JP Sottile: Setitle: Like an expert counselor, Lehrer facilitated an open and honest exchange of feelings and emotions. Okay, not much honesty. But the exchange did seem “open”…for business.
Lauren Windsow: American Autumn: an Occudoc, will screen on a double with Andrew Breitbart Presents: Occupy Unmasked with a moderated debate to follow.
Berry Craig: Given his macho talk and fondness for the flag and firearms, you’d think Hank Williams Jr. would have volunteered for what surely would have been the ultimate hunting trip for him — Vietnam.
Brent Budowsky: Now Brown resorts to the old standby: Obamahate. What will she think of next week? Perhaps a beefcake shot of Paul Ryan while he attacks Medicare and a woman’s right to choose.
Walter Brasch: What does matter is that by stonewalling, obfuscating, and refusing to give full disclosure, he appears to have something to hide.
Randy Shaw: Since the Nixon presidency, the false legend that federal money does not “solve” poverty, and even make it worse, has triumphed over the actual facts.

Peter Dreier: It was clear from the get-go last night that Bill didn’t want to talk about Pete Seeger. He wanted to talk about why I called him a “right-wing buffoon”
Dave Zirin: This is the Olympics as nothing less than a neoliberal Trojan horse. Seeing the queen sit in observance of pantomime protests and Cameron cheer the very NHS he aims to slash is actually quite perverse.

Charles Hayes: Increasingly I see young people (and some not so young) spending their days flitting this way and that, like subatomic particles being moved by unseen forces, while focused on a hand-held gadget.
Walter Brasch: Today’s news co-hosts, known as anchors, are usually a tandem of a wise middle-aged older man and his pretend trophy wife, both of whom spend more time in Make-up and Hair Dressing than they ever spent in journalism classes.
Sharon Kyle: Do citizens have a right to monitor the behavior of law enforcement? What about citizen journalists? The case of citizen Joseph “Jazz” Hayden may be one of police retaliation. What do you think?
