Jennifer Risi | May 24, 2016 | Media
The source for information remains crucial, and earned stories in traditional news sources are the most trusted. People are still skeptical of visible involvement of a brand in content. Earned media cannot be bought or owned, it is "earned" organically.

Kim Sauder | May 23, 2016 | Impact
There is a big difference between actual human people having feelings about their actual lives and experiences of disability and a fictionalized account written by someone who isn't disabled and which heavily romanticizes very problematic stereotypes about disability.

How Islamophobia Helps ISIS and Breeds Extremism

Ehsan Ahrari | May 23, 2016 | World
Failed multicultural policies have become an excuse for leaders in Europe and the U.S. to not integrate Muslim communities into the mainstream culture, thereby leaving them marginalized. In that state, they are easy prey for poorly educated and West-phobic imams and their incendiary religious rhetoric.

When Posting Your Life Is More Important Than Living It

Nancy Colier | May 23, 2016 | Media
Social media has turned life and its experiences into an exercise in narcissism. No matter what the experience is actually about, it becomes about you, the person who is living it.

What Is So Awful About Donald Trump?

William Astore | May 23, 2016 | Politics
Put simply, Trump's prejudicial attitudes toward women, minorities, and other groups or peoples he doesn't like don't mark him as exceptional, nor does his record of flip-flops on issues, as the American people have come to expect that politicians are basically liars.

Media, The Myth of Trump and What Really Matters

Paul Stoller | May 23, 2016 | Media
Circus-like media attention is good for ratings, for advertising revenues, for circulation and for Mr. Trump. It enables Mr. Trump to spin--with ever-increasing brilliance--the myth of his invincible persona.

Does Facebook Make You Narrow-Minded?

Lev Raphael | May 23, 2016 | Media
That's the thrust of Frank Bruni's thoughtful column in the New York Times where he references social psychologists to assert that we're turning into "culturally and ideologically inflexible tribes."

The Price of Journalism

Adrian Margaret Brune | May 19, 2016 | Media
The state of journalism today is the responsibility of the news corporations, capricious media owners and fluctuating editors-in-chief who decided 15 some odd years ago that the media would give the people the "content" they wanted and not the information they needed.

My Plea for Women's Journalism

Jordan Hernandez | May 20, 2016 | Women
Why are we accepting mediocre women's journalism as the only journalism left? Maybe I'm old fashioned. Maybe I have specific topics and interests that are not as common to write about or explore. Maybe websites exist that I just haven't heard about yet. These are things I often find myself thinking about when I get online to search for good things to read and browse through, as a woman living in a highly connected technologic world in 2016.
