I want news I can trust. I know this is not a simple problem. But it starts with journalists using their expertise and authority to accurately describe what is happening.
In Malala's recent interview with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, she discussed how she would respond to a Taliban assassin. Her answer left Stewart speechless.
Whether on TV or not, language is a tricky thing. Words can put people on the defensive -- or make them feel on top of the world. And, although, as the saying goes, "words can never hurt me," they can annoy the heck out of someone. For example, no one in 2013 should still be uttering 'bromance,' or 'oh, awkward' or 'binders full of women.'

It was Letterman's sixth win (for perspective, Letterman's hero, Johnny Carson, only won one Emmy for "The Tonight Show") and it would mark the last time anyone other than Jon Stewart has won the Emmy for Outstanding Variety Series.

I Heart Boobies is a saccharine piece of hard candy that should make anyone who's ever endured breast cancer want to choke. All of cancer's ugly, painful complexity is scrubbed away, leaving a pop-able, infantile easy-to-gulp nugget for Americans of all ages to ingest.
CBS is prime-time's most watched network. And some of its programming is very middle of the road. Of course, it's also home to the more alternative sensibilities of David Letterman and Craig Ferguson but my point is: It's not LOGO.

Modern comedy is about being part of something -- not just laughing. Modern comedians have transformed their fan bases into meaningful communities such that comedy shows have become meeting places and even celebrations for like-minded audiences.
We are so close to losing our democracy to the mercenary class, it's as if we are leaning way over the rim of the Grand Canyon and all that's needed is a swift kick in the pants. Look out below.
