Featured Work
  • Cruel America
  • Roars of applause for executions at the GOP debate, official approval of torture, barbaric prison conditions, obstruction of aid to storm victims and children in need — is our nation descending into barbarism? 

  • Hot Teachers
  • The revolution may have left Tahrir Square, but Egypt's education system is boiling with anger.

  • The New American Jujitsu
  • In the wake of 9/11, we have summoned up imaginary demons to spare ourselves from facing the all-too-real burdens of our time.

  • Conflict in Israel
  • A problematic speaking deal between the Jersusalem bureau chief Ethan Bronner of The New York Times and PR firm Lone Star Communications. (After this article was published, Bronner cut his ties to the PR company.) 

  • Brooklyn by the Book
  • In "Literary Brooklyn," the argument that emerges, recedes, rallies and falters throughout is that Brooklyn, because more human in scale, is more American than Manhattan and has particular stories to tell about the rest of the land.

  • The GOP War on Voting
  • In a campaign supported by the Koch brothers, Republicans are working to prevent millions of Democrats from voting next year.

  • The CIA’s Censorship Machine
  • The American reaction to 9/11 included selflessness, dedication, and bravery, but it also included some harebrained and counterproductive steps. As we approach the tenth anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks, Horton examines those reactions.

  • Sharpton's Affirmative-Action Win
  • Earlier this year, the reverend lent crucial black support to the controversial merger between Comcast and NBC. Is his new MSNBC show payback? Wayne Barrett investigates.

  • Rudy's Cozy Murdoch Ties
  • The unholy alliance of press and politics happens in the United States, too. Giuliani did enormous favors for Fox TV in New York City, and his wife’s earning from FOX tripled while he was mayor.

  • Five Months of Waiting
  • What happens when a revolution stalls out? Many feel that the basic demands of the revolution have gone unfulfilled, with little indication that a path for real change lies ahead.

  • Murdoch Empire’s Heart of Darkness
  • No one imagined how low NewsCorps' CEO Rupert Murdoch's UK tabloid News of the World had sunk; our collective jaw has dropped numerous times as new revelations have been made public.

  • Beltway Awakens to GOP Extremism
  • The media have forgotten the previous decade of GOP rule, with trillions of dollars in wasted spending, deep government dysfunction and an economic crisis. Yet media elites continue to treat the Republican Party as credible voices on public policy.

  • Unredacting “The Interrogator”
  • An explosive new book by retired intelligence officer Glenn Carle contradicts the claims Suskind published about Pacha Wazir (which were no doubt faithful reports of what Suskind was told by sources in the intelligence community). 

  • Welfare for Dictators
  • How, even with a sinking economy, Pentagon billions are still flowing to strongmen in the Middle East.

  • Diane Ravitch, the Anti-Rhee
  • Diane Ravitch, the 72-year-old preeminent historian of American education, tweets often and to serious result. In the past year, they've become a major front in her way against "school reform" or "school privatization."

  • The Not-So-Great Migration
  • It started as a trickle and has now swelled into a river of prominent African American journalists streaming to black-oriented media.
