You're Not Going to Get Away With It

I find it truly astounding that -- at a time when nearly everyone carries a device that can capture video, photos and audio, and then instantly upload that content online -- so many organizations still talk about transparency as if it is somehow optional. Or worse, aspirational.

The High Cost Of Sitting Down With Industry

The nutritional fable goes something like this: Rather than criticize industry for its questionable practices, health organizations should "sit at the table" with industry leaders and see what compromises can be reached. This all sounds wonderfully cooperative and democratic, but it also ignores some stark realities.

Did Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chair of the Democratic National Committee, actually just say that President Obama is the laziest president since Grover Cleveland?

The sharing economy is taking the world by storm -- creating multi-billion dollar companies overnight and inspiring millennial entrepreneurs to squeeze cash out of anything and everything they have lying around the house.

The Bergdahl issue has become a cultural labyrinth where escape is lost to the invisible walls of power, deceit and manipulation.

The dawning of the new year may usher in a seismic shift for at least two subjects in the political arena, because for the first time both proponents and opponents will be forced to frame their arguments based on actual, verifiable reality rather than just wildly overblown hopes or fears.

PolitiFact 'Lie of The Year': 'If You Like Your Plan, You Can Keep It'

HuffingtonPost.com | Jason Linkins | Posted 02.12.2014 | Politics

It's end of the year honors time, here in the media, and with it comes another round of remembering the most dubious political achievements of 2013. Over at PolitiFact, that means it's time for the "Lie Of The Year" -- a dishonor they've been bestowing since 2009, without managing to particularly discourage people from lying. There are years where PolitiFact whiffs rather badly, but this year, they get a lay-up.

Republican Leadership: If We Spin It We've Solved It

Let's be honest. The only thing the electorate loathes more than their elected leaders failing to get the job done is their elected leaders trying to spin their way out of those failures.

He backed up a couple of steps, held the door open for me, and, with a smile, said, "You first, old man." When I tell my friends about this, they say, "That was really an unkind thing for him to say." But I tell my family and friends how much I appreciated his comment, because it reflected the truth.

The Republicans have exercised so many spin control muscles that those muscles have started to act involuntarily and instantaneously. Like the heart at the core of any wild animal, the GOP has developed an instant if not repetitive spin for everything.

Rather than focusing on political tactics and news cycle spin, we focus on creating jobs. The Clintons have a brilliant job-creating (and deficit-reducing) record from the years of the Clinton presidency and can play an extraordinary role in generating new ideas.

When one couples physical fitness with a great cause, we find ourselves training harder to achieve our goals. The greater the cause, the harder the workout. I believe that there is a spark that ignites within and takes the workout and us to a higher level.

I promised myself that I would never reveal who I vote for in elections, and I still abide by that promise. Suffice to say, I got a bigger education after the election than I did in the months leading up to it.

Of course, words and images can undergo changes in meanings. What used to be acceptable can slip into disreputable. Suddenly, for example, sacrifice and compromise become dirty words. It would be nice if we could rise above such fears, control our hackles, keep our economy afloat.

The Death Knell of Political Spin

Steve Young | Posted 01.23.2014 | Politics

The conservative media dug up a 1996 video purported to show that Obama was a socialist. Nothing. They tried to resurrect the controversy over the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Nada. "We built that!" -- a waste of the convention banner budget.
