Recently, the State Department revised its definition of anti-Semitism to include "drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis" -- an apparent response to the rise of the anti-Israel BDS (Boycott, Divest and Sanctions) movement whose supporters routinely make such comparisons.

Last week, Democratic Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro, who chairs the presidential campaign of his twin brother, Julian, tweeted the names and employers of more than 40 San Antonians who maxed out their donations to President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign.

Back when I was a rookie editor in ABC's Manhattan newsroom we used to place bets--actual cash wagers--on how The New York Times would design the next day's front page.

On Aug. 2, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with counterparts from Japan and South Korea. He is working to mitigate the escalating conflict between the two nations. President Donald Trump continues imposing tariffs on China. Anti-Beijing protests grow in Hong Kong. Territorial dispute…

Earlier this week, Janesville nearly broke the internet. Two stories of changes in our local restaurant scene were shared, viewed and commented on more than any other in recent memory. The stars of the stories? Perkins, which closed abruptly Monday, and Golden Corral’s announcement it will t…

As I type, my 17-year-old son is online with his friends playing a game called "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege." It's your standard shoot-'em-up game with tough military types in black tactical gear with powerful guns. Quiet, hyper-realistic situations ratchet up the tension, my son tells me. I hear the occasional screams emanating from the basement as he or his teammates suffer onscreen deaths.

Juan Rodriguez, a doting upstate New York dad, forgot his 1-year-old twins in the back seat when he went to work as a Bronx social worker last Friday. When he got back to his car at the end of the day, he realized his mistake and started screaming. They were dead. I’d like to scream now, too.

Ten months ago, weeks before the election for governor, four former cabinet secretaries Republican Gov. Scott Walker once appointed had either endorsed Walker’s opponent, Democrat Tony Evers, or criticized the governor who had given them jobs.

It’s a daunting task to explain to us commoners what medical imaging entails. Those who have even a vague idea probably know that two Rock County companies have entered the field to supply something called molybdenum-99.

If actions speak louder than words, President Trump is no racist. If he were truly one, he’d be oppressing minorities, not uplifting and empowering them with policies he’s implemented that improve their lives.

Do you worry that the clothes you buy pose an environmental hazard? The idea never crossed my mind until serious news sources started talking about it. The central claim was that the fashion industry is the world’s second biggest source of pollution, the first being oil.

A fascinating new book traces the political and personal journeys of former Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan—the Janesville native son, 2012 Republican candidate for vice president and only U.S. House speaker from Wisconsin—over his last seven controversy-filled years in Washington.

I was at the dentist getting a tooth drilled at the start of Robert Mueller's comparable experience on Capitol Hill. I am the kind of person who cringes intensely while watching anyone fail in a public and humiliating fashion. So it was just as well that I missed the beginning of Mueller's halting, unsure performance and the Twitter reaction of typical ruthlessness.

Last winter, I found myself in a hospital intensive care unit for three days. I was hooked onto all kinds of boxes, bags and bleeping machines. Stuck in the bed, I watched a lot of bad TV. The people who came into my room became my only contact with the human world. At least half were immigr…

On Monday, The New Yorker printed a lengthy piece by reporter Jane Mayer about the sad fate of former Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn. Franken resigned from the Senate in 2017 after a bevy of women accused him of sexual harassment; their accounts ranged from unwanted kisses to unsolicited a— grabbing.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., proudly announced this year that his presidential campaign would be the first in history to have a unionized workforce. Well, he just became the first presidential candidate in history to face a labor revolt from his unionized workforce.

Wonks can be useful people. Having studied the deep innards of public policy, wonks are essential to constructing programs that can function as desired. They help write complicated laws. But whereas wonks may know all the parts that make a clock work, they are usually not good at selling the…

Here we go again. This week, President Trump appeared to renew his threat to withdraw from the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) if Democrats do not pass his new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). His threats may worry pro-trade Republicans, but they are music to the ears of anti-NAFTA Democrats, who would love nothing better than to get rid of NAFTA without giving Trump a trade victory.

In 2016, a bunch of real-life white supremacists—not just Republicans who happen to disagree with the Democrats’ preferred immigration policy—put together a conference in Washington, D.C., to attract attention. All kinds of major news networks dutifully showed up, because legacy media has so…
