We still don't have any sort of apology or retraction from the Washington Post for promoting "The List" -- the highly dangerous blacklist that got a huge boost from the newspaper's fawning coverage on November 24.
I had a spiritual revelation in my polling place last week in the presidential election. My partner and I chatted with others in line. There were man...
There are many reasons why Donald Trump should keep his mouth shut, and cower in the shadows where he and his family belong after making disparaging remarks about the Khan family earlier this week. However, here are the two biggest ones.
Rachel Maddow and some other feminists need to get a grip. They profess horror that, at the outset of his DNC speech last night, President Clinton...
What passes as argument on most news media outlets hardly resembles the sort of dialogue that might help to increase awareness of our myriad contempor...
There's an ad in The New Yorker for Morning Joe featuring Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough titled The Firebrands. It reads in part: "They are th...
Sorry to tell you guys, but we ain't buying your sudden transformation and support for us. It smells of political expediency. Try peddling your fraud to other voting groups.

Can Bernie's promises be paid for? We would have to reverse a trend of lower taxes begun in the 1970s. That means bringing out new voters -- mostly young--that have been sitting on the sidelines until now.
Democrats are down to a head-to-head contest, which was on full display last night. Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders made their respective cases fairly well, and the jostling between them for position was notable.
The talk today -- rather than being about the post-debate social gesture hugs -- should be about the candidates' answers in last night's debate. Period.
