They Would Do Anything For Ratings… But They Won’t Do That

A while back, I stumbled across a fascinating interview with Brit Hume of the Fox News Channel. Hume was being asked questions by a non-Fox interviewer about the success of FNC, and why he believes the network has stayed on top of the cable news ratings for as many years as it has. After offering…

About a year and a half ago, I wrote a column on this website about comedian Bill Maher. It was in regard to an asinine comment he had recently made about then presidential candidate, Herman Cain.

The other day, something prompted me to think of an old movie I haven’t seen in a long, long time. “I Come In Peace” is its name. It’s a low-budget, science-fiction flick from the early ’90s that stars Hollywood action icon, Dolph Lundgren. The movie was such a huge hit, that I think I’m one…

I used to appreciate the Fox News appearances of former Bill Clinton adviser, Dick Morris. I thought he brought a unique and informed perspective to his political analysis. His observations were insightful, his take on events made sense, and his bold predictions were thought-provoking. Many others clearly felt the same way. In addition to pulling…

On Sunday, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta confirmed what many have believed since the death of Osama Bin Laden: Our waterboarding of top Al Qaeda operatives in the wake of 9/11 ultimately led to the whereabouts and killing of the terrorist mastermind. Speaking to Chuck Todd on NBC’s Meet the Press, Panetta revealed the information when…
