Beating Back the Drive-By Media on Hillary’s Emails

As nature abhors a vacuum, so the drive-by media is hungry to control and define any public figure whose impact might supersede their own. How do we beat them?  Whether we believe that Hillary Clinton’s “email-gate” is empty click-bait or something substantive, the amount of feverish news coverage generated in advance of securing the facts telegraphs that mainstream media is flailing in an effort to...

Hillary’s Emails: Truth Trumps Media Madness

Notwithstanding feverish media squeals about Hillary Clinton’s “private” email usage as Secretary of State, the fact is she adhered to the laws in place during her 4 years in that position.  The law insisting solely upon .gov email usage for government employees was not passed until nearly two years after Clinton left office, as Clinton made clear in today’s press conference.  Click-hungry pundits and agenda...

Hillary’s Emails: Scandal or Smear?

Republicans got a huge assist from mainstream media this week in their quest to smear Hillary Clinton, thereby arresting her path to the Presidency in 2016.  Press outlets, led by familiar Hillary-bashers MSNBC and The New York Times employed questionable reporting in an effort to manufacture scandal out of Hillary’s private email use during her time as Secretary of State.  Facts can be inconvenient things:...

End Domestic Violence or Protect a Franchise?

We get mixed messages when it comes to domestic violence. The Grammys and the NFL, for example, trumpet an end to physical and emotional abuse of women, yet near daily news reports telegraph that an athlete’s or pop star’s franchise is held at a higher premium than a woman’s safety. click pic to watch interview  This will only change when enough people with a bully...

Beyond Obama’s Tepid Grammy PSA on Domestic Violence

While the Grammys only dipped a toe in the water of stopping domestic violence, activist Brooke Axtell made clear at Sunday night’s event that she was able to survive an abusive situation and later thrive because of one supportive voice. Apart from the frustrating juxtaposition of President Obama’s PSA on stopping violence while abuser and Grammy nominee Chris Brown sat in the audience, the important...

The Grammys’ Conflicting Message on Domestic Violence

Does Ray Rice Get to Hide Behind His Wife?

Months ago, I predicted Ray Rice’s permanent suspension from the NFL would be overturned. Does anyone doubt that he will play pro ball again? If the NFL didn’t want Rice back, would we see a continuation of the Janay Rice apology/justification/Ray-habilitation tour broadcast by none other than The Today Show? In the rush to stage this mea culpa, we risk losing focus on the video...

Anita Finlay and Jerry Doyle Talk Tech Giants Freezing Women’s Eggs! 10/15/2014

When I read the headline that Apple and Facebook are now offering to freeze female employees’ eggs as a perk of employment, I thought I had entered the Twilight Zone! Is that taking progress a bit too far?  Is this move a way for companies to push women to push their choice to have children later and later in life? Convenient for the company.  Not necessarily...

Ending Domestic Violence, a Talk with Anita Finlay & Jerry Doyle, 9/16/2014

Ray Rice’s indefinite suspension from the Baltimore Ravens for the physical abuse of his then fiancée Janay Palmer has sparked a national conversation about domestic violence. Even though the NFL seemed backed into a corner and had to hand out more severe punishment than its initially lenient “two game suspension,” it remains to be seen whether this subject will occupy a few more news cycles and then fade...

Is the Ray Rice Incident a Watershed Moment on Domestic Violence?

The video of Ray Rice knocking his then-fiancée Janay Palmer unconscious and dragging her from a casino elevator has by now gone viral.  The first sin was the violence itself.  The second sin was the NFL attempting to dismiss it by issuing a Rice paltry two-game suspension as “punishment,” bringing into sharp focus how we still minimize vile and violent behavior toward women in this...
