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!

Franken "Trauma" Vs The Real Thing Trauma is a real, specific event where there is serious psychic damage. Al Franken's actions have no connection to sexual abuse and any resulting trauma. We have lost our good Senator and our minds here in America.

Can I Vote for Hillary and Still Have An Inquiring Mind? We must be free to question any candidate. The lack of questions in the media about Hillary and the defensiveness of her supporters is cause for discussion. To support Hillary requires daring to speak out and question more.

Breaking News: Love Heals the World In this disheartening time, we would do well to study love and apply love to our personal world. This is a crucial step toward spreading love as a way of being, which may impact the larger world, in its expression of division and hate. It's a worthy start.

Studying the Nuances of Media Lies and Deceptions, and The Making of a New Dirty Word; "Protester" The news this week was centered on a lie about chairs being thrown by wild and violent Bernie Sanders protesters. The media is corrupting protest and connecting the word, "protester" with violent people. Bad news for truth, language, and freedom.
