In an Echo Chamber, Journalists Go Deaf

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 10:24:08 -0500

In addressing the question of how America was so wrong in predicting the 2016 presidential election, Gayle Lemmon notes that “the problem lies not just in the geography, but in the mindset of journalists.” A journalist by training, Lemmon speaks of the elite echo chamber in which journalists often operate and urges writers to speak with, understand, and respect the broader American public.

War Goes Viral

Tue, 11 Oct 2016 13:59:48 -0400

Social media has altered the nature of war, argue Emerson T. Brooking and P.W. Singer.

America Is Turning Into a Confederacy of Dunces

Thu, 06 Oct 2016 13:53:23 -0400

Why is Donald Trump within a whisker of the White House? Two-thirds of the country can’t even name the three branches of government. If we don’t revitalize civics education, we will be entrusting our future to people who know little to nothing of the way our government works. The way we are going, one of these days a Bernie Sanders or, heaven help us, a Donald Trump will not just be a candidate for president. He will actually become president, writes Max Boot.

Republicans Are Paying the Price for Their Addiction to Their Own Media

Thu, 06 Oct 2016 13:34:57 -0400

This election year is memorable for many reasons but among the most important is showing Republicans the cost of their infatuation with “alternative” news sources. The right’s addiction to its own news has become destructive. Whether Trump wins or loses, conservatives need to re-evaluate their infatuation with “alternative” news sources that tell them what they want to hear and join a more mainstream conversation that includes different points of view.

Civil War Within Nigerian Islam

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 12:17:26 -0400

There is a leadership struggle underway within Boko Haram, the violent, extremist movement that has claimed more than 20,000 lives since 2011 and destabilized the secular Nigerian state and its neighbors. The personal struggle between Abubakar Shekau and Abu Musab al-Barnawi reflects in part the rivalry between Boko Haram and a splinter group, “Ansaru,” and are part of a complex, intra-Muslim conflict across the Sahel, including competition between rival al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) and the Islamic State.

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 15:29:58 -0400

In the wake of the horror in Orlando, discussion has once again focused on the idea of placing a 'ban' on all Muslims entering the United States.

Israel Among the Nations

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 09:04:47 -0400

In 1996, Ehud Barak, who was then Israel’s foreign minister and would later serve as prime minister, charac­terized Israel as “a modern and prosperous villa in the middle of the jungle.” Twenty years later, as political turmoil and vio­lence engulf the Middle East, that harsh metaphor captures better than ever the way most Israelis see their country and its place in the region.
