I want my Newscasters to be grisled and bruised. I want their shirts to be crumpled and their cuffs frayed. I’m weary of the coiffed, polished and pressed. The tailored suits and the long lashes. News shouldn’t look like fashion. It should look like news.

I understand that you dislike the policies of the democratic party, and think that Hillary would take us down a path opposite where you think we should go. I’m being honest; I can sense the gut wrench of your decision, and don’t envy it. […]
This age may not be as good for humanity as is commonly assumed. We are in grave danger of being harmed by too much information. Information, on its own, is neither good nor bad.

I became angry at a fellow Democrat this weekend… he’s a solid Hillary Clinton supporter, never a doubt that she was going to vote for her. But over drinks, she said what we all hear over and over again about HRC: “She’s a liar, she’s power-hungry, she’s…” You know the list. Dear Everybody…Here are some […]

here’s a common narrative this election cycle that most voters are simply holding their nose and choosing the lesser evil. For example, Chris Cillizza tweeted this today: This election is about voters choosing the least worst candidate. That's where we are in our politics. — Chris Cillizza (@TheFix) September 4, 2016 The problem with this narrative […]

Here is my answer: Building a Scale: 1 to 10, 10 being the most racist. Clinton: 2 or 3 Let’s say there’s a dividing line at 5, and the dividing point is whether […]
Wikileaks has been dubbed “Journalism” in an attempt to secure a measure of legitimacy for what they do. Recently, I heard the analogy that Wikileaks is like Deep Throat and Woodward and Bernstein of Watergate fame. Wikileaks are not Deep Throat or Woodward and Bernstein. Wikileaks are the burglars who broke into the Democratic National […]
