If our country is ever to get out of its current polarized rut, our media habits need to change. People need to get their news from a wide range of sources and go beyond their own echo chambers to get various perspectives on the news. They need news that they can rely on.
I recently made what I thought would be a harmless comment on Rachel Maddow's Twitter timeline about government agencies being wasteful and ineffectiv...
I believe that it will take a lot of news intelligence and creativity to turn CNN around. Cutting costs and firing guys will not do it.
Two people who should have known better, flopping around in the gutter of stupidity saying "Look at me! Look at me!" Let's do them all a favor and start looking the other way.
For the first time in my life, I can confidently say that most news is not making us smarter -- it is making us dumber.
Al Jazeera is a Qatari owned company reporting on American faults. Their concentration on the negative side of American life does not sit well with me.
This is not about being politically correct. It's about not being ignorant.

Rachel, Chris, Ed, Al, Lawrence, Chris....say it ain't so. Nary a mention of the gigundo merger between Comcast and Time Warner. You are, all of you, about speaking truth to power.
According to Sullivan, the gay mafia has struck again, destroying a man and bringing him down because he would not conform to its thinking.
The bias is not political, but in favor of generating the most buzz, getting the most page views or the highest ratings. And eyeballs, especially in the Internet era, equal revenue.

Last night, both CNN and MSNBC spent hours on how a satellite had spotted something in the Indian Ocean. That was it. Just that. But it sufficed as a rationale for ignoring Crimea, Affordable Health Care, Rand Paul and Chris Christie.
We're writing you as members of two different generations -- Boomer and Millennial -- to ask you for an on-air correction to your recent segment on 'The Cycle' focused on millennial and earned benefit programs.
The show is, in every way, fashioned from the very cloth Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have spent their careers assiduously shredding.
