Howard's Daily: One Clear Advantage of Charter Schools

Philip K. Howard | Posted 05.11.2014 | Education
Philip K. Howard

The huge advantage of charter schools is that everybody involved -- teachers, parents, and yes, even funders -- have a sense of ownership. The operative question, at all times, is this: "What's the right thing to do?"

The Wisdom of Privacy

Mark Weinstein

The wisdom of privacy is fundamental to the healthy evolution and future of human beings. It is perhaps the most essential ingredient of the natural order and balance in the social milieu and for a healthy human existence on earth. It makes the privacy revolution we are facing real, relevant, and vital to preserving ourselves as societies and individuals.

Howard's Daily: A Better Conservative Critique

Philip K. Howard | Posted 04.05.2014 | Politics
Philip K. Howard

Today's mainstream conservatives are predictably anti-big government -- a theme that ignores how government oversight is often essential to freedom in an interdependent society. Just as freedom requires cops on the street, so too it requires inspectors to safeguard against unsanitary restaurants and dingy nursing homes.

Freedom From Unauthorized Intrusion

Mark Weinstein | Posted 01.23.2014 | Technology

Merriam-Webster's online dictionary defines privacy as "freedom from unauthorized intrusion." The United States government defines privacy as "freedom from unauthorized intrusion, except by us." Personally I prefer the former definition.

From fighting for working families to ensuring that Americans have access to equal rights, Democrats are on the right side of voters and the right side of history, and we are in a solid position moving into the elections later this year, in 2014, and for elections to come.

Remember the "Trio of Scandals?" Don't. An Open Letter to Williams, Sawyer, Pelley

Scandals are not merely screw-ups, stupidities, mistakes, policy disagreements. They imply elements of willful deception, illegality, corruption or immorality.

BOTH SIDES NOW: Obama Doctrine Recasts W's War

HuffPost Radio | Posted 05.26.2013 | Politics
HuffPost Radio

Ron Reagan and Mary Matalin debate Obama's speech refuting Bush-Cheneyism on terrorism. Was it transformational or largely rhetorical? No more treating local thugs as UBL? And despite Noonan's & Will's best efforts to blur Obama & Nixon, 44 has the Teflon of 40. 2011-11-29-20111107bothsidesnow.jpg

The Crazy Uncle Party

Our national politics increasingly resembles a party in which your crazy uncle got hold of the karaoke microphone and won't give it back until he finishes a paranoid rant. Maybe if you pour him another Manhattan, he'll pass out before all your guests leave.

Priceless Power of Labeling: Lessons From 'Obama's Scandals'

Rather than jumping into the heated battle of competing narratives about Obama's three "scandals" or ignoring this high-stakes story, follow it for insights on how to influence by labeling.

2011-11-29-20111107bothsidesnow.jpgWhat a week for Republicans! It started with Obama fighting off simultaneous scandals and 24 coming back this Fall. But as Spitzer and Reagan discuss, by Friday the Scandals Scorecard revealed more smoke than fire. Who'll tell FOX?

Peggy Noonan Slams Obama?

Lev Raphael | Posted 06.26.2013 | Politics
Lev Raphael

I spoke at a writing conference in Michigan where she was the keynoter, and I can unequivocally say she gave the worst keynote I'd ever heard anywhere, despite her being Ronald Reagan's speech writer. I am not exaggerating about how awful she was.

Peggy Noonan and the Beleaguered 1 Percent

Joseph J. Thorndike | Posted 03.13.2013 | Politics
Joseph J. Thorndike

What irritates me is the extent to which Noonan is still out of touch with reality when it comes to the Republican brand. As long as Republicans can't see that people making $400,000 a year are actually rich, they will have a hard time building a new constituency for their party.

Early indications are that most conservative pundits won't face recriminations from within the GOP Noise Machine for getting everything wrong about the campaign. But will consumers finally revolt?

Moments: The Light Dawns on... Fox News

Lo and behold, the faith-based Mitt Romney surge in swing states oft prophesied in the Fox News Channel echo chamber simply wasn't materializing. But reality still eluded one of the biggest names on Fox. You may have heard about Karl Rove's antics last night.

Confirmation Overload

Brett C. Di Resta | Posted 10.29.2012 | Politics
Brett C. Di Resta

So why would Noonan suggest that this debate, as opposed to the other two dozen or so presidential debates he participated in, really defines Mr. Obama? Because it fits her preconceived notion of the president -- that he's a dull, unhappy man who is overmatched.

Worse Than Losing: How Obama Changed the Media Narrative

You're going to hear a lot of talk from President Obama's supporters today about why Romney's vastly superior performance didn't matter. Don't believe it. In fact, the first debate is going to matter a great deal in the days ahead.

Romney and the Calamitous Republicans

Bennet Kelley | Posted 11.25.2012 | Politics

The media is abuzz over what appears to be the implosion of the Romney campaign. Such a focus on the individual candidate's tactical ineptitude obscures the larger point that the Republican Party is just as calamitous on a substantive level.

Why Romney's Tax Release Makes His 'Rolling Calamity' Even Worse

Romney's release of only a summary of his taxes looks both disingenuous and incompetent -- just the qualities that make him so unelectable.
