Why I Declined An Invitation To Appear On Fox News
Huffington Post - about 1 month
I don’t know Tucker Carlson personally. I have nothing against him, beyond my low opinion of his professional work-product. In fact, I suspect he and his team work diligently and tirelessly to produce his new program on the Fox News Channel, Tucker Carlson Tonight. So I do appreciate the program’s January 24th invitation to appear live on-air with Tucker and discuss whether or not U.S. journalists should continue to interview one of President Trump’s top advisors, Kellyanne Conway. Even so, I politely declined Tucker’s invitation. While I don’t subscribe to a blanket prohibition against appearing on Fox News, I do think that journalists should avoid, en masse, certain of the channel’s programs as a means of conditioning their hosts to do better than they have thus far at serving the general public. I realize that writing about declining an invitation to appear on television seems ungracious, perhaps even gauche. But I think Tucker will understand—in fact, given the format of ...

Transactional Justification Of Selfish Ideals
Huffington Post - about 1 month
Two very different TV shows I watched over the recent long weekend connected a couple of dots for me. First, WSJ's Gerald Seib on "Charlie Rose" (PBS), talking about his recent interview with Donald Trump, repeatedly used the word "transactional" to describe the president-elect's world view, insisting that Trump is not ideological, instead believing that mutual self-interest makes deals for a better world. Second, a line in one of my surprisingly favorite shows, "Madam Secretary" (CBS): "Idealism kills mutual interest to save lives," said one character. Another responded: "For starters, mutual interests aren't always the same as equal ones, so that statement is just an ideal used to justify self interest." This line of thought can yield different conclusions (and disagreements), but for me it suggests that Trump's thinking is simply about justifying selfishness. Ideals should matter.

Jon Stewart Says Blame For Trump's Win Goes Beyond Party Lines
Huffington Post - 3 months
Jon Stewart is not necessarily surprised by the results of the presidential election.  The comedian sat down with Charlie Rose for “CBS This Morning” and spoke about how both Republicans and Democrats are to blame for President-elect Donald Trump’s rise to office.  “The ultimate irony of this election is the cynical strategy of the Republicans,” he said. “Donald Trump is a reaction not just to Democrats but to Republicans. He’s not a Republican. He’s a repudiation of Republicans, but they will reap the benefits of his victory, in all of their cynicism.” Stewart ― who went so far as singing to get support for Hillary Clinton ― says self-reflective conversations need to happen, and they need to happen openly.  “I thought Donald Trump disqualified himself at numerous points, but there is now this idea that anyone who voted for him has to be defined by the worst of his rhetoric,” he said, noting that he knows and loves people who are not afraid of immigrants, ...
