My latest post at BlogHer takes on the debate that some feminists are having over Michelle Obama's performance as First Lady. I argue for more attention to the impact that she has on law and public policy related to the causes she has decided to champion.

Working on next semester's race gender and the news class caused me to revisit this 2001 talk by Natalie Byfield. While the business model for journalism has changed, her story and questions are still worth considering.

My latest post for Blogher reports on Mitt Romney's difficulty attracting support from Black voters - including today's "birther" joke.

Former BET producer Kevin E. Taylor, who has worked with such artists as Natalie Cole, Anita Baker and Sade, produced and shot this behind the scenes video. Enjoy!

" According to Stone, the billionaire Koch brothers purchased the Republican vice presidential nomination for Ryan from Romney in late July by promising to fork over an additional $100 million toward “independent expenditure” campaigning for the GOP ticket.

Any such transaction would represent a serious violation of federal election laws and perhaps other statutes, aside from the ethical and character implications for all concerned. Although Stone is not the most reputable figure, to put it mildly, he has been a Republican insider, with access to the party’s top figures, over four decades. His credentials date back to Nixon’s Committee to Reelect The President and continue through the Reagan White House, the hard-fought Bush campaigns, and the Florida fiasco in 2000, when he masterminded the “Brooks Brothers riot” that shut down the Bush-Gore recount in Miami-Dade. Peruse his site and you’ll see his greatest hits and the attention he has drawn from major publications.

I’ve known Roger personally for years and always considered him intelligent and amusing; also extremely dangerous and even erratic. Sometimes I’ve been surprised by how much he knows about the inner-most workings of his party – even when he is clearly persona non grata among the current power elite...."
