As a working TV and feature film writer in Hollywood, I have been fortunate enough to sell a couple of pilots to NBC. But I am also one of those immigrants from Mexico Donald Trump talked about -- except I've never raped anyone, I am not a criminal and I have never done or sold drugs.
Donald Trump has no one to blame but himself for the ongoing controversy. If he had shown a basic level of respect for Latinos, he would not be facing growing outrage in the Hispanic community. Maybe the title of his next book should be "How To Lose Friends and Deport People."
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.
Netflix won, Hulu came in second. Amazon may be third but we won't know for sure until they cross the finish line. And the iconic broadcasters that built the TV industry and controlled it for the past 70 years are nowhere to be found.
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.
Honesty and integrity are all you have in the news business. I lost respect for Brian Williams, but not because he lied. I lost it because he refused to honorably resign.
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.

It's not Brian Williams' fault. He was asked to do something he was not equipped to do -- journalism. He wasn't a journalist. He was a great on air talent. That is no crime.
I finally got off my butt, gave away my office desk, and I'm now committed to standing. Sitting for work, everything I did blurred together. Standing...
The idea of having to 'preserve' the 'profession' is indicative of the terrible state of journalism, not just in Canada, but around the world. The profession of journalism is in trouble, ironically, not because there is not enough information in the world. Their problem is that there is too much information in the world.
Dancing to Pitbull's "Fireball," 96-year-old Tao Porchon-Lynch and ballroom dance teacher Vard Margaryan wowed the "America's Got Talent" judges and audience on Tuesday, June 9, 2015.
While some candidates hold their ground, promising to pursue a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage if the Supreme Court upholds recognition of it in rulings expected this month, the movement in support of same-sex marriage is simply tectonic.
We often hear "You have to be willing to take risks" in business, sports and life. Risk / Reward is the ratio used by many investors to compare the ex...
American guitarist Les Paul would have turned 100 years old this week. Born in Waukesha, Wisconsin on June 9, 1915, Paul became one of the most important figures in popular music during the middle decades of the twentieth century.
