So-called political pundits are an ubiquitous sight on mainstream news, particularly during the run-up to a presidential campaign — but their ties to the candidates they analyze remain obfuscated, downplayed, or altogether left out by host networks.
As The Intercept’s Lee Fang reported, “Several consultants who work at firms retained by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and her affiliated Super PACs appear regularly on the major television networks, frequently touting Clinton.”
This cozy bedfellow relationship might not be an issue if the extent of their involvement with the candidates’ campaigns were forthrightly revealed by the networks. Instead, the failure by omission not only muddies the line between impartial analysis and campaign propaganda, it also marks a failure of journalistic integrity.

February may be our shortest month, but it’s filled with notable events. This month, we celebrate Groundhog Day, Chinese New Year and Washington’s Birthday. We also commemorate President’s Day as well as every lover’s favorite, Valentine’s Day. February has also been reserved as Black History Month. After doing just a little digging, I was struck by the significant role the Republican Party played in not only emancipating slaves in the antebellum South, but also in accepting and elevating them into American society. I was also amazed by how often the Democratic Party thwarted the GOP’s efforts.
After the Civil War, the 13th Amendment, putting an end to slavery, was passed by a 100 percent Republican vote; only 23 percent of the Democrats joined in. Amendment 14, granting blacks the civil rights enjoyed by all citizens, passed with 94 percent Republican participation; this time, not a single Democrat voted for it. The 15th Amendment, which gave blacks access to the voting booth, was passed with 98 percent of Republicans voting for it, and 97 percent of Democrats voting against it.
During Reconstruction, 23 blacks were elected to Congress — all Republicans. The first black Democrat wasn’t elected until 1935 — from Illinois. The first Southern African-American Democrat wasn’t elected to Congress until 1973.
Are we beginning to see a trend here? Buckle up; I’m just getting started.

You are cordially invited to join the Republican Women of Greater Milwaukee (RWGM) on Saturday, February 27, 2016, for our February Coffee Klatch. We will meet at 11:30 a.m. at the Chancery, 7615 W State Street, Wauwatosa (parking lot east of the restaurant). This month, our featured guest is Milwaukee County Supervisor Deanna Alexander.
The Coffee Klatches are a great way to informally meet like-minded women and to interact with interesting local thought leaders, elected officials. and candidates. In addition to our usual coffee klatch time (chatting, coffee & breakfast, hearing from our special guest), we hope that you might be willing to commit to helping to distribute literature for conservative candidates after the coffee klatch. If you’re willing to help, all of the information and materials will be explained and distributed at the Chancery.
Please RSVP to email@example.com. Although an RSVP is not necessary, it is appreciated. We hope to see you on Saturday!

The dream of virtually anyone who has ever traded even one share of stock has always been to generate above market returns, also known as alpha, preferably in a long-term horizon. Why? Because those who manage to return 30%, 20% even 10% above the S&P over the long run, become, all else equal (expert networks and collocated flow-frontrunning HFT boxes aside), legendary investors in the eyes of the general public, which brings the ancillary benefits of fame and fortune (usually in the form of 2 and 20). This is the ultimate goal of everyone who works on Wall Street. Yet, ironically, what most don’t realize, is that these returns, or Returns On Investment (ROI), are absolutely meaningless when put side by side next to something few think about when considering investment returns.
