In my conversation with Marshall Ganz, the veteran activist and organizer challenges the notion of the 'free market' as an effective way to address our economic, political, and moral issues. Instead, he proposes more collaborative solutions.
More than a quarter of people told us that they'd go elsewhere if video wasn't available at their preferred news source. This isn't surprising. Remember how "chimney cam" became compulsive viewing as we waited while the conclave elected a new pontiff? Now imagine it without the chimney. Or the cam.
Cortlan is about to make history as one of only two Black men to finish Harvard Law School at just 22 years of age. In this clip from Tavis Smiley on PBS, the phenom talks to me about demystifying Harvard Law for Black youth.
For a long time now I've been saying this and, thanks to Sanford, I feel like I'm getting a very nice little shot of pure validation at the moment: scandals don't last anymore.

The decision by the UK publishers not to distribute Amanda Knox's autobiography has been interpreted in some media circles as being another example of the detrimental impact of our so called draconian libel laws. In reality, the publisher's...Show More Summary
There are a number of reasons why this is important, including the fact that it may scuttle the chance (if there ever was one) for any deal. But something else makes this development what the Vice President of the United States might call "a big effin' deal": It tells us once and for all where the real political center lies.
Are maids a realistic reflection of Latinas in America today?? Yes, but they are not a reflection of every Latina. Stereotypes are constructed and perpetuated by those who believe in them. I choose not to.
I enjoy watching Real Time with Bill Maher whenever I can, and I especially appreciate the wittiness and humor of his New Rules. Alas, whenever the subject of Islam and the Middle East pops, the show turns ugly.
To all those out there who sometimes act like superior human beings I ask, "Ain't you tired?" I'm tired. I'm tired of conservative, straight Christians like Mr. Broussard saying that they're OK with gay people but think we should constantly fight against our same-sex attraction.
In comes Paul Krugman of the New York Times. Almost single-handedly he has made the case for stimulus and investment, and disemboweled the idea that spending cuts will get us out of this long, slow glide to economic oblivion.
BuzzFeed hired Reuters' Peter Lauria in March to launch a new business section and added Bloomberg's Sapna Maheshwari a few weeks later. Now the site...
Maybe all the outbursts are doing us a favor by allowing us to understand and address homophobia. But the outbursts can only be helpful if they are taken seriously and not dismissed or censored by the outrage police.
They told me -- in an assignment that asked them to reflect on how they heard of the marathon bombing -- that Boston hit them hard because they learned of the news by themselves, and often when they were alone, away from family.
Jeff Zucker is serious about cleaning up CNN. Jeff Zucker is serious about cleaning up CNN. NPR has a journalist willing to criticize the liberal media.
Hail, hail, the gang's nearly all here. Michael Gordon, Thomas Friedman, now Bill Keller. Paging Judy Miller! The New York Times in recent days on...
On Sunday 28th April, the Iraqi Communications and Media Commission announced the suspension of the operating licenses of nine Iraqi Satellite TV Stations and the closure of the Baghdad Offices of Al Jazeera Arabic. The justification given was that the mainly Sunni stations were inciting hatred and divisions in Iraq.
As a lifelong reader of the Times, I was interested in how the Times was evolving in the face of the rising influence of the Internet and the changing business model in which advertisers were taking less space if any in the print pa...
Konnichiwa! I'm here in Tokyo with our talented HuffPost Japan team in our Akihabara offices to launch HuffPost Japan, our first edition in Asia. We are all elated that after launching editions in the UK, Canada, France, Spain, and Italy, HuffPost has gone east -- not only to a new country, but to a new continent. Show More Summary
This Sunday's episode of 60 Minutes was a brilliant case study in the media's ability to manipulate the public mind. The entire hour is worth studying, if only as one of the most illuminating and sophisticated examples of media manipulation in recent memory.
