A News Media of Trekkies

The first celebrity I ever met was actor William Shatner. It was back in the 1980s. I was probably twelve or thirteen at the time. Shatner was making an appearance at a car show in Denver that I went to with my family. I stood in a long line for nearly two hours to get…

The News Media’s Comical Resistance to the Koch Brothers

Last week, the New York Times reported that conservative businessmen, Charles and David Koch, are showing some interest in purchasing eight regional newspapers currently owned by the Tribune Company. They include the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Sun, Orlando Sentinel and Hartford Courant. It didn’t take long for the story to spread fear among…

‘Accidental Racist’ Feels Like a Symptom of Munchausen Syndrome

I’m not going to waste any time critiquing the lyrics of “Accidental Racist”, the controversial new song performed by singers Brad Paisley and LL Cool J. The mainstream media clearly has a fascination with the duo’s awkward attempt to begin another national dialogue on racism, but I honestly find stuff like this to be sophomoric…

Media Ignore Mass Murder Trial

Remember all the attention the media gave to the O.J. Simpson murder trial?  How could they resist, especially TV, since cameras were allowed in the courtroom? A super star football player, who’s black, is charged with killing his wife and the young man who was with her, both of whom are white.  Never mind what…

Hypocrite-in-Chief

Hypocrisy – n. The practice of professing beliefs, feelings or virtues that one does not hold or possess; insincerity. While claiming his concern for America’s children, President Obama cancels White House tours instead of cutting the countless numbers of wasteful projects, grants, and studies that fail to benefit any American life.  Hypocrisy at its finest. Sequestration was part…

….If A Conservative Said That?

I’m old enough to know better by now, but I’m still amazed how Democrats and liberals can get away with saying a whole lot of stuff while, if said by a Republican or conservative, they’re ignored or ridiculed by the mainstream media. One of the latest comments is from New Jersey Democrat Sen. Bob Menendez who’s now…

The B-Movie Presidency With A-List Media Compliance

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…

Reality TV Pitch: Mainstream Media Rehab

drew

Like many college students back in the early 1990s, I found MTV’s The Real World to be an entertaining novelty that was interesting to watch. However, I never would have expected it to spawn a wildly-popular television genre that has claimed a lasting position in our pop-culture for the past twenty years. Yes, realty television…
