TV personality and chef Anthony Bourdain takes time out to talk to us about his unforgettable experience of filming in Tanzania and Zanzibar.
They're selling us another war on television. As a Washington media strategist, people ask me, "Who's offering alternatives to war on the Sunday morning news shows?"
As controllers of technology, individually and collectively, we must balance technological connection with disconnection, have the discipline to lose ourselves in our unconscious minds, and have the focus to listen to our souls.
It's time for Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes, Turner CEO John Martin, and CNN President Jeff Zucker, to find their way out of this mess.
There was always talk that the fibbies looked the other way when it came to Bulger because he was an informant. But was he really? Based on what I saw in this documentary, the answer was no... or at least more no than yes.
Satire has always been a method for us to explore our faults and false expectations of world order. But satire in the movies might be dead now, replaced by daily satire that is for real. We live in a world of complete and utter madness. Nothing highlights this absurdism like the current conflict with the Islamic State.
Within any given newscast, we can see Administration spokespeople wax on about ISIL while the anchors, analysts and correspondents keep saying ISIS, sometimes directly to one another within the same conversation. How are we to agree on a long term strategy to eradicate this evil if we can't agree on what to call them?

Thank you on behalf of all comedians working today who know that you always fought the enemies of comedy. You controlled the room always, in the most professional way. You leveled the playing ground for all comedians. You'll be missed, but not forgotten. Copied but never matched. Never bested.
For days I was thinking about the invisible lines between journalism and activism. Journalism involves the telling of truth and stories. Activism involves fighting for a cause one believes to be right and true. What if the story someone is reporting on has a loud cause crying to be fought for?
Is my one-time favorite magazine going the way of the dodo bird? What's to become of TIME after it was cut loose from a corporate tether tied to a sought-after prize?
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.
