If you want to cut to the chase in this clip from the 1991 movie, “The Paper,” with Michael Keaton, Randy Quaid, Robert Duvall, Glenn Close, Marisa Tomei and Jason Alexander — it’s a good cast — skip to about 1:30 on this video. Journalism can be messy.
I can’t help it — I just love the “Sarah Palin Rap” video from “Saturday Night Live” back in the fall of 2004.
What a day for the National Youth Correspondents of the 2012 Washington Journalism and Media Conference, who visited the National Press Club!

But on July 27, all eyes (most eyes?) will be on London and the Summer Olympic Games. To celebrate, here is an Olympic athlete montage video featuring Muse’s London […]
I have respected Ann Curry‘s humane journalism for more than a decade. I came to personally respect her several years ago when she played host to the conclusion of a cross-country LIVEstrong fundraising cycling trip that finished on the Oval in Washington D.C. There was no doubting her sincerity and dedication. Ratings are down for […]
Into Batman? “The Dark Knight Rises,” the third and final installment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, hits the theaters July 20.
