Leonard Pitts: Fox 'News' sinks to a new low with author interview

Posted 8/3/2013 in National Columns

No it was not the most excruciating thing ever seen on television. We've seen worse. We've seen Roseanne singing the national anthem, Magic Johnson hosting a talk show and Paris Hilton, existing. But if it's not number one on that list of god-awful TV, author Reza Aslan's recent interview with Lauren Green of Fox "News" is surely in the top 10.

 

 

Kathleen Parker: The newbie mavericks

Posted 8/3/2013 in National Columns

As congressional leaders depart the nation's capital for a much-deserved five-week break, it is with a sense of relief and pride in accomplishment: a grand-bargain budget that ends sequestration and makes rational spending cuts, a sane immigration reform package and progress on a cost-cutting health-care plan.

Susan Estrich: The role of the sole military adviser to the President

Posted 7/20/2013 in National Columns

It's not often that a testy exchange at a hearing, followed by a senator's statement that he would put a hold on the nomination until he got an adequate answer to his question, opens a window to a fundamental issue in our democracy. And a timely one.

 

 

Rheta Grimsley Johnson: Fire and rain

Posted 7/20/2013 in National Columns

Leonard Pitts: We need to wake the hell up

Kathleen Parker: Why was he allowed to walk around armed?

Posted 7/17/2013 in National Columns
