Donald Trump's acceptance speech was a lot less like the optimistic addresses of Ronald Reagan, John F. Kennedy, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, and a lot more like the apocalyptic vision of William Jennings Bryan.
At their best, presidential nominating conventions are about inspiration and optimism. Ronald Reagan’s “springtime of hope” in Dallas, 1984. Bill Clinton’s bridge to the 21s…

My analysis of the second day of the Republican National Convention.
Day 2 at the Republican National Convention was billed as jobs night: “Make America Work Again,” in Trump-speak. But there only seemed to be one job that convention speakers cared much …

Republican presidential candidates have been invoking Ronald Reagan's memory with great regularity during the 2016 campaign. But how similar are they actually to their icon? Here's what Reagan believed about immigration policy.
Ronald Reagan was all about tearing down walls, as in Berlin. But he also was against building them, as in Mexico. With all of the heated political rhetoric about Mexico today, it’s a good ti…

Breaking news: I write about ten cliches that should be banned from presidential campaign coverage. This could be a real game-changer.
The 2016 presidential candidates are criss-crossing New Hampshire as they enter the home stretch before the first-in-the-nation primary. Polls show the horse race is too close to call. With candi...

Lots of great journalism committed by countless international correspondents for Knight-Ridder and McClatchy. It's all over. January 1, 2016.
When I started as the University of Pennsylvania stringer for the Philadelphia Inquirer in 1974, I was greatly impressed that the Inquirer not only was a fearless advocate for Philadelphians, but i...

My take on American politics from a safe distance: ten (big) losers and ten winners in 2015.
I promise that this list of 2015 American political winners and losers -- one of dozens of such exercises being published this week -- will not mention Donald Trump. (After that one.) It's been a l...

My analysis of the third night of the Republican convention. Ted Cruz's acceptance speech.
The 2020 Republican presidential race began on a fractious and flummoxing night in Cleveland, one day after a deeply and bitterly divided party formally selected its 2016 nominee. Four of the most …

Can't read Finnish? Here's a copy of my analysis of Donald Trump's populist rebellion and its impact on the Reagan coalition, translated into English.
When I moved to Beijing in 2013 to explain global best practices in journalism to a diverse group of Global Business Journalism Program students, I had not expected that I also would frequently be …

The Global Business Journalism Program at Tsinghua University is a unique opportunity for students from around the world to study in China and to learn about the rapidly evolving global economy. I've learned so much as I've taught in GBJ.
A new beginning. There’s nothing like the first day of class each semester. Meeting smart young students who are eager to learn. My 35 years as a reporter were exciting and eventful, but my t…

Flashback to my 2013 analysis of Canada-born Ted Cruz's eligibility to serve as president.
I woke up this morning in Beijing to a tweetstorm fomented by Donald Trump's new birther conspiracy: raising questions about Ted Cruz's eligibility to be president. Here is a story I posted on Texa...

You read it here first. The New York Daily News front-page headline on Feb. 2, 2016 will be "CRUZ SCHLONGS TRUMP." That's one of my 16 bold predictions for 2016 on topics from politics to sports to media.
The pundits were soooooo wrong in 2015 that it seems silly for anyone to pull out the crystal ball again. Especially in the midst of the most unpredictable Republican presidential nominating proces...

A lesson for my students (and all journalists): How editing a photo can change its meaning. One case study: Donald Trump's most recent wedding.
Photography captures reality. Or does it? Yes, a high-quality photograph that follows my 25 rules of photo composition can be a major asset for your multimedia journalism report. But a photograph i...
