The awful news of Jacintha Saldanha's apparent suicide is tragic. However, to inflate the incident unrealistically, as if a harmless prank from two Australian radio disc jockeys was a causal effect and in so doing possibly ruin their careers, is an example of how the media blows things out of proportion.
When you meet Laura Cowan, it's hard to believe that she experienced perhaps the worst domestic abuse case in California history.
I write about movies, so I generally don't have much to say about natural disasters such as the hurricane that slammed the East Coast on Monday. And...
Clearly whiteness exists and it needs to be brought to a level of consciousness so everyone can see the true struggle of the Caucasian race. Like I said earlier, this special group of white men needs your help. Will you stand in solidarity?
From Paris, no coffee this time, but I did manage to stay up to watch the second presidential debate, beginning at 3 a.m. Unlike the first one watched in Amsterdam, the president was alert, prepared and seemed to leave Romney mystified at moments.
I probably know CNN's history as well as anybody and I recall with regret two other incidents where CNN failed to meet the standards of responsible journalism.

Instead of assuming that Maisani was cheating on Cooper, as almost all the media outlets have done, why not assume that Cooper knew exactly where his boyfriend was and had simply said, "Have fun with Bob. I'll see you later tonight. Oh, and can you pick up some more milk? We're almost out"?
It makes me sad and frustrated that anyone needs to "come out" at all. However, I realize now that being "out" to family, friends, colleagues, professors, the Internet, etc. helps them get to know me and helps me be more comfortable with the way I am.
