12 years – can you believe it? On February 4, 2002, it will be 12 years since we launched ON THE RECORD! Click to see the question I have for you! (and of course, answer it)
Fox News - about 3 years
I am curious ….how long have YOU been watching ON THE RECORD? (Incidentally, the funny thing for me is that I never intended to be on television.  Before I got into television – 20+ years ago, I was content practicing law and teaching as an Adjunct Professor at Georgetown Law Center.  I just stumbled into TV with the William Kennedy Smith trial (although most remember me from the later trial, OJ Simpson.)  Hence I consider myself the ‘accidental anchor.’ The post 12 years – can you believe it?

Do iPhones Cause 'iSolation'?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Another idiot who's texting while driving! (It's actually the author of this post, Bruce Weinstein, and the car isn't in traffic. It isn't even moving.) Two new iPhones are about to flood the market. I -- and maybe you too? -- join millions of people around the world who can't wait to own one. We'll be able to do things faster and better than before, so what's the downside? I call it iSolation. It's not a function solely of Apple products, of course, but whatever the source, there are three major costs associated with our obsession with technology. Cost #1: Opportunities Our social fabric is in danger of being ripped to shreds as we swap electronic connection for personal relationships. The nature of community depends upon us being connected to one another. Being civil means, or at least used to mean, valuing relationships beyond our immediate circle of family and friends. When we're deeply immersed in our gadgets, we miss the chance to make new friendships, renew old ones ...

Michael Smerconish: Zimmerman: Gender Not Race
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The O.J. Simpson criminal prosecution was doomed from the moment the trial was moved from Santa Monica to downtown Los Angeles, ensuring that the jury looked nothing like the two victims, legal pundits agree. Might the outcome of the George Zimmerman trial have been similarly predetermined -- not because of race, but because of gender? That there is racial division in how people regard the Zimmerman verdict is evident, both anecdotally and in the data. Thousands of mostly African Americans have marched in protest since the not-guilty verdict, and now polling results evidence the division. Last week, a Washington Post/ABC survey reported that 86 percent of African Americans disapproved of the not-guilty verdict, vs. 31 percent of whites. But dig deeper into those numbers and a pattern emerges -- one not so surprising to the jury consultant who helped the Zimmerman defense "deselect" the jury. While among all adults 41 percent approve and 41 percent disapprove, men are ...

In praise of tabloid TV
Reuters Canada - over 3 years
Allow me to defend cable TV’s extended live coverage of the George Zimmerman murder trial, even though I’ve not watched a second of it, nor have I tuned in to any of the nightly rehashes aired on CNN, HLN, MSNBC and Fox News Channel. Championing the Zimmerman telemania puts me at variance with the critics of tabloid TV, who want the cable news networks to focus their cameras instead on the Cairo uprising, President Barack Obama’s climate speech, the slaughter in Syria, voters’ rights, the NSA outrages, Wall Street, congressional hearings, and other examples of “meaningful” and “important” news. Directly disparaging CNN’s Zimmerman surplus at the expense of the Egyptian uprising is New York University journalism professor Jay Rosen, who asserts that the network’s new president, Jeff Zucker, “wants everyone in his company to know what the priorities are: Mini-series in the center, world events off to the side.” Rosen is right about what Zucker wants. But the call for more broadcast hou ...

Martin Newman: Jack Reacher Is Kicking Ass at the Box Office but What Are the Best Ever Movie Punch-Ups?
Huffington Post - about 4 years
In new action blockbuster Jack Reacher, Tom Cruise is surrounded by thugs when he gives a calm, chilling appraisal of their situation: "Remember, you wanted this". What comes next is a predictable staple of just about every Hollywood action flick made today. And in a market crowded with such franchises, making these fight scenes bigger and badder than anything before is a continual challenge for writers and choreographers. But what really makes a memorable movie punch-up? The James Bond films set a standard for the tough-guy butt-kicker and since the advent of Hong Kong martial arts movies the model has been refined and reiterated over the decades. New film franchises like the Die Hard, Mission Impossible, Matrix, Batman and Bourne series have kept the box office ticking over. But they have also become dangerously generic. Whether it's Daniel Craig or Matt Damon you always know the brutal outcome. They are heroes who don't break a sweat enroute to battering ...

Dr. Lawrence M. Schall: College Presidents Speak With One Voice
Huffington Post - about 4 years
On the same day our nation learned in horror that 20 first graders and six educators were gunned down at Sandy Hook Elementary School, young people around the country were learning if they had been accepted to their favored colleges and universities. For many years now, our nation's leaders have engaged in fevered debates on higher education, yet lawmakers shy away from taking action on one issue that prevents thousands of young people from living lives of promise, let alone realizing their college dreams. That issue is gun safety. Among the world's 23 wealthiest countries, 80 percent of all gun deaths occur in the United States and 87 percent of all children killed with guns are killed here (Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery). In 2010, 2,694 young people were killed by gunfire. 1,773 were victims of homicide; 67 were elementary school-age children. If those children and teens were alive today, they would fill 108 classrooms of 25 each. We are college and univer ...

Myra Chanin: Lenny Leibowitz: The Weird and Wonderful Musical Virtuoso Who Became a Theatrical Visionary
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Lenny Leibowitz, Marvell Rep's Marvellous [sic] Artistic Director/Co-Founder is a born-and-bred-around Philadelphian whose bold, City of Brotherly Love beginnings are attracting attention in the location stolen by sharp traders from the original natives with bright colored beads. So what else is new? A nice suburban lad, Lenny spent his formative years practicing piano concertos. He made his musical debut at the age 16 -- performing the Mendelsohn G Minor Concerto with the Philadelphia Orchestra under the baton of Conductor William Smith. Lenny gave up his dreams of concert hall glory shortly thereafter when he realized a lifetime of practice, practice, practice was too isolating an existence for him. When he was 19, and attending Columbia University, he discovered a communal match for his artistic ambitions in theater -- with a lowercase "t." Columbia's then very informal drama department gave Lenny and his ragtag group of self-taught actors enough leeway to create and ...

Mitt Romney’s War with the Boston Globe
The New Republic - over 4 years
IT WASN’T ALWAYS like this between Mitt Romney and the press. His aides didn’t always tell reporters to “kiss my ass”; they didn’t always hole him up in a Mittness Protection Program, the not-so-affectionate name campaign journalists have given to the candidate’s extreme lack of availability. And they sure didn’t drive sympathetic journalists—in this case, Fox News’s Greta van Susteren—to suggest that the experience of covering him is like being a member of a “petting zoo.” It’s hard to imagine now, but there was a time, nearly 20 years ago, when Romney’s electoral strategy largely hinged on wooing the press, on proving to them that he was a less adversarial kind of Republican candidate. That he wasn’t able to has shaped his political life ever since. In the winter of 1993, Romney invited Frank Phillips, head of the statehouse bureau of The Boston Globe, and Scot Lehigh, his frequent collaborator, to lunch. To Phillips, who’d been covering local races for decades and knew every local ...

One thing I really liked about the conventions: seeing old friends
Fox News - over 4 years
I have been in cable news for about 20 years.  My arrival in cable news was unintended – perhaps better described as accidental.    I was happily practicing law and teaching at Georgetown Law as an Adjunct Professor when I casually agreed to do a few hours of legal analysis for CNN on the William Kennedy Smith trial and well…..here I am all these years later.  As a consequence of having so many years in the news business, and of working at two networks and covering every major story in the last 20 years, I have met and worked with many people at my networks and at other network. Major media events give me the chance to run into old friends  - many were quite young and not powerful when we first met but who now have grown to significant influence within their networks (some have stayed at their original networks and moved up the ladder there and some have moved around as they climbed the ladder.)  I enjoy their success. I know there is the impression that we in the networks are not ...

When Is It Acceptable To Profit From Death?

Joseph Caramadre has spent a lifetime scouring the fine print. He's hardwired to seek the angle, an overlooked clause in a contract that allows him to transform a company's carelessness into a personal windfall. He calls these insights his "creations," and he numbers them. There have been about 19 in his lifetime, he says. For example, there was number four, which involved an office superstore coupon he parlayed into enough nearly free office furniture to fill a three-car garage. Number three consisted of a sure-fire but short-lived system for winning money at the local dog track. But the one that landed him on theevening news as a suspect in a criminal conspiracy was number 18, which promised investors a unique arrangement: You can keep your winnings and have someone else cover your losses.
