About Jack

Jack is really a storyteller, explorer, and humanitarian and everything else rolls out from there. As a writer, its what he does.  As a trial lawyer, its his most important tool.  As a former CIA officer, the only way to truly motivate people is to connect and to tell them a story that they can feel viscerally.  As a media analyst, what better way to make a point.  In the end, he tries to captivate his audience about the world as much as he himself is captivated.

[Media Appearance] Jack Rice Wins 2010 Freedom of Speech Award.

I'm flattered to have have named winner of the Freedom of Speech Award by Talkers Magazine.

Jack Rice Named Recipient of 2010 Freedom of Speech Award. Air America Media radio talk show host and new media journalist Jack Rice has been named the recipient of the 2010 TALKERS magazine Freedom of Speech Award. In making the announcement, TALKERS magazine publisher Michael Harrison states, “The editorial board has made a solid choice in Jack Rice who reflects the highest values of the First Amendment through his application of a principled combination of technique, spirit and sweat. The stunning picture on the cover of our forthcoming issue says it all: a multi-media, frozen talk show host hanging his video camera out the window of a Chinook helicopter flying over the war in Southern Afghanistan. Jack represents a rare breed of modern talker who stops at nothing to bring his radio listeners and website viewers right into the real live action spots of the world from Iraq to Afghanistan and offer them a truly independent political perspective that has worked effectively on both liberal and conservative news/talk stations. Very few talk show hosts have that ability in this era of tightly formatted political stationality and we think it is worth spotlighting.” Harrison is referring to the fact that since leaving his midday position at WCCO, Minneapolis less than two years ago, Rice has further developed an independent style of political commentary that has been used effectively by conservative stations such as KOGO in San Diego where he was not afraid to criticize George W. Bush and a liberal network such as Air America where he has now been critical of Barak Obama. As an award-winning journalist and correspondent, Jack Rice has chased stories around the world. He is a former CIA special agent and field operations officer, as well as a former prosecuting attorney and columnist, who covers policy, politics, national and international affairs on his daily 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm ET program based out of Washington, DC via Air America Media and on his highly acclaimed online media station, JackRice.org. He is also a frequent contributor to NBC Nightly News, MSNBC, CNN, Fox News Channel and other media outlets around the country. In an ever-shrinking and dangerous world, a passive look isn’t always enough. Jack represents the new generation that uses television, audio, podcasts, blogs, print and video, and takes his audience to where the news is happening and what it means. He is stopped by neither danger nor corporate cutbacks — often financing his media adventures out of his own pocket and sharing them with the rest of the industry. Jack Rice will be presented the 2010 Freedom of Speech Award at the forthcoming New Media Seminar March 19-20 in New York City.
