2-26-16 Nicole Sandler Show – A Future To Believe In

It's Friday, and Nicole is worn out from watching Bernie getting berated by Chris Matthews, and the mud wrestling posing as a presidential debate last night. But she'll talk about the state of the presidential race with Julianna Forlano. And for Flashback Friday, it's a conversation with Little Steven Van Zandt

The News Has Been Canceled…and That’s the Way it Is

There is no more news. There's infotainment and speculation and opinion and lots of made-up shit all masquerading as "news," but make no mistake, the news has been canceled. Today's "news" casts on TV are anything but the objective, fact-based reports on the day's events they used to be. A Washington Post obituary of "60 Minutes" Creator Don Hewitt gets to the reason that the actual news can no longer be found on your television set: "60 Minutes" creator Don Hewitt, 86, who transformed television journalism by showing that news programs could generate money, and who helped make TV an [...]

Royal Baby-Free Zone

On the left side of your screen, the ominous charts and pictures of Issac - strengthening into a full-blown hurricane and barreling toward the Gulf Coast - most notably New Orleans as we mark the 7th anniversary of the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. The RNC powers were very short-sighted on their decision to cancel the convention activities today, while the storm is still out in the Gulf.  Tomorrow - as they begin their celebration of regression - millions [...]

Mitt, Manning & Matthews
