Why impeachment media coverage would likely be a disaster

Last week, former special counsel Robert Mueller's congressional testimony confirmed once again that Donald Trump has engaged in serious wrongdoing, including likely obstruction of justice.

An Optic(al)Collusion

How superficial has America become?  Am I to believe, that because Robert Mueller did not bare his back like Denzel Washington in the hit film ‘Glory’ or yell out of the window reminiscent of Howard Beale in the movie ‘Network’ his testimony is now to

Media reporting on Trump's approval rating has become absurd

Talk about the bigotry of low expectations. As news outlets gather ‘round and marvel at Donald Trump's slowly improving popularity, he's basically being rewarded for having posted truly middling polling numbers for the past two years. Virtually ignored in all the coverage is the fact

Both Sides Do it… ‘Again’

Two-hundred and forty combined Congressmen and women voted to officially condemn Donald Trump, for maligning 4 American female members of Congress, of color, as interlopers, who should “go back” to the country from “which they came.”  With racism staring him squarely in the face yesterday,

Let's end the media charade that Trump's a master communicator

Has any recent president snatched political defeat from the jaws of victory quite the way Donald Trump has done over the last few days? Watching the Democratic Party become ensnared in a nasty civil war being fought among House leaders and insurgent freshman congresswoman, Trump
