Allie LaForce's inane reporting on Saturday undermines women's efforts to be taken seriously as sports journalists and feeds harmful perceptions that female reporters have less to offer than their male counterparts when it comes to insight and analysis.
Directed by James Vanderbilt, Truth tells the story of 2004's controversial 60 Minutes II broadcast questioning George W. Bush's military service record. It stars Robert Redford as Dan Rather and Cate Blanchett as producer Mary Mapes. This time, Truth prevails.
The writers have done a fantastic job this season as far as bringing in more action, and making the show more than just Federal agents catching and beating up the bad guys. This season deals with who these agents are outside of the workplace.
When I look at the "Arab Spring"; the coverage it got when it was just kicking off, and the mess the whole thing has turned into, I cannot help but wonder what role (if any), television news coverage of the "event" played in shaping our view of what was happening.
As an old Arab saying goes, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." But even though the U.S. and its allies, Russia, Iran, Iraq, the Kurds and Syria all have an urgent need to defeat ISIS, their competing interests make a solution difficult to achieve.

This year's edition will be remembered for putting both Jay Roach's Trumbo and James Vanderbilt's Truth in contention for the Oscar race. I saw the two films back to back on Sunday -- and they are guaranteed to both grip you and infuriate you
In the days and weeks leading up to the premiere of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, there was much speculation about who Stephen Colbert actually was, how much of what we'd seen up until now was a made up persona, and which version of whom would be hosting The Late Show.

Forty-eight years ago, Bill MacPhail, then in charge of sports at CBS, signed a deal with the US Tennis Open to carry its tennis matches, men's and women's, on the CBS network. That deal died last year and in 2015 you'll have to watch them on ESPN.
The other night, my friend Renata and I got into a bit of a rhetorical discussion that was born from an old episode of Friends. The basic gist was, does anyone ever really do anything for someone from a truly altruistic perspective?
Under the Dome is great lightweight summer entertainment. For sure the CBS series, based on the novel by Stephen King, isn't meant to be taken seriously. That doesn't mean it is in the "Sharknado" category, but it also does mean this isn't The Good Wife.
On Wednesday my mentor and hero Marlene Sanders died of cancer at 84 years old. Since then, I've been trying to elicit the right words so I could honor her in a way that she would find meaningful and appropriate. I don't even know if these are them, but I'm going to try.

CBS has more shows about geniuses than any other network ever -- forensic and detective shows, threat-of-the-week shows, The Big Bang Theory -- at least a dozen programs, dwarfing the number of CBS shows about idiots (Big Brother).
