    Lewis Katz death is a blow to news media culture
    In 1972, Philadelphia's leading newspaper was based in a mostly windowless building that looked like and had the atmosphere of a huge mausoleum. That was the year I somehow landed a job with The Associated Press, which had its Philadelphia office in a...
  • Allow me to convince you, AP Stylebook

    In what should be a cautionary example of being careful what you ask for, the Associated Press Stylebook has tweeted an invitation to identify what people like and dislike in the new edition. The Lord has delivered them into my hands.  When I first...
  • Defending national champs Florida State No. 1 in AP pre-season poll

    Florida State, for what it's worth these days, was an overwhelming pick for No. 1 in Sunday's release of the Associated Press pre-season college football poll. The Seminoles garnered 57 of the available 60 first place votes. Florida State is followed by...

    Texas filibuster captures nation's attention all day and all night

    Virginia has gone undefeated in non-conference play only once in the last 15 football seasons, in 2005, and with No. 2 Oregon visiting Scott Stadium on Saturday, that trend figures to continue. The Cavaliers upset No. 2 Florida State at home in 1995,...
  • The AP's complicated word-association test

    In what may be the greatest victory to date for the sophisticatedly asinine organization "No Labels," the Associated Press has embraced a new policy against "labeling people." For instance, its widely used and influential style guide is being purged of...
  • Going my way

    I hate to seem disloyal, but it doesn't take much to touch off a kerfuffle among copy editors. And now a new one is underway.  Yes, underway, the word the Associated Press Stylebook, in all its pomp and majesty declared last week to be a single word...
  • Obama administration assaults press freedom

    Obama administration assaults press freedom
    In Washington, as in any seat of power, most acts of folly begin with hubris. Government leaders, elected or appointed, usually don't intend to do the wrong thing, to overstep or cause harm, but they become so convinced, so certain of their purpose,...
  • AP case fuels complaints on Obama whistle-blower policies

    The Justice Department's secret review of Associated Press telephone records gives advocates for federal employees one more reason to doubt the Obama administration's full commitment to protecting whistleblowers, particularly those in national security...
  • Days of our guiding light

    The 2013 edition of the Associated Press Stylebook arrived in the mail yesterday, the sixtieth consecutive annual publication of the stylebook, and frankly, I am at a loss to understand its appeal.  The AP Stylebook has outlasted the daytime serial...
