Emmy award winning broadcaster and keynote speaker Ed Berliner shares his thoughts and commentary on issues of the day, and those that will make people truly think outside the box.

Knowledge vampires: Don’t let potential clients suck you dry.

It's one of the clear and present professional dangers, whether you're someone seeking a position with a new employer, or a firm of any kind seeking to convince a potential client that you, and only you, are the right person for the job. Like how I weaved that Tom Clancy reference into the first line? [...]

Pittsburgh murders demand self-examination of faith

It came as a news crawl. Those often choppy sentences hastily written, and then streamed across the bottom of the broadcast screen. News we've seen far too often, and despite our own admonitions, we've become desensitized to. Until the words strike at our familiar soul. Something close to home. Something that forces us to dig [...]

Politics, DNA, and how to fail at Leadership & Teamwork

While Democrats tout their gains to be made come Election Day 2018, and the numbers show they have good reason to be more than a little giddy, they do so at their own arrogant peril. Three events recently prove why Dems need to get their heads out of the organizational muck, and understand a simple [...]

3 Random Thoughts: Canadian Cannabis, Lessons of Vietnam, Biles Busts USAG

Those who have covered the sport for any great length of time, or even a short span of time when Larry Nassar was still around, all know the raging leadership cesspool that was USA Gymnastics. Those at the top have been turning a blind eye to the treatment of their athletes for decades, all in [...]

3 Random Thoughts: Chuckling Saudis, Warren Takes the Bait, Cultural Comic Nonsense

I honestly did spit out my coffee this morning when I heard news that the Saudi Arabian government was preparing to admit the murder of Washington Post journalist Adnan Khashoggi was an accident. All I could hear was a Saudi representative reading something to the effect, "Yes, his body was dismembered into plenty of tiny [...]

The generalization of all men condoning sexual assault must stop. Now.

At first, I thought it was an overreaction. Then, it happened to me. I can, therefore, no longer stay silent. There is a dangerous wave sweeping America at the moment. It's been building in strength for some time, and has finally washed ashore, seemingly taking it with it a common sense and ability to parse [...]

What will you do, when someone finds you?

What would you do, if a rabbit found you?   I've asked myself that question now for 2 years. Because in all the uproar, the fighting, the spit, the venom, the discourse, the losses and mind pounding stress of these last 2 years, I come to this day in the hope of answering that question [...]

3 Random Thoughts: Mississippi Minions, Hello Hockey, Fast Food Foolery

For me, 2018 took a needed turn to the positive Wednesday night with the opening of the NHL season. I've been a fan of the Boston Bruins since the early 2000's when I worked in Boston, hosting a nightly live cable talk show "Sports Pulse". I got to know the organization, the players, the reporters, [...]

3 Random Thoughts: Pulling the plug, Teflon Don, Riding the wave

So this was the day where I, at one level, "pulled the plug" on social media. I haven't stepped away completely, but made the conscious decision to stop a lot of the engagement in posts. First and foremost, the art of respecting opinion is gone. At least for the moment. As I noted to a [...]

Social Media Addiction: We ALL need to step back

There has not been a major sports league around the world that has used social media to it's advantage better than the NBA. Star players and those who want to become stars use the medium, especially Twitter and Instagram, to it's full advantage. Perhaps TOO full. Veteran JJ Reddick has stepped away completely from social [...]
