Where are you Hillary?

Imagine Donald Trump sitting in the Situation Room making life or death decisions on behalf of the United States.

Our veterans and their families deserve a president who doesn't disrespect and disparage their sacrifices.

Not one living president has said they believe Donald Trump has what it takes to be Commander-in-Chief.

To love or to hate... Donald Trump

To love or to hate... Donald Trump

The WPI program started almost one month ago. In these days, the most repeated thing is that this 2016 presidential election is unusual, the most weird election in the recent years of the United States.

The value of editorial independence

Piles of papers stacked at the edge of desks. Cups of coffee that were left behind due to the rush. Phones ringing and old headlines highlighted with red marker hanging in the walls.

Postkard from Amerika: UPSTART STARTUPS IN MEDIA SHAKEUP

Welcome to the brave new media world, where lumbering giants are being humbled by nimbler johnnies-come-lately. A world where senior editors of venerable newspapers have the deer-in-the-headlights look while those of new media outlets have a precocious twinkle in their eyes. After visiting several flagship newspapers around the United States, it is clear that the business model that the print media relied on for decades does not work anymore.

Rep Keith Ellison, the first Muslim to be elected to Congress, said he fully backs President Barack Obama on whatever action is needed to punish the Syrian regime after it used chemical weapons against its own people. “It’s not a sure thing, but if we get this through Congress, it will be three days of Tomahawk strikes on certain arsenals and instruments that the regime used to deliver the gas.

Dan Rather: U.S. reporting on the conflict is Israel-centric

 

It’s kind of strange to see up close someone who has been a familiar television face for me for decades. So, when Dan Rather looked me straight in the eye, I had to look around to see if everybody else was as starstruck as I was. I think they were.
