We cannot right the wrongs that mare our past. Persecuting Paula Deen for racism in this country is not going to fix the hundreds of years of intolerance toward any specific group of people.
The three major TV networks -- ABC, CBS, and NBC -- covered climate change in depth on their nightly news programs a total of 12 times in 2012. So far, in 2013, they have only reported segments on the issue nine times.
When a huge swath of the country is on the side of the guy-on-the-run and not the government, it's much easier to see that there's nothing "objective" or "neutral" about journalists who so closely identify with the spy agencies or Justice Department or White House.
Watch another new show on Monday nights like (scans listings) Teen Wolf? That's a show? Pull it together, America.
Though Teresa tries to put up a strong front, it's obvious that the year of silence has been painful. She finally confronts Joe ... by standing over him as he gets ready to bench press. Now, the brother she hasn't seen in oh-so-long is literally talking to her lady garden.
"There's no need to run home to my brother and make it bigger than it is," Teresa says in her interview. Note how she says "my brother" and not "her husband." Teresa still feels like she has ownership over Joe, and she views Melissa as her replacement and mortal enemy.
As Teresa speaks, Caroline dusts off her infamous head tilt, which is often followed by other signature gestures, such as "wild arms" and "terrifying low voice of death." As Teresa stumbles through her side of the story, Caroline rocks out all her moves.
"I'm willing to go talk to your sister," Caroline says selflessly. Then, Joe offers Caroline the same advise that I'd offer to you, my dear readers, as we embark on this Season 5 journey together: "Wear some armor and bring a hand gun."
I really wish I knew how the producers encourage the men to meet our bachelorette -- do they tell them to admit how nervous they are or persuade them to come up with the corniest and/or most memorable introduction?
It's that time again. Summer is upon us and with it comes reruns of your favorite television shows and crappy summer series that will be canceled mid-way into June.
I've been known to cry during a "Glee" finale or two (or all of them). This finale was on par with one of the show's typical, mid-season fluff episodes that are usually forgettable.
Last week's episode of "Glee" set up a lot of plotlines for the end of the season, and next week's episode is the big finale. So what was this week's episode? Fluff.
Why should all families, all schools, all community leaders, all employers and all policymakers watch this series? Because it so effectively undermines our fatalism about the seemingly intractable obesity crisis.
I sat my daughter down for one of those heart to heart Dad talks that invariably begin with five simple words: "Stop looking at your phone."
Seeing all the hubbub at Tuesday night's premiere, one really begins to wonder why ABC cancelled these beloved soap operas in the first place.
The power goes out for an entire episode; Sarah Jessica Parker returns; Kurt and Rachel help Santana rediscover her dream; and one Glee Club member reveals a traumatic secret.
