Times are a changing. With "peak oil" finally in proper perspective the hegemony of OPEC over the oil market is starting to sunder. The ascendancy of oil production in many corners of the world is beginning to change the accepted rules of the market.
The Cramer interview is breathtaking in exposing the administration's total lack of understanding of the distorted formation of the price of oil and gasoline in today's markets and seemingly impervious to its cost to the economy and its destructive impact on jobs.
Now that the TechCrunch editorial dispute has been resolved, let me turn my attention to the Wall Street Journal's coverage of it. In the most egregious case of mislabeling this side of Zabar's no lobster "lobster salad," the Journal's front page, above-the-fold story on Saturday sought to paint the situation as a "culture clash" based on "clashing personalities." It was, in fact, nothing of the kind. The issue at hand wasn't about personalities. It was about principle; a very simple fundamental principle about conflicts of interest that every journalistic enterprise -- including the Wall Street Journal -- adheres to. But you wouldn't know that from the exceptionally misinformed, substance-lite, and anonymous-quote-riddled piece. There is one upside to this shoddy journalism: the Journal reporters got the story so wrong, at least we know they aren't hacking into our phones.

There may be no group of people in the world more out of touch with reality than super-rich CEOs of major U.S. companies railing against Warren Buffett's suggestion that the rich should pay higher taxes.
I had a call from NASA to be their artist spokesperson for the opening of NASA Art/50 Years at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. NASA ...
Are we still talking about this whole phone-hacking scandal at News Corp.? Profits are up at News Corp. And, as Rupert Murdoch assured investors yesterday, "There can be no doubt about our commitment to ethics and integrity."
Actions Speak Louder than Words As a presentations coach, I show archival videos as positive and negative role models to demonstrate what participant...
On Friday S&P downgraded U.S debt from AAA to AA+, the first such downgrade in the nation's history resulting in grave concerns over the outlook for the U.S. economy. Yet simultaneously they must have been popping champagne corks at Pimco.
The bill could be perceived by some as essentially un-Jewish. However, in order to reach a proper conclusion in this debate, what needs to be determined is an authentic Jewish perspective on wealth redistribution and charity in general.
Years ago, in the wake of Watergate, I wrote a novel titled The Henderson Equation which dealt with the following premise: If media, meaning a...
Cool ad spots and viral marketing are a given. But there are several ways to skin a cat, and hopefully the Gap will be firing on all cylinders.
If I were a hobbit, right about now I would be wondering just how the heck I wound up at the center of this Washington intraparty political fight, personally.
The U.S. State Department is in the rare position of having to decide on an environmental issue. Hillary Clinton is in the tar sands hot seat. Is she asking the right questions?
