I have 7 fans: Become a Fan. You'll get emails whenever I post articles on OpEdNews
I am a writer, media analyst, and psychotherapist. I'm interested in comedy, satire, politics, entertainment, pop culture, and business; exposing how the media powerfully spins the news we hear, and how this spin creates our feeling states and directs the way we live!
I want to resurrect intelligence(aka thinking),connection, personal engagement with life; making it fun to nail the truth inside the official news stories.
I translate what passes as news in media broadcasts. It's time to wake up!
