Former Vice President Dick Cheney is trying hard to salvage his legacy, so he is resorting to spin, distortion and lies. But why is the media paying attention to him?
Rachele Kanigel's "10 Tips for Training the Next Generation of Foreign Correspondents" immediately drew my attention but her headline didn't quite mat...
The Washington Post has removed the portion of its online job advertisement for a social media editor that listed among its job requirements the 'ability to explain to those twice your age what Reddit or Snapchat or Whisper or Fark is.' Many thought the ad was ageist.
Our educators must block test scores out of their minds and use data for diagnostic, instructional purposes.
We should be in the relationship business, said media guru Jeff Jarvis, suggesting our longstanding mantra that content is king needs revisiting. Cre...
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall is two years older than I am. For as long as I've known there was a Vietnam War, I've known that people leave objects at the Memorial.
