What William F. Buckley and Gore Vidal did for discourse in America was unprecedented. They proved there was a time not so long ago we relished hearing both sides of political arguments. And there is a time -- call it the present -- when a hunger for authenticity seems to be driving both parties in unexpected directions.
Night after night, seemingly intelligent humans spend hours pondering why the media is spending hours pondering Trump's unlikely popularity. I suppose I'm doing it now.
The joke is long past over. With autumn closing in, it's getting harder to see how the short-fingered vulgarian of the American business world doesn't take his presidential odyssey at least to the gates of the GOP convention in Cleveland, if not beyond.
Trump would also never accept the job of president, as tempting as it might seem. It would mean giving up direct control of his global business empire. He would also have to forfeit the hundreds of millions of dollars he receives in endorsement deals every year.

In light of the upcoming presidential campaign and a potential Republican president, there is a strong need for a consistent strong liberal voice to even the playing field of advocacy journalism, which reports the news from a biased slant.

As the father of two daughters, I have seen my ranking in the "Most Trusted Dad" category plunge faster than the Chinook helicopter Williams never rode in.
In the days and months to come, much will be said and written about Brian Williams and his first utterances to Matt Lauer on Friday's Today Show about his suspension from anchor chair at the Nightly News.
I watched Brian Williams' interview with Matt Lauer hoping to hear, once and for all, a contrite admission that Williams lied to us all. Repeatedly. And that he was deeply sorry for losing our trust. Expectations were high to say the least.
A sincere apology by Mr. Williams confessing the litany of deceptions with full responsibility is a sin qua none for forgiveness. It is a far cry from being enough to give him any job back. Tigers don't often change their stripes. His reinstatement is a sad comment on society. Dollars and cents are the daggers that trump integrity.
NBC wants to put their one time superstar on the staff of MSNBC. For those who have served in a high position in any major network, this is a form a purgatory, a way of firing someone without actually pulling the trigger.
