  • Romney and the GOP construct an alternate reality

    Romney and the GOP construct an alternate reality
    "We're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers," says Neil Newhouse, a Romney pollster. A half-dozen fact-checking organizations and websites have refuted Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan's claims that President Obama removed the work...
  • Despite what conservatives say, there's no 'liberal bias' in the mainstream media

    Recently I called a local radio talk show, not to blast President Barack Obama or ridicule Mitt Romney but to chide the conservative host and his conservative guest for their tiresome narrative about liberal bias in the "mainstream media.'" They...
  • On Libya attacks, Romney has a point

    On Libya attacks, Romney has a point
    The attack on the American consulate in Libya that left four dead, including our ambassador to that country, Chris Stevens, is outrageous and deplorable. The senseless loss of life there should be a cause of mourning for Americans, not a flash point in...

    Occupy anniversary: The 1 percent are winning
    It's been a good year for the 1 percent. The protesters who occupied public spaces in cities across the country, beginning with Wall Street on Sept. 17, 2011, garnered a great deal of attention for the idea that our democracy is being hijacked by the...
  • Arab 'anger' starts with flawed Islamic states

    McAfee ran the community-oriented Sunday afternoon softball league
    Skip McAfee is a man who cares. He cares that the rules are followed and the dates are right. In 1991, he cared enough to take over the task of breathing life back into the Columbia Inter-Village Co-Rec Softball League. The league, founded by Pat...
  • Controversial 'Fifty Shades' trilogy reaches historic sales milestone

    Controversial 'Fifty Shades' trilogy reaches historic sales milestone
    The racy "Fifty Shades" book series by E. L. James has been causing a stir since hitting shelves in April with its erotic plot line and subsequent ban in various libraries across the country. In Harford County, the public library system made the decision...
  • Best and worst of this year's presidential ads

    Today's topic: the billions (yes, with a "b") that will be spent on advertising in this year's presidential and congressional campaigns, and what kind of messages that money is sending. Like jazz, blues and musical comedy, the political ad is a...
  • Ehrlich column on taxes marred by sophistry, false comparisons

    ColumnistRobert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s recent commentary on taxes supposedly provided a lesson in Economics 101 ("When taxes go up, taxpayers go elsewhere," July 1). Unfortunately, he told only part of the story. His first example, concerning the supposed...
  • Biased media let Obama off easy

    I find it interesting that Jules Witcover can write a whole column on Mitt Romney calling mandatory health insurance a tax and his aide calling it a penalty ("Blame the candidate, not the campaign," July 10). No matter what you call it, most will not be...
  • The pressure's on, and the editor's gone

    Over at Poynter.org Craig Silverman has published an astute article about a clutch of recent cases of fabrication by young journalists, looking for the common elements. He finds them: carelessness about sourcing, willingness to manipulate quotes and...
  • Obama and Romney jockey for the Olympic vote

    Fresh off his trip abroad, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney accused President Barack Obama of undermining America's competitiveness in international sports competitions. "We have a president who apologizes for America's athletic...
