Cable Conspiracy Theory Network

Long ago in the dark ages of last fall, I wrote an article about how the major news networks covered the situation in Syria, and it devolved into a rant pretty quickly. I thought that would be enough. But apparently, it’s not. So let’s talk about Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, shall we? Before I begin, […]

Silence not a substitute for speaking out

Forcible rape rates in Anchorage are the highest they’ve been in 30 years.

The name of the crime itself presents a problem.

It implies there is such a thing as non-forcible rape. That’s incorrect. The only other category of rape is stat­utory rape.

If you didn’t know any of that, we can’t say we blame you.

Where did the ‘amazing’ go and will it come back?

It has been five weeks since the introduction of the “Amazing Stories” campaign. The hype built up immensely through a week of festivities and promises of flashy commercials, great stories and a new chapter in UAA’s history.

It has been four weeks since the hype died down.
