today's protest in the House of Representatives just might mark the beginning of the end of the gun industry's grip on American life and liberty.
Democratic National Convention,
Paris Climate Conference,
With the Paris Agreement leaving it up to the governments of individual countries to determine their own emission reduction targets, it is clear that the only way those targets will ever improve is if we - the citizens of those countries - insist to our governments that they do so.
Trying to put my finger on the rise of Donald Trump has been difficult. He's not Hitler. He's not Mussolini. He's a lot like Silvio Berlusconi. But, not quite. He is something of an American original.
There is little difference in the style of coverage and tone between sports talk shows on ESPN and political analyses on CNN or FOX. It's all about having a set opinion, defending it bombastically, talking over one another and getting the last word in.
Americans have roughly five months to learn about the "Deadbeat Donald" aspect of Trump's track record and policy ideas. If we do not learn that lesson by November 4, unfortunately we will learn it the hard way shortly thereafter.
It happens after every major tragedy. An outpouring of love and grief and support on all platforms of social media: inspirational memes, profile-picture overlays, petitions, indignant status updates, political hashtags. It's all just so very...right there.
Two stories caught my eye recently, both in the New York Times. The first was a piece on show-binging: indulging in our newly-found ability to watch an entire season's of a show in one or two sittings.
Words hurt like hell, and it's the height of bad manners to use them as weapons, especially if you have the intelligence to do so.
What should a brand be in 2016? "Authentic." That's the watchword everyone is using these days, and Omnicom's OMD media agency is no different. As the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity got underway this week, OMD camped out at what it's calling its "OMD Oasis", a terrace on...
