  • '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...

    'Downton Abbey' recap, Anna's heartbreaking tragedy
    So this is the storyline that divided "Downton" fans in the U.K. And it's easy to see why. Anna has always been the one "Downton" character, upstairs or downstairs, who we all rooted for and loved from the beginning. She's been through a lot: covering...

    A sample of the real Dame Nellie Melba for fans of 'Downton Abbey'
    Sunday night's installment of this season's "Downton Abbey" will be most talked about because of what happened below stairs while everyone else was attending a recital by the legendary Dame Nellie Melba. I figured dear old Melba deserved a wee bit...
