Steve Kornacki's latest Salon.com article: Romney leads from behind on immigration

10/02/12 09:40AM

It took three-and-a-half months, but Mitt Romney has finally answered a very simple question: If you’re elected president, will you honor the executive order that Barack Obama issued granting legal status to potentially more than a million children of illegal immigrants?“The people who have received the special visa that the president has put in place, which is a two-year visa, should expect that the visa would continue to be valid,” Romney told the Denver Post in an interview that was published late Monday night. read more

The invention of Twitter back in the spring of 2006 caused a revolution, both cyber and colloquial. It created a new form of communication which would soon take over media, corporations, politics,  and social networking services. It has made a significant impact on the younger generation’s vernacular sparking debates over whether Twitter inhibits literacy potential or if it has just defined the ever-evolving cyber cloud of jargon used by Millennials. Twitter is definitely a double edged sword, developing a new side to the English language through concise, direct, expressive sentences. read more

Other than specifics, what else is there to say on foreign policy?

10/01/12 05:45PM

Call me crazy, but I think we all want to hear some specifics from Mitt Romney on foreign policy. On anything really, but let's take what we can get. And this morning as I opened my digital morning paper, I thought today would be that long-awaited day. Mitt Romney wrote in his op-ed in the Wall Street Journal that there were three sinews to American foreign policy that we need to restore: "our economic strength, our military strength, and the strength of our values." A number followed by words that filled in the blanks to the question, what are the three sinews? read more

The Stop & Frisk Experience

09/28/12 05:52PM

"Excuse me sir, can I speak to you for a moment?" He takes me by the arm in a way that only a man carrying a gun can. Not exactly pushing you up against a wall, but certainly steering you towards it - checking your chest, waist, back for a weapon. "Do you live in this neighborhood? Oh, yeah?  Why don't you show me where you live? We'll go there right now." It's not a threat, but it's meant to sound like one. I'm doing a run-through before Touré arrives on our shoot in Brooklyn. And even though I know it isn't real, I'm still uncomfortable. read more

But I'm saddened by the notion that, "Now we can just go back to watching the games."The NFL is the behemoth of sports. It makes the most money, it has the most fans, it has the biggest sponsorship. And whenever it decides that it isn't getting the everything it wants in a deal, it resorts to bully economics. read more
