The Kenny Aronoff Book

  He’s the drummer you always see on TV, with the bald head and the sunglasses, hitting ’em hard and having the time of his life, smiling all the while. Why did I read his book? Because he reached out and was so personable. That’s the essence of making it. Making the effort and continuing…

Megyn Kelly To NBC

Back in September of last year, in a Washington Post column, we discussed possible challenges to the Fox News juggernaut. Front and center was a talent exodus. We are seeing the beginning of that with Megyn Kelly jumping to NBC. ~~~ You just can’t treat someone that badly. Forget Roger Ailes’s harassment, station star Bill O’Reilly said she…

Vice News Tonight

It’s all about trust. Shane Smith and his roving group of merrypersons are going to take over the news business, they’re gonna hijack it in plain sight, just like MTV became the music juggernaut. But this is different. Because Vice is built for the twenty first century. Where how you look is secondary to who…

Twitter For Sale

“He not busy being born is busy dying.” Bob Dylan wrote that. It’s a line from “It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding,” a track on the 1965 album “Bringing It All Back Home.” That’s right, while you were listening to Herman’s Hermits Bob Dylan was revolutionizing songwriting. By the end of the year he triumphed…
