At 6:30 p.m. every evening, when the young start to figure out who they will hook up with that night, or what the Kimye's are up to, I usually retire to my comfy chair to watch the evening news.
Like most religious awakenings, it didn't happen overnight. I'd heard of this new show The Good Wife, seen ads on bus stops and during commercial breaks for trivial shows like 60 Minutes. It looked silly, something unnecessary in my already busy spiritual TV life.
The fact that the US has been embroiled in a series of wars in that region for the past 14 years makes this perhaps too little too late, but hey, better than nothing. Or almost.
Armenia's President Serzh Sargsyan has invited several world leaders to Yerevan on April 24 to commemorate the Centennial of the Armenian Genocide. Here are 10 reasons why Air Force One should make an auspicious landing in Yerevan's Zvartnots International Airport on April 24.
The need for chaos. That discordant, cluttered, messy and unsettling condition we call chaos is actually an important benefit for all of us. It doesn't matter how organized you are, how anal-retentive you may be, like millions of us, we have a place in our lives where chaos is not only accepted, it's welcomed.
Boomers with the assets and support to retire comfortably represent a smaller and smaller segment of the aging population in our country. Hammered by the Great Recession, reduced pension plans, rising healthcare costs, corporate downsizing, as well as by ageism and reduced opportunities for employment, boomers are going to be increasingly squeezed financially.
Great men and women still exist in journalism, but many of the greatest generation are dying out. An example of this was a memorial service held on March 21, 2015 for the great CBS newsman Richard C. Hottelet.
Few people in America face more discrimination and are more misunderstood than transgender people. Often, it is the misunderstanding that leads to the discrimination. The CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley will try to shed some much-needed light on their world.
The FCC's decision is one of the most pro-business policies ever enacted by an agency under the Obama administration. Yet the so-called defenders of business refuse to see it.
Hillary Clinton is rumored to be putting her campaign team together, and she may announce her intention to run for president sooner rather than later. However, her handling of the controversy over her use of private emails while at the State Department has exposed one of her great weaknesses: transparency.
When you hear the common refrain about Americans hating Washington, they aren't talking about the city in general. Rather, they are referencing the politicians, lobbyists, campaign staffers, and the black-and-white, us-versus-them partisanship of U.S. politics.
CBS has realized the juggernaut ratings of its opening weekend of March Madness. Imagine the same captured audience if the Academy could somehow string along its Sunday-night glacier movement into biteable chunks for us mavens!
As controversy surrounding Bill O'Reilly and his previous claims of harrowing "combat" journalism escalates, this would be the moment when most news organizations would step in and announce that an internal review was underway to ascertain the truth. But not Fox News.
Gene Simmons is a legend. There's no better way to put it. And in a recent interview on All Business with Jeffrey Hayzlett, I had the opportunity to sit down with the legend himself to learn more about his business.
Equating the deaths of three young students to trying to find a parking spot faster at the mall is simply tasteless. Would Inside Edition have presented the story in this manner if the roles were reversed?
