  • Big loser: Republican Party; Big winner: Ted Cruz

    Whew! That was close. We almost went over the cliff, but were spared at the 11th hour by a half-hearted deal that re-opens the government -- but only till January 15; raises the debt ceiling -- but only till February 7; and creates a bicameral, bipartisan...

    Keith Olbermann returns to ESPN to talk sports and hate on the media
    Keith Olbermann's back and he knows you missed him during all those long months since he quit his Current TV gig (or years since he left MSNBC), even if you didn't know it yourself. And so on Monday night he returned to to ESPN where, he will be happy...

    Al Jazeera America off to a slow ratings start
    Al Jazeera America made its debut on Aug. 20, and the first week of ratings are in. And they're pretty darn low. According to TV Newser, the highest-rated show on the station, which replaced Current TV, was the Thursday airing of "Real Money With Ali...

  • No easy answer on Syria

    To bomb, or not to bomb Syria? That is the question of the day. And there's no easy answer. Let's start with the givens. We know the deployment of chemical weapons is not just a "red line" drawn by President Obama. Their use has been universally...
  • Obama's 'rookie' mistake on Syria

    It was one of the biggest surprises pulled off by any president. The entire nation tuned in on Saturday afternoon, August 31, to hear President Obama detail his plans to bomb Syria in retaliation for Bashar al-Assad's use of chemical weapons. Instead,...
  • Al Gore, with reported $200 million, almost as rich as Mitt Romney

    Al Gore and Mitt Romney have little in common -- except, perhaps, their net worth. Gore, the environmental activist and former U.S. vice president, has amassed a net worth that may exceed $200 million, according to an analysis by Bloomberg. That’s...
  • Al Jazeera America Begins Uphill Struggle for U.S. Toehold

    A serious-minded news channel, with a name -- Al Jazeera America -- that's almost an invitation to Islamophobia? What, were the names "Please Don't Watch Us" or "This Will Cause a Painful Rash" taken? Al Jazeera America made its debut Tuesday, kicking...
  • Why Al Jazeera buying Current is a good thing for media, country

    Why Al Jazeera buying Current is a good thing for media, country
    I don’t care if Al Gore got more money than he ever deserved for his pathetic channel, or Glenn Beck got the short end of the stick in trying to buy it as an escape from his prison of media marginalization. All of that is ideological and...
  • Of course Al Jazeera has a bias, but it's not what most critics think

    Reading some of the nutty coverage of Al Jazeera's purchase of Current TV from Al Gore, I am not sure whether the problem is ideology or ignorance when it comes to the sorry state of media criticism today. Last week, I explained why I thought Al...
