Trump Team Disgracefulness Power Rankings -- Week 2
Huffington Post - 8 months
When Republic Report published “Trump Team Disgracefulness Power Rankings - Week 1” last week, we weren’t sure we’d ever have time to do it again, let alone five days later.  But there’s been so much disgracefulness this week that the rankings basically wrote themselves. As we explained last week, Republic Report, which focuses on how money corrupts democracy, has met its dream mate with the kleptocratic administration of President Donald J. Trump. Trump and his lieutenants personify how money and greed, mixed with serious bigotry, disrespect for constitutional freedoms, and know-nothing ignorance, can really, really corrupt democracy. Hence, Trump Team Disgracefulness Power Rankings, counting down the week’s ten most disgraceful figures in the Trump administration. This week Betsy DeVos moves up by abandoning veterans and other college students, Newt blows his stack, and two high-priced outside lawyers push their way into the countdown. Permanent spoiler alert: We simply c...

Trevor Noah Has A Question For Fox News Host Who Questioned Obama's Tears
Huffington Post - about 2 years
"Daily Show" host Trevor Noah didn't hold back his disgust after conservative pundits accused President Barack Obama of faking his tears during his address on gun violence Tuesday. Like any other rational person, Noah empathized with the president's show of raw emotion as he remembered the 20 children killed in 2012 by a gunman at Sandy Hook Elementary School.  "See that thing you’re feeling right now? That pain in your chest," Noah said after airing the clip of Obama on his show Wednesday night. "That comes from watching someone weep on national television, because he knows that society can do better than to file the shooting of children under ‘shit happens.’ That feeling is how you know that you are human.” Some conservatives, however, were outraged by the president's behavior. Numerous commentators on Fox News, like Melissa Francis and Meghan McCain, said they were infuriated that Obama didn't cry publicly after the recent San Bernardino and Paris attacks.  ...

Three Steps to Online Branding Success for Authors
Huffington Post - over 2 years
When I talk to my friends who are agents and publishers, they all say they give authors advice and documents that walk them through the online marketing opportunities and timelines. The bigger publishers even have author portals with lots of important and useful information. I wonder then, why do so many authors I speak with say "why didn't someone tell me that." I speak and work to promote authors online and almost all of them feel that their needs are not supported by their publishers. As someone who has worked in-house, I know how hard everyone works and how passionate they are about their books. So I wonder why there is this disconnect? The fact that so many authors feel that they were not given the right advice and direction, makes me think that there is an opportunity for publishers to create an "author branding department." A department where authors (all authors not just the big ones) learn to develop their brands along with writing their book. I know it's a lot of wo...

DC Restaurant Serving Free Burgers During Shutdown
Fox Business News - over 4 years
One restaurant owner is offering free burgers to all government workers who can't go to work today due to the partial shutdown. Z-Burger founder Peter Tabibian says the restaurant is serving free burgers to all furloughed government officials in the Washington D.C. area from 11:00-1:00 pm and 5:00-7:00 pm. Non-working federal officials need to show their ID cards, and they get a burger on the house. The company anticipates an average of 5,000 burgers – which translates to $2,500 dollars in potential profits -- total to be given out from all four Z-Burger locations in the city every day while the government is shutdown. "We want to get the Republicans and Democrats … to come over to and iron this thing out," Tabibian told FBN's Melissa Francis. Tabibian is a real-life symbol of the American Dream, as he came to America as a child after escaping from Iran in the back of a trunk. He began his love affair with burgers at a young age, after obtaining a job at Burger King at age fo...

Melissa Francis: The Truth About Super Women
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
I know most of the people out there right now are giving advice about being all you can be at work, and somehow still keeping the home fires burning. I've spent the last decade and a half as a business journalist, and in that role I've met and interviewed many of the Super Women we've heard about amid the current work life balance discussion that has caught fire online and in the media. So I feel an obligation to tell you the truth. First: Many Super Women Don't Sleep. It's nearly impossible to run a huge business and be a wife and mother and get a good night's sleep. I'm not saying they don't try. Just that, there are only 24 hours in a day. A couple of the Super Women have told me in private conversations that they lay awake at night searching the ceiling stressing about what they haven't accomplished during the day, or yet in their lives. I know, you may reject that as impossible, given their Super achievements, but that's what makes them type-A powerhouses. Too mu...

Joe Moreno: Guns Do Kill People
Huffington Post - about 5 years
Yesterday, I talked gun control on Fox Business with the uber-talented Melissa Francis. During this discussion she expressed the nonsense and banal phrase; guns don't kill people, people kill people. Watch the latest video at video.foxbusiness.com This junk phrase is a linguistic non sequitur. It placates the simple-minded and is a large part of the reason why people in government have been paralyzed by fear of the great, but fallacious, NRA boogeyman. The Second Amendment exists and it's obviously not going anywhere, despite what the survivalist loonies will have you believe. Currently "the right to bear arms" doesn't include bombs, tanks, grenades or (taken to the logical extreme) nuclear weapons. Does anyone really believe that their AR-15 would prevent a tyrannical government, which spent $680 billion on defense last year, from "getting" you? I'm no proponent of Obama's drone policy, but the mere existence of these weapons is evidence of just how ridiculous these ...
