Off with the talking heads
To my dismay, it has taken broadcast news very little relative time at all to lose sight of itself. Once dry, informative broadcasts delivered clinically from a man reading the best bits of the national newspaper, now the "news" is itself a production, itself a drama and show.

Reardon: Rooting for the impossible
This past weekend, I took a trip to South Dakota. Somewhere between Sturgis and Rapid City, I turned on the radio. Country, not right now. Oldies, nope. Commercial, commercial, Talk radio, absolutely not. The scan button soon led me to a football game. I had no idea what level it...

All the speculation that's fit to tweet: Who wrote that anonymous Times op-ed?
It was a metaphoric Molotov, a middle finger, a knife in the back. Naturally, it emerged from the "Deep Throat" ether just after 4 p.m., smack in the middle of the workweek.

WOESSNER: I'll have the McDMZ
I had to check to make sure I hadn't at last fallen into a coma when I read a story the other day reporting that North Korea apparently wants McDonalds to appear in the streets of their cities. Apparently they even want the Trump hotel brand to open up there as well.
