Like many kids in the late '70s/early '80s, I attended summer camp in the Catskills. One of the activities for our group -- a group of about 20 rambunctious boys of 11-12 year-olds -- was Riflery.
Bewkes and Martin seem to be following the traditional trail of MBAs -- cut costs, put lipstick on the pig, dress it up and sell it for as much money as you can get and let the buyer worry about the future.
A significant travel bargain right now---and this is even during the high season--is Kenya where skies are brilliant blue and more than 2 million wildebeest and zebra have migrated from Tanzania into the legendary Masai Mara.
MSNBC ratings have been declining for a while, and CNN has been making slight gains in its audience size. Now is not the time to begin "reducing spending," certainly not if you're trying to maximize "growth and profitability."
CNN has a freedom project that has been dedicated to fighting modern-day slavery since 2002, and considering the fact that child labour is one dominant form of slavery in this generation, I decided to interview CNN Executive Editor Mr. Leif Coorlim.
It is the 24th Anniversary of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) Convention and Career and Community Expo, the 10th LGBT Media Summit and it is in Chicago August 21st through 24th.
"What Does It All Mean?" is actually a sharp turn from "What Me Worry?" and it's indicative of the peculiar direction of the '60s sensibility which danced between the desire for transcendence and a darker nihilism occasioned by the specter of the Vietnam War.

And our world just lost some really good medicine.
It's true that the number of doctors per capita in the U.S. likely will continue to decrease, especially in rural areas. But even though an estimated 13 million Americans have become newly insured since the first of this year, the predictions of the gloom-and-doomers have not panned out.
Ebola is coming and we're all going to die!!!! Actually, not really. But if you watch CNN, you'll definitely start to think so.
Rumors are Lebanon's daily bread with legacy media and citizen journalists accused of fanning the flames amid domestic political unrest, economic uncertainty, and regional upheaval whose sparks are burning Lebanese fingers.
The coverage of the Ebola outbreak is a window into how ill-informed we are about disease, geography and culture. It reinforces stereotypes of Africa as a "country," in which medieval African villagers unwittingly spread medieval Third World diseases into First World spaces.
News of a mini civil war in Lebanon between the Lebanese army and fighters thought to belong to the Islamic State (formerly ISIS) triggered a wave of rumors this week that were blamed in part on traditional media.
As I have told my stunned teenage children, we only had four television channels when I was a kid. Back in the day (and by this I mean before anyone ...
As a Palestinian living in the United States, I must say that the reporting of Fox News and CNN has no connection to the reality that Palestinians know only too well. Their coverage is unfair and fails to convey the whole truth of what is transpiring there.
