Depictions of race get real, complicated on 'Star,' 'This Is Us'

Since watching "Hairspray Live" Wednesday, with its story of racial relations in 1962 Baltimore, I have been thinking a lot about race and television. One of my main thoughts: New network series like NBC's "This Is Us" and Fox's "Star," which debuts Wednesday, show how much more complex depictions...

    On "Reliable Sources," we take on Donald Trump's lying tweets

    Donald Trump gave us a preview last week of how he would use Twitter to govern - bypassing the press as much as possible. I wrote about in Sunday's paper.

    Lin-Manuel Miranda's 'Drunk History' version of Hamilton a delight

    “Drunk History” is almost always a subversive delight. But this week’s edition with Lin-Manuel Miranda doing a bombed version of Alexander Hamilton's life is something special. Creator Derek Waters and Miranda don’t waste a second getting transgressive. The episode opens looking much like a recent...
