Simply put, the Fed pulled off a magic trick that would leave Houdini gasping. Janet Yellen and the Fed took the made-up money and bought Wall Street assets that would have otherwise crashed and gave money to Wall Street banks that would have otherwise gone bankrupt...with no strings attached.
Donald Trump puts on a show of being rich. There's that private jet stamped Trump. He assures everyone, ad nauseam, that he's really, really rich. But apparently it's all a sham.
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is experiencing a Renaissance.
WASHINGTON, DC -- Ten years ago, blogging wasn't new. People had been using weblogs to post tidbits and updates for a couple of years already. But Chr...
As I write that headline, I have to wonder why we all haven't been using the neologistic verb "Donald ducking" by this point in the presidential race. After all, a large part of Donald Trump's campaign has been built on the foundation of him ducking questions and issues that he doesn't want to talk about.

How are stories shared? What makes reporting ethical or unethical? These are just a few of the important questions that have been refined over time.
Donald Trump likes to brag on the campaign trail that he's the best at bribing politicians. He said, for example, "When you give, they do whatever the hell you want them to do." But then, when he got caught giving and getting exactly what the hell he wanted, he claimed that's not what happened.
Wow. We now know Colin Powell lied about giving advice on avoiding FOIA requests and public scrutiny of her emails to Hillary Clinton.
The Washington Post utilized SurveyMonkey to survey 74,886 registered voters in all 50 states on who they would vote for in the upcoming election. I a...
In the movie "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance," a superficially timid Eastern lawyer who finally faces down a notorious gunman who has beaten, bullie...
The media are dumbing down what is presented to readers and viewers to the extent that I'd argue it's bordering on criminal.
As a self-consumed, self-aggrandizing narcissist, Trump believes everyone else in the world exists to serve him. Even as he runs for president of the Unites States, Trump fails to understand and accept journalists' role, especially on the campaign trail.
Generally, we don't make decisions with the long view in mind. In the moment, we are likely to step into cognitive traps and let emotion influence us. When there is some interrupt in our routines, an opportunity for a reset is created.
Hillary will win despite the media just going along and repeating Trump's attempt to portray her as this dark person only out for herself. The American people are smarter than that and understand there is absolutely no comparison between her and Donald Trump.
