Americans have been quite creative about finding novel ways to use -- and abuse -- the new communications media that have become available in recent years.
The answer is probably both. And that should scare you, but not because Trump is a terrible person; he's not, just a terrible politician; however, the surreal and frightening aspect of Donald J. Trump is that he is a very good mirror, a high definition mirror.

Last year, 42 percent of recent high school graduates enrolled in one or more remedial or "developmental" math and/or English courses at a North Carolina community college.
As the next president of the United States sits down for the first time in the Oval Office, the top item on his to-do list might involve policies designed to boost a sluggish economy.

This administration is a champion of transparency and fair and legitimate news gathering. Fulfilling records requests is vital part of meeting those goals.
Two weeks into the hearing over North Carolina's 2013 election laws, we have reached some conclusions.
It's truly disgusting to watch the drive-bys - the remnants of the so-called mainstream media - working overtime to whip up racial strife in an era they promised us, in 2008, would be post-racial.
Some of the honorables on Jones Street -- aided and abetted by the drive by media -- are still pushing that myth about how cash-starved the state is for road construction money.
I usually try not to call attention to a lot of the stupidity that oozes through the drive-by media. (There's so frickin' much of it.)

I've been writing about media bias for 20-plus years, since that day in the early '90s when the scales fell from my eyes and I saw what was happening in my chosen profession. I was managing editor of The Herald-Sun in Durham, and I began seeing things I didn't like, not only in the national media, b

Mainstream media accounts missed the mark when treating recent Wake County school board campaigns as fights pitting supporters of diversity against supporters of neighborhood schools, or longtime residents versus newcomers from out of state, or north Raleigh and western Wake County residents against
