The Sixties

It’s late to mention something that started on May 29, but CNN’s original series “The Sixties” is wonderful television. Whether it’s because I was there and old enough to be […]

They wanted to change their world

Seeking the latest news on the Russian invasion of Ukraine this evening, I came across a CNN opinion piece entitled “What the West owes Ukraine.” Yes, I thought. What do […]

Offending the uninvited

We’ve taken political correctness to ridiculous extremes in this country, and I’ve ranted about it before. These days you can scarcely say or do anything without offending someone. It just […]

Anderson Cooper rips Pat Robertson

Anderson Cooper went after Pat Robertson on his AC360 Ridiculist Wednesday night, and it was a thing of beauty. Robertson is a pathetic, hateful old man who deserves all the ridicule […]

Have you met Perfect Polly?

Had this commercial aired during Saturday Night Live, I’d have thought it was part of the show. But it aired this afternoon on CNN. I’d have thought it was a […]

EF4 or EF5 tornado hits Moore, Okla.

Just turned on CNN for the first time today, looking for reports on yesterday’s tornado damage around Oklahoma City. I was met with live coverage of damage, but it was […]

Tornadoes, technology, and hometowns

Media errors in Boston irresponsible

You’d think with a story as important as the Boston bombing, the media would be more careful about what they report. CNN must have been talking for two hours about […]

CNN stuck in story-of-the-day mode

Yesterday the only story CNN seemed willing to report was Christopher Dorner. In keeping with their one-story-per-day habit, today they are fixated on watching the powerless Carnival Triumph being towed […]

Fareed Zakaria

Zakaria cleared; returns to CNN this month

It’s only right that, having reluctantly joined the ranks of those who thought Fareed Zakaria might actually be a plagiarist, I now join the ranks of those who accept Time‘s and CNN’s conclusion […]

Jack Cafferty

Cafferty, guns, and the campaign

Jack Cafferty just read my comment on CNN. It was in response to his commentary and question: In light of the Colorado shootings, what kind of role should gun control […]

Whatever Sarah wants, Sarah (still) gets

I was enjoying my morning coffee, still in that comfy half-awake, pre-caffeinated state, easing into my day, sort of watching CNN because it’s a totally passive endeavor. And suddenly there […]
