While I absolutely believe that AA is far from perfect, please trust me when I suggest that we would not want to wake up tomorrow in a world without it.
There's a new brouhaha about Alcoholics Anonymous in the media in an article in The Atlantic and recent book about "The Irrationality of Alcoholics An...
With the advent of the 24-hour news cycle and the failure of bland candidates like Al Gore, the American people have spoken. They want an exciting, riveting, jaw-dropping and hope-inspiring President.
It is irrelevant how many times Trinidad James repeats the "N" word in "All Gold Everything." This is a societal issue that needs to be faced head-on, not by playing a media game of hide and seek.
Somehow all the sturm and drang created by each new "accusation and bombshell" her opponents dream up, and the press jumps to report, ends the same; Hillary is never shown to have done anything wrong. She comes out of these made for TV crisis looking like what she is; a brilliant woman and good politician who gets things done.
Ratings are down at MSNBC, and as long as MSNBC invests in the wrong talent, it will stay that way. It is a sad day for informative, intelligent, and progressive news as one of my most favorite hosts, Joy-Ann Reid, gets her 2 p.m. show The Reid Report cancelled.
Fox News host Bill O'Reilly is denouncing a Mother Jones story that charges he has his own Brian Williams problem. The magazine accuses O'Reilly of ma...
During the late 1980s, my mother heard a radio report about an educational method called "homeschooling." At the time, it was framed as a predominantly religious response in the U.S. to the secularization of schooling. But what mom saw was an opportunity to spend more time raising her children in the way she believed to be best.
I'm continuously fascinated and puzzled by the public's zealous anger over situations that amount to nothing. Everything is not the end of the world. Do you know what is the end of the world? Zealous anger. This is what leads to road rage and spousal abuse and ISIS.
No, I don't live in New York; I'm not competing for press; I'm not trying to be the most liked or endorsed. Sure, I still have moments of frustration, but I'm focused on me. And I can honestly say I've never felt more comfortable in my skin.
Hillary is the opposite of a leader with bold ideas. At least the Republicans are raring to go with an agenda -- regardless of how ill-conceived.
The truth is that the online audience Obama was able to speak to trust Bethany Mota, Glozell Green, and Hank Green. They do not trust mainstream journalists. But for the mainstream media, rather than taking a look in the mirror, it is much easier to continue with what has become tiresome and played-out Obama bashing.
The official Republican National Committee all-expenses paid week-long travel junket, due this Saturday to fly 60-odd Republicans of the RNC to Israel, has come under heavy criticism.
Reaganomics, the plot to appease the rich and condemn the rest, got its comeuppance last week in President Obama's State of the Union speech. The president asked: "Will we accept an economy where only a few of us do spectacularly well?"
A remarkably packed media week certainly flowed from the massacre at France's Charlie Hebdo magazine and the hostage killings at the Porte de Vincennes HyperCacher kosher food store.
We are all ignorant; none of us have all the answers. That fact is not only a strong argument in favor of free speech and against those who would suppress it -- it is a spur toward greater wisdom.
