  • Paycheck Fairness Act: Good politics, good policy

    Paycheck Fairness Act: Good politics, good policy

    Cable TV news the biggest loser in Wisconsin recall
    UPDATES WITH LINK TO RESPONSE POST BY GRETA VAN SUSTEREN: After watching coverage of the Wisconsin recall, I am convinced more than ever that it's time for a major press gut check. We have been in real trouble for a long time with cable TV news, but we...
  • Sun's coverage of Walker win reveals bias

    For shame. While most of the major newspapers in the world noted Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's victory in the recall election on Wednesday morning, The Sun relegated the article to page 5 ("Wis. Governor survives recall," June 6). It is a major loss...
  • Tea party could learn from 'The Help'

    After seeing the new movie "The Help," it struck me what a timely reminder the film is of the struggle for civil rights and the delicate, still relevant issue of race in America. I've grown so tired of hearing conservatives say, "you guys only support...
