Appreciate Michael of TVNewsCheck for asking my “humble opinions” about the present and future of syndicated TV. Can broadcast TV be saved? Absolutely. What will
I read a recent article in one of the business trade magazines about a large media company’s annual call with Wall Street regarding their potential
Rules are for some but not for all at Jetblue?
Bad Nielsen Hispanic Samples perpetuated tired media stereotypes of U.S. Latinos as maids, gardeners, gangbangers, or illegal immigrants. Young U.S.-born Latinos were not represented in the research and, thus, the television programming landscape.
They play internet doctors, lawyers, spiritual leaders, climatologists, entrepreneurs, political pundits, and experts of all stripes because they can do so without real-world knowledge or consequences. When proven wrong, which is easy with a stroke of a fact check, they double down or, at best, crawl back down their rabbit hole only to re-emerge later with more outrageous, bogus claims.
His article proclaims more air conditioning and cooling centers as a solution to climate change? Yes, the answer for CO2 emissions is more CO2 emissions. This is farcical.

In an era of brazen political lies, Mr. Mugica has emerged as an unlikely figure with the power to put the genie back in the bottle. Last week, his lawyer sent scathing letters to the Fox News Channel, Newsmax and OAN demanding that they immediately, forcefully clear his company’s name — and that they retain documents for a planned defamation lawsuit.
No, we can’t (or shouldn’t) shop till we drop at big department stores, nor can we (or should we) hit big Holiday parties. At least not this year. We can instead celebrate the silver lining of this moment in our lives. We can rise to the moment to revel in Christmas’s true meaning by giving to others and practicing goodwill towards all our fellow humans.
I am not a male super-model, I will never be a male super-model and therefore, I will not waste my time pursuing a career as a male super-model… I’ll try something I am more suited for and stop staring in the mirror trying to see something there, that is clearly not.
