  • No rush to jump on Christie bandwagon

    It's no secret why the media loves a new political star. It's so much easier than digging into serious issues and doing real reporting. Last year, for 15 minutes each, they went gaga over Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry and Herman Cain. But, no doubt about...
  • The Kennedy legacy is real and lasting

    It was especially poignant to see Caroline Kennedy, America's new ambassador to Japan, present her credentials to Emperor Akihito this week. Coming just three days before the 50th anniversary of her father's assassination in Dallas, it was a vivid...
  • HealthCare.gov: How could they bungle it so badly?

    "There's a difference between book smart and street smart," a frustrated White House staffer told me last week. He didn't have to say any more. His meaning was clear. The Obama White House is filled with book smart people. It's the street smart ones...
  • Can a handshake ever be more than just a handshake?

    It was one of the most awe-inspiring events of our lifetime: Ninety world leaders joining 100,000 South Africans in Johannesburg's World Cup Stadium for a four-hour-long celebration of the life of Nelson Mandela. But what did the U.S. media focus on? Not...
  • Al Jazeera America Vows Expansion Push

    Barely two months on the air, Al Jazeera America is vowing to hire more staffers for the news channel and open more U.S. bureaus. The expansion push was detailed Tuesday morning by interim CEO Ehab Al Shihabi and prexy Kate O'Brian. It comes on the heels...

    Young Turks Network raises $4 million from former Louisiana governor
    Left-leaning political talk show host Cenk Uygur has raised $4 million to expand his digital video company the Young Turks Network, and the money comes from a seemingly unlikely source: Republican Buddy Roemer, the former governor of Louisiana. Roemer's...
  • Al Jazeera America Disbands Sports Group, Lays Off Freelancers

    Al Jazeera America has disbanded its sports unit and laid off a few dozen freelancers who were brought on for the launch of the news channel last summer. Most of the departures were freelancers who were always intended to have a finite stay following the...
  • A challenge from the left for Hillary?

    Most political reporters have already written the script for 2016: Hillary Clinton announces she will run for president shortly after the mid-term elections of November 2014, Democrats clear the field for her, she romps unscathed through the primaries,...
  • Congress for sale, now more than ever

    As chief justice, I have no doubt that John G. Roberts' number one goal is to turn this democracy into a plutocracy. And he's well on his way to doing so. It didn't start with the Roberts Court, of course. It started with the court's 1976 Buckley v....
  • Taliban documentary shows value of Al Jazeera America

    Taliban documentary shows value of Al Jazeera America
    Six months in, there is more to say about Al Jazeera America than that its ratings stink. But that's about the only thing I see written about the Qatar-owned cable channel these days. The ratings are minuscule — about one-half the audience that Al...
