To my mind, Jimmy Cannon was the greatest sports writer who ever lived. I read his columns in the New York Post avidly and religiously. When he wasn't writing about sports, he was musing, offering his personal, mostly one- or two-liner opinions, about anything that hit his off-the-charts observant eye. Most had little to do with sports.
Human sexuality is complex. And porn is a facet of it that still incites ambiguity in me -- I don't have it all figured out.
Shouldn't I say something nice here about Jeff Bezos? Bezos? Yes, inventor of Amazon. You mean the bully, beating up on Hachette, and Hachette's poor authors? The same. Why be nice to him? Because, mon vieux, he's done something we should all be grateful for.
Saved You a Click,
The Onion Clickhole,
In the age of bite-sized lists, tweets, and pithy "tl;dr" wrap-ups, we're losing the ability to engage deeply with subjects. Hoax sites have learned our diet and how to disguise themselves as food. The only way to fight back is to change what we eat.
It's actually kind of fun to see modern day portrayals of parenting, because the style is so vastly different than in generations past.
As a journalist dedicated to reporting on animal issues, nearly all of them are brimming with news-worthy elements: poverty, climate change, land-ownership issues, gender imbalance, rural plight, global trade, corruption, and blatant abuse of power.

Don't expect to learn much about the creative process from this documentary, even though it surfaces in the story. Some people are simply born that way -- though I don't think you have to arrive dead to be gifted.
Very soon the Federal Communications Commission will either empower minority voices on the Internet and help close the digital divide, or it will make it easier for communications giants to silence and exclude those communities from the free or low-priced content now on the web.

Bhagat's accessibility and trustworthiness, and indeed, his popularity, sometimes make it difficult to detect or denounce the serious lapses in his judgement.
Online stories often have an eternal shelf life that holds no geographical boundaries. The more that traditional media and brands collectively embrace this new normal, the more these challenges will become opportunities for us all.
The Times' editorial has the feel of legendary CBS News anchor Walter Cronkite coming out against the Vietnam war. They dropped a bomb on our country's disastrous war on marijuana with unprecedented force.
The question remains: Why do Republicans come back, over and over, to this kind of thing, to peddling a cocktail of fear mixed with hate?

Meet The Press,
Let's face it: most of us don't like David Gregory. He's the smug brat we always hated in high school. No wonder so many of us are salivating at rumors that NBC may relieve the grey-haired wonder boy from his Meet the Press duties.

Genetically Modified Organisms,
Matalin and Corn debate déjà vu news - Israel back in Gaza and ACA back in court. Consensus: there's not a media bias but a rough balance between pro-Israel talking heads and the flood of photos of dead civilians. Also: why not label GMOs in processed food?
Ramadan In Different Parts Of The World,
For the first time in my life, I got an opportunity to spend Ramadan outside my home country, the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. The mantra of an "Islamic" state of Pakistan is continuously blared on every other media one comes across. But, is real Islam being practiced?
Week In Review,
A little round-up of some things of note that happened in the world of social media this week. Highlights include traditional media outlets being beaten to stories by Twitter, Scottish Terriers stealing the show at the Commonwealth Games ceremony and the inevitable dog gif...
The unfolding humanitarian crisis on the border further highlights the urgent need to fix our broken immigration system and create a clear and fair path to citizenship. Yet some Congressional Republicans are using the plight of immigrant families to call for even stricter enforcement policies. It's shameful.
Stand Your Ground,
The Purge: Anarchy,
The Purge had interesting ideas but ultimately failed as the horror film it was marketed as. But with Anarchy, the pretense of being a horror movie seems to have been abandoned, leaving something pretty unique: a political allegory dystopian action thriller that slyly attacks conservative ideology.
