  • Helen Thomas opened journalism for women

    Helen Thomas, the cranky White House correspondent who once said that there is no such thing as a rude question from a reporter, died last week at 92, her pioneering reputation tarnished by a streak of anger her role as a journalist had masked. After...

    The reverberations of our disastrous war in Iraq

  • When president checks out, abuses mount

    When president checks out, abuses mount
    May has been a rough month for President Barack Obama: more Benghazi developments, plus the breaking IRS and journo-bugging scandals. Taken separately, none of these episodes is fatal. They do not reach Watergate levels. Given that previously classified...
  • Immigration reform would be a win for Obama and the country

    Immigration reform would be a win for Obama and the country
    Presidential second terms tend to be disasters, but, to paraphrase Tolstoy's Anna Karenina, each is disastrous in its own way. The big domestic initiative of George W. Bush's second term was Social Security privatization. Politically, it was a...

    Witcover on Germond: He was committed to the end to what always was a labor of love
    American journalism has lost a giant in the passing at 85 of Jack Germond, my longtime pal and partner in the joyful chronicling of the antics and outrages of political reformers and rogues alike over the last half-century. Long before we teamed up to...
