That Rupert Murdoch governs over a criminal media empire has been made clear enough in the UK courts in recent years. That the Wall Street Journal op-ed pages, the latest victim of Murdoch's lawless greed, are little more than naked propaganda is perhaps less appreciated.
If the early reports are correct and journalist James Foley was, in fact, executed by ISIS, you can honor him -- and not play into the terroristic hands of that organization -- simply by not watching the video of his murder.
As I have told my stunned teenage children, we only had four television channels when I was a kid. Back in the day (and by this I mean before anyone ...
This week, the spotlight remained on immigration, with President Obama requesting $3.7 billion to deal with the flood of undocumented children crossing the border. As Speaker Boehner fixated on suing the President for delaying the same insurance mandate Boehner has tried to repeal, Glenn Beck announced plans to deliver food, water and toys to the children being held at the border, and the Wall Street Journal denounced the "extreme voices" arguing for impeachment, which included Sarah Palin. When the Journal calls out extremists and Glenn Beck is your voice of reason and compassion, you know the Republicans are in more disarray than the Brazilian soccer team's defense. Speaking of which, as Germany faces Argentina in the World Cup final, it's a day of split loyalties for the Vatican. Does God side with Argentine Pope Francis or German Pope Emeritus Benedict in this Papal Playoff? Maybe the CIA's newly discovered German double agent has the inside scoop.

Maybe embracing the future is an occupational hazard of working for a Silicon Valley high-tech enterprise. Or maybe it's inherent in our times -- times when the pace of change and stunning innovation seems to accelerate hourly.
Republicans have a regrettable history of using key political moments for ridiculous publicity. However, for Dick Cheney to take an international crisis and turn it into a self-centered publicity campaign is a new low entirely.
Over my nearly 70 years as an entrepreneur, I have sometimes been described as a visionary, but this is really a misnomer. The truth is that I am a tremendous opportunist.
Like all great things in Monaghan's life, the idea behind these two books came to her when she least expected it.
I suddenly realized that it no longer felt novel to be turning virtual pages on a tiny lit up screen, checking out a conversation between people I'd never met about a story I wrote, in real time. "New media," I realized, is already old.
The Silicon Valley tech giants want to reform government surveillance on the Internet? That's what they say, anyway.
Old ideas die hard. But today's romances more and more reflect that smart women and men are neither marrying up or marrying down -- we're just marrying the right person.
For the first time in my life, I can confidently say that most news is not making us smarter -- it is making us dumber.
The death of the American steel industry is fine with the likes of the Wall Street Journal, Forbes and the Cato Institute. They say Americans should thank foreign states that violate international trade laws by subsidizing their steel industries.
The progress made by Michigan home care workers since 2005 was undone when legislators decided to exclude them from the state's definition of public employees. Without adequate wages and benefits, the home care workforce is not sustainable.
