Mastering the Media: The Hate Filled Clown Show of Sports talk Radio

"Barstool Sports" started out in Boston as a free newspaper founded by guys seeking to be sports commentator disruptors. Smart marketing to the lowest common denominator paid off, and today they are a brand worth a small fortune. However, being worth a lot of money thanks to being sexist, insulting  jackasses is not something [...]

Mastering the Media: News disguised as “reality TV” for suckers

It's a shame I have to do this, but here goes. Leading off yet another commentary with the admonition that this is NOT about politics. I don't care which side you stand, sit, kneel or prostrate on. If you take this as a biased or partisan opinion, then you need to check yourself at [...]

Mastering the Media: Made the fool by social media

There it was. Right in front of me. All it would take is one click. One tap. One flick of the finger and off it would go, sailing into the great electronic beyond and do exactly what it was intended to do. Smack someone right in the intellectual face with a response guaranteed to [...]

Like how I weaved that Tom Clancy reference into the first [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
