Harry Potter and the Chamber of Commerce... and Other Scholastic Satires

Josh Golin | Posted 08.07.2011 | Media
Josh Golin

If the trademark police are watching, let me be clear that the images you're about to see are parodies. Unfortunately, however, Scholastic's InSchool Marketing division is no joke.

Switch Off the TV

Ben Cohen | Posted 05.30.2011 | Politics
Ben Cohen

I stopped watching television about 8 months ago, partly because the bill was so high but mostly because I could not bear to watch the corporate news a second longer.

Losing the Narrative on Public Employee Unions

Joseph A. Palermo | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media
Joseph A. Palermo

The attack on public employee unions has just begun and won't go away. With the disempowerment of labor in our society, any sociologist will tell you, the living standards of all working people will be lowered.

Misfiring on Arianna and AOL

Earl Ofari Hutchinson | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media
Earl Ofari Hutchinson

There's a good reason for applauding HuffPost's deal with AOL, and the largess it reaped. For the first time a progressive media entity has actually attained what seemed an absolute impossibility.

'Friendly Reminder': Fox's Unbalanced Ethics Threatens Democracy

Wendell Potter | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media
Wendell Potter

Bill Sammon, Fox News' Washington managing editor, sent a memo "at the height of the health care reform debate" to his network's so-called journalists, directing them not to use the phrase "public option."

Salim Lamrani | Posted 05.25.2011 | World
Salim Lamrani

The suicide of Orlando Zapata Tamayo is a tragedy. But to the corporate media, it is only useful in the media war against the Cuban government.

Foreign-Funded Attack Ads or Quieter Potato Chip Bags: The Corporate Media Decides

Stu Kreisman | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media
Stu Kreisman

American elections decided by foreign interests or noisy potato chip bags. Hey, it's a no-brainer, babe. Everybody eats potato chips. Another proud moment for our corporate media.

"Network" -- A Precursor to Glenn Beck

Ben Cohen | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media
Ben Cohen

The film was a warning to the media industry that was beginning to go off the rails. Chayefsky understood the trajectory it was taking and painted an apocalyptic landscape to make his point.

What Don Draper Knew (or How History Always Repeats Itself)

Nick Jefferson | Posted 05.25.2011 | Technology
