No, Donald Trump, The Clinton Foundation Should Not Shut Down

Vishal Khetpal | August 24, 2016 | Politics
In addition to drawing blood from his political rival, Trump's latest cry for attention perfectly fits into his narrative of a rigged political system shortchanging real Americans.

Sustaining The Olympic Legacy: Women, Sports, And Public Policy

Beth Brooke-Marciniak | August 24, 2016 | Impact
The Summer Olympics inspire us. They motivate us. For a few weeks every 4 years, we focus on achievement, hard work, pain, glory, and defeat in stunning athletic competition. And this year, we cannot miss the good news story of not just of one athlete, but of a whole group of athletes -- women.

Reese Schonfeld | August 24, 2016 | Media
News of John McLaughlin's death last week took me back twenty-seven years to the time when he moderated A Matter of Life and Death, a TV show that Ward Sylvester and I produced that was seen by large audiences in more than 200 television markets.

Joseph Sikora's Tommy Egan in Power: Finally, a White Guy Who's Not in the Black World To Save Anybody

David Hinckley | August 24, 2016 | Entertainment
It's no big secret that television "diversity" these days often means casting a black actor as the incongruous best friend of the lead actor in an otherwise all-white world. Joseph Sikora's Tommy Egan in the Starz drama Power is the flip side. He's the white best friend in an otherwise...

The Media and Labor's Inferiority Complex

David Macaray | August 24, 2016 | Media
If it were possible for Donald Trump to surgically remove a tiny fragment of his ego, and graft the little bugger onto the personality of organized labor, we would see a dramatic change in the way America's labor unions handle themselves. Instead of behaving clumsily and timidly--instead of looking all...
