Why I'm excited for the 2012 Olympics

07/19/12 09:47AM

Yesterday I produced the London 2012 segment where everyone identified their “athletes to watch.” Jon Wertheim from Sports Illustrated gave us one obvious choice, Michael Phelps - and two lesser-knowns: A gymnast from the Bronx and a Judo champ from Palestine. As we sat in the morning meeting and tossed the topic around, I could feel myself starting to catch the fever. But I didn’t realize just how excited I was, until S.E. confessed that she was a little bit embarrassed about not yet having an Olympian she was excited to watch. To which I responded: Who cares?  That’s the best part. read more

S.E. Cupp latest Daily News Article: 'You didn't build that'

07/18/12 09:29AM

If what President Obama recently said is even remotely true, then the American Dream is merely an illusion.That’s because as I — and generations of Americans — have understood it, the individualism inherent in the promise of the American Dream and the collectivism being foisted on us by the White House can’t co-exist.The idea that you can start from nothing and become something through hard work and innovation is simply a part of the American Dream narrative we’ve all come to know. read more

Steve Kornacki's latest Salon.com article: The last guy Mitt wants in the news

07/18/12 09:24AM

Maybe there’ll come a time somewhere in the future when a Republican presidential candidate jumps at the chance to associate himself with George W. Bush, but we’re not anywhere near that point yet.In 2008, John McCain kept as much distance from the then-president as possible, appearing with him for a brief, perfunctory endorsement announcement at the White House and relegating him to a pre-taped video appearance at the GOP convention in St. Paul. read more
