Defeating Trump Doesn't Eliminate the Evil of Clinton

Kwame Rose | June 24, 2016 | Politics
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.

Old Canadian Media Reveals Its Washington Bias With Recent Coverage

Nick Fillmore | June 24, 2016 | Canada Politics
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.

Brexit Has Implications For Hillary Clinton And Donald Trump In Upcoming Presidential Election

Sheldon Filger | June 24, 2016 | Politics
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.

Faye Harris | June 23, 2016 | Media
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?

Is Trump's Campaign Just Another Conservative Con? And Should The Press Cover It That Way?

Eric Boehlert | June 23, 2016 | Media
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.

Andy Plesser | June 23, 2016 | Media
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...

(VIDEO) Anderson Cooper: People Should Consider The Sources Of Their News Feeds

Andy Plesser | June 23, 2016 | Media
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...

'Suck it, Bipeds': Finding Dory's Disability Narratives

Diane R. Wiener, Ph.D., L.M.S.W. | June 23, 2016 | Media
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.

Dear Bill McKibben: This Is How You Can Ensure America Truly Leads On Climate

Michael Dobson | June 23, 2016 | Green
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.

Facism As Farce: A Meditation On America's Soul Sickness

James Ishmael Ford | June 22, 2016 | Politics
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.

Moths To The Media Trumped-Up Flame

Cylvia Hayes | June 22, 2016 | Media
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.

Does 'Deadbeat Donald' Have Any Money?

Dmitri Mehlhorn | June 22, 2016 | Politics
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.

Ready, Fire, Aim: Social Media & National Tragedies

Dani Fleischer | June 21, 2016 | Media
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.
