I'm done talking about this. And so is Bill. And so is the management of Fox News -- the highest rated channel in cable, bar none.
Everyone who contributes to Facebook or Instagram or Youtube or Twitter -- anyone who contributes content to the vast and ever growing sprawl of the information media matrix is a journalist. Today, we are ALL journalists -- and that is no bad thing.
To my way of thinking, Fox 31 Denver reporter Julie Hayden's repeated comments that Obama "doesn't love" America, doesn't even "like America," and in fact has "disdain" and "contempt" for our country, fall into the extreme/rude/bombastic category. And Hayden shouldn't be covering any story related to Obama, federal political issues, or, to be safe, any partisan political topic.
The transcribed conversation in The Atlantic, starting with that headline, is rather the opposite of measured, taking the measure of prevailing sentiment, and apparently concluding that prevailing faith in nutrient supplements warranted some additional throttling. If enthusiasm for supplements is the action of concern here, this piece has opted to highlight the opposing reaction.
We need more such incentives to prompt journalists, bloggers and others to couple journalistic prowess with self-regulated ethics in a bid to avoid the force-feeding of often outdated or unfair laws.

I have a feeling that Jon Stewart, with his ersatz Ph.D. from Comedy Central (and no student debt), might like to get on the field of real news and journalism, at least the televised kind, and do something to solve those problems, both the country's and the conflictinator's.
After several years of deliberation, I finally purchased a Kindle. I now own my very own digital reading device which has all the books I can read on it. There's lots that's unsettling about the device, but that's not entirely bad -- just caused a bit soul searching.
There is a valid concern that the countering violent extremism initiative could provide justification for governments to broaden surveillance online and use it to curb human rights and civil liberties.
I don't know about you, but I'm really feeling sorry for NBC's Brian Williams. If you are a serious news addict, and consequently crave history, you should know that Brian Williams and his ilk are, in the traditional sense, actors rather than scribes.
This past October, a startling bill was fast-tracked through the Pennsylvania legislature that should make every one of us take pause and think about what those documents really mean.
Last week, in an interview with Matthew Yglesias of Vox Media, President Obama was asked whether the media overstates the threat of terror compared with longer-term problems such as climate change and disease. With refreshing candor, the president responded.
