  • Fox News After Rupert by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 10/15/2018)

    I'm skeptical about gravity, but ever time I try and fight it, I fall down hard. Perhaps you haven't seen the weather reports recently. Hurricanes, Floods, Tornados. There's only so many instances of "weird weather" you can report before the science catches up with you. Pretty sure folks in Florida aren't skeptics.  

  • Why Is The Right Dominating Web Video? by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 07/30/2018)

    Without debating that - can you imagine any version of the future where social media doesn't exist? Would the government ban it? (Trump is pretty fond of Twitter), would telco's or smart phone makers block it? Would public companies simply fold up their tent? How does that future exist? 

  • Why Is The Right Dominating Web Video? by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 07/30/2018)

    Well, I know who Rush Limbaugh is, if that's what you mean. But radio is wholly different. What you listen to is your business (unless you drive a cab and subject riders to it). Web video is far more interactive and shareable, giving it the tools to be amplified in ways that talk radio never had. Also, keep in mind some of that amplification is bots and fake accounts - so it's possible to think that a post is 'popular' and 'lots of people agree' when it may be those likes and shares are all part of plan to game social media. 

  • Trevor Noah's Attack On Free Speech by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 05/14/2018)

    Hey Tony, I feel your pain. I had a very similar experience with a film of mine a few years back. A distributor, whose rights to my film had expired,  sent a takedown notice when I used a clip from my film online. I had to get them to revoke it - even though it was my film. But that was a robot run amok. This is a human (it says "Manual" in the takedown notification). So whomever 4NoahYou@gmail.com is, they're the one deciding what journalists can post. So, the investigation continues! 

  • Educating Alexa by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 02/26/2018)

    Well Paula - I agree with you that we're allowing computers to do things we used to do ourselves. I can't remember anyone's phone number, they're all stored on my phone. Spelling is now pretty much spell check, and between Google Maps and my iPhone I've lost the ability to navigate with paper maps (though I could probably figure it out in a crisis).  Do I need Alexa, certainly not? But I'm a tech writer, so it's part of my job to try things, use new technology, and explore ideas even when they seem far-fetched. I still have my pair of Google Glass, and that was an idea that worked better in principle than in practice. 

  • The Gun Debate: A Marketing Battle by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 02/18/2018)

    if it's been "proven" - then why can't research be done since 1996?-> The Dickey Amendment is a provision first inserted as a rider into the 1996 federal government omnibus spending bill which mandated that "none of the funds made available for injury prevention and control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) may be used to advocate or promote gun control."https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dickey_Amendment_(1996)

  • The Gun Debate: A Marketing Battle by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 02/18/2018)

    Kenny, simply sitting in front of your computer and criticizing the government doesn't require much effort. Are you a disaffected Trump supporter? Wray was Trump's choice. Or are you a "Deep State" critic that want's to burn the Goverment down? Let's talk specifics. Certainly, no country, or government, or group of people is perfect. But I suspect that you (and I) are the beneficiaries of services, laws, and actions as we together try to make things better for our families and our fellow countrymen. You've got some options - you can vote, you can protest, you can run for office, or of course, you can choose to move to another country. But typing only takes us so far. So, what will it be? 

  • The Gun Debate: A Marketing Battle by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 02/18/2018)

    I assume you know that doesn't work for the FBI. Christopher A. Wray is the head of the FBI since August of 2017, before that, it was Andrew McCabe, and before that James Comey.  Robert Mueller was the head of the FBI for 12 years - two administrations - September 4, 2001 – September 4, 2013, but he's now the  Special Counsel for the Russia investigation under the Justice Department. Any mistakes regarding the investigation of Nikolas Cruz would be under Christopher Wray.

  • The Gun Debate: A Marketing Battle by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 02/18/2018)

    So you're suggesting that every school, public and private, every church, synagogue, and mosque, every movie theatre should have an armed guard at the front door? Would they be paid, or volunteers? If paid, are you proposing a Federal program like TSA to do background checks, hire them, train them, and manage what would be a massive armed domestic security organization? 

  • The Rise Of Those Annoying Talking Robots by Steven Rosenbaum (Media Insider on 01/29/2018)

    Do you mean 'a letter' ie: print on a page with a stamp, or an email? More and more providers arent' accepting emails, they want you to fill out a form.
