Power of the press is reporting the news consumers need

The power of the press rests in the ability of journalists to hold government accountable, to mobilize public opinion on matters that are important to individuals, communities or the nation, and to provide necessary information of value.

Why community newspapers matter

ROLLING FORK, Miss.- The chosen theme for this year's National Newspaper Week is "Power of the Press," and that power, it seems to me, is a very relative thing.

The Lingering Problem of Race Relations

Race relations have returned to the forefront of our national discussion over the last several years. Unless one refers to illegal immigration, relations in question almost always pertain to blacks and whites.

Time for Sensible Background Checks

In the wake of the recent homicidal shooting rampage at an Oregon community college, I'm forced to come to the conclusion that it is high time for common sense national background checks for journalists.

Take Away Our Guns, Obama? Hell No!

Donald Trump - America's loveable bull in a china shop - was an eagerly anticipated speaker at the 2015 Values Voter Summit, a conference that brings hundreds of evangelical activists to the nation's capital. Think of the summit as the Christian answer to Burning Man, without the gratuitous sex, drug use and an important reversal in which the goal is to avoid burning.
