  • A 'NewsHour' filled with reruns and PBS promotion -- not so much the news

    A 'NewsHour' filled with reruns and PBS promotion -- not so much the news
    Earlier this year, I wrote about PBS "NewsHour" losing almost half its audience the last eight years and now averaging under a million viewers a night. I attributed that in part to the program not actually reporting news as much as talking to reporters...

  • Last weekend before Christmas in Baltimore offers two 'Nutcracker' productions

    Last weekend before Christmas in Baltimore offers two 'Nutcracker' productions
    Even people who ordinarily find ballet a tough nut to crack can find themselves falling for the charms of "The Nutcracker." Set to an ear worm-filled score by Tchaikovsky, the ballet tells a Christmas Eve story of childhood and fantasy, toys and sweets,...

    Unsure of your affiliation? Take this test [Commentary]

    Ruffling feathers  [Editorial]
    Every once in a while, a media kerfuffle arrives that succeeds in elevating some banal stupidity to unimaginable heights of urgency and importance. At the center of the frenzy is usually some basic cable TV program of questionable artistic merit but...

    Under Armour inundated with 'Duck Dynasty' fan mail
    Under Armour may not want to talk about "Duck Dynasty," but fans of the now controversial reality show took to the Baltimore-based company's social media accounts this weekend to praise Under Armour for sticking by the embattled franchise. Other than...

    CBS wasn't as bad as the Ravens, but it wasn't much better Sunday
    With the Ravens playing such a sloppy, stupid game Sunday, it’s not fair to totally blame CBS for a lackluster telecast. So, I won’t. Except for one thing: I wish play-by-play announcer Jim Nantz and analyst Phil Simms would have had the...

    Best on Baltimore stages in 2013
    The arts world tends to think in terms of September-to-June seasons, rather than calendar years, but it's still fun to look back on the past 12 months and relive the performances that offered extra satisfaction. Although I may have missed some great...

    MOOCs: Over already? [Commentary]
    In the summer of 2011, Sebastian Thrun lit a fire under colleges around the world. The Stanford professor and a colleague filmed themselves lecturing for their course on artificial intelligence and put the videos online so that anyone could join....
  • 'NewsHour' criticism misses the mark [Letter]

    In response David Zurawik's column, "A 'NewsHour' filled with reruns and PBS promotion — not so much the news" (Dec. 19), I have to respectfully disagree. I worked at the NewsHour for two years, from 2011 to 2013, and had been an avid viewer long...
