You Can’t Make Trump What He Isn’t

Instead of trying to turn Donald Trump into Mitt Romney, I suggest the campaign junta stop trying to construct a Debatetron 5000 and instead get Trump to utilize the assets that won him the nomination: Humor, the ability to connect with an audience and a willingness to say what programmed politicians won't.

After Peres, Is Peace Possible in the Middle East?

Holt’s great divide

As a syndicated newspaper columnist, a Clinton supporter, and one who teaches journalism to high school students, I was taken aback by reaction to – and pigeonholing of – my criticism of moderator Lester Holt in the first presidential debate.

Debunking the newspapers are dying idea

Imagine waking up in a world without newspapers. "Ha!" You say, "I haven't gotten a newspaper in years." But I'm not talking about just the paper delivered by carriers or the postal service. I'm talking about the news online, the links on social media, the email newsletter, the source cited in the television broadcast and the push notification on your phone. The word newspaper no longer reflects the media industry encompassed by the word.

October Surprises

Something craven infects political candidates as the days dwindle down to a precious few, especially when prospects for victory appear slimmer than an emaciated giraffe in a fun house mirror. It may be darkest before the dawn, but for those scheduled to be executed at first light, the darkness triggers a kind of dastardly creativity that those made of lesser stuff might characterize as desperation.
