Do you radio listeners actually like commercials? Here’s what readers said

My column on KROQ’s new(er) morning show and the station’s two-minute pledge brought in some good responses from you: “I agree with you 100% on this. I would be far more likely to stay with a station that announced how long the ads would last (esp. 1-2 minutes!) with a promise of another set of music to come. And speaking of insufferable ‘tune outs,’ KRTH’s ill-conceived and heinous promo featuring listeners repeating ‘KRTH101’ as fast as possible for a minute (?) to win a prize is like fingerna...

JFK and the President as the “Decider”

For the Symposium on Martin J. Sherwin, Gambling with Armageddon: Nuclear Roulette from Hiroshima to the Cuban Missile Crisis (Knopf, 2020).             I begin with an anecdote of sorts:  In October 1962, I was a first-year graduate student at Harvard, in the department of government.  My aspiration at the time was to become a “defense intellectual”; I had written my senior thesis at Duke on aspects of nuclear deterrence theory, and one of my heroes, from afar, was Morton Halperin, who at t...

'A similar challenge': how Joe Biden echoes Kennedys on US foreign policy

The president does not just share Irish roots with John, Robert and Ted Kennedy – he also wants to lead America in the worldIt was a popular Washington sport: find the past president who best explained Donald Trump. There was a touch of Andrew Jackson’s populism, a dash of Richard Nixon’s skulduggery, a sprinkling of Ronald Reagan’s myth-making. But now all that is over, who are the closest matches to Joe Biden?

This is particularly the case in foreign policy, where the president is able to move quickly and, often, without the need for congressional action. A re-evaluation of policy should be welcome when a new administration starts. A change driven by the desire to diverge from the previous administration, for that reason alone, however, might not be so wise. When President Donald Trump took over from P...

Oliver Stone JFK Documentary Turned Down by Netflix Headed to Cannes 2021

Oliver Stone is returning to the tangled, messy world of John F. Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories with a new JFK documentary headed to Cannes. Stone’s 1991 masterpiece JFK covered the assassination with all the urgency of a crackling thriller, and while the filmmaker’s approach is not what I’d call “factual,” it does make for an incredible movie. This new doc was first announced back in 2019, where it went by the title JFK: Destiny Betrayed. Stone revealed his new JFK documentary wa...
