I found out about Nelson Mandela's passing when I turned on "Politics Nation with Al Sharpton" Thursday night. The whole program was appropriately de...
On primetime, Latinos have no Al Sharpton, no Joy Reid, no Donna Brazile, no Eugene Robinson, no Oprah Winfrey. Even though Latinos are 50 million strong and clearly decided the 2012 election, they are largely absent from the production, writing and telling of their stories.
These folks are what we refer to as the looney tunes fringe of the electorate. They have a right to their own opinion and we would like to see them have rights as individuals clustered together to secede from the United States.
In the absurdity that has become the Republican Primary we have increasingly had to look to comedians to make sense of the whole mess, by exposing hypocrisy and speaking truth to power.

Colorado Representative Doug Lamborn's op-ed, calling for the defunding of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, is truly one of the most disingenuous pieces of propaganda I have ever read.
Could the Williams matter have been better handled? Most agree that it could have. Does a bungled personnel matter serve as justification to gut all federal funding for this insightful news organization? Absolutely not.
Ellen Weiss is out, and the word has almost certainly gushed through the NPR management pipeline to tread even more carefully from here on out to insure that no conservative feathers are ruffled.
