The FCC should require the cable news networks to drop the word "news" from their names. When all you have is a parade of pundits mouthing talking points hour after hour, that's not news. That's entertainment.
While it may seem unconventional to leave a rapidly growing political cable show on the eve of a presidential election, to me, the timing couldn't be better.
I launched both CNN and Headline News, and I never believed the days would come when more people watched our tabloid version rather than what was supposed to be the quality product.
In order to understand Romney's reliance on his Bain Capital experience, one must also gain an understanding about how private equity works, the prevailing general ignorance about which has, thus far, benefitted the Romney campaign.
Yes, there's a double-standard. And until there's full equality and the long slow process of racial healing is completed, the double-standard has to remain.
NPR and Jon Stewart's Daily Show came out on top as the most informative, making the schadenfreude all the more delicious for Fox-haters, and the twisting of the liberal knife-in-the-back all the more painful for Fox fans. But how did it come to that?

CNN ought to do whatever it can to cut April out of the calendar. Last year was bad enough, but this year CNN's audience shrunk by 21% over the total day and 16% in primetime.
There are good, quality, educational shows on TV about small business and entrepreneurship. In fact, I can name at least six shows that I regularly watch which teach me much about running my company and doing a better job.
