About Jack

Jack is really a storyteller 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.

GOP Takes NJ, VA, Upstate NY? So What! @airamerica.com

Republicans will try to argue that these three races represent a complete rejection of President Obama.  They could not be more wrong.  Here are statistics.  These are facts and they can't be denied.

FACT:

The party that won the White House lost the Virginia governor's race for the last 32 years.  Since President Obama (D) took the White House, it would only make sense that VA would go Republican.

FACT:

The party that won the White House last the New Jersey governor's race for the last two decades.  Since President Obama (D) took the White House, it only makes sense the NJ would go Republican.

FACT:

The 23rd Congressional District of New York has gone Republican for the last 100 years.  It is a Republican seat as much as almost any in the country.

So, to claim that these races represent a repudiation of President Obama is to ignore history, trends, how people vote, why people vote and, yes, facts.

Rep. @KeithEllison Joins Me Tomorrow @airamericamedia

Rep. Keith Ellison is one of my favorite Congressman.  We have also known each other for a long time, long before he was a Congressman or even a Minnesota State Legislator.  The Congressman also has one additional distinction.  He is the only Muslim to have ever served in the Congress.  I like that!

Rep. Ellison joins me to talk about possible war crimes in Gaza tomorrow on Air America Radio and airamerica.com.

An Interesting Talk w/ @RickSpringfield on @airamericamedia.

Interestingly enough, tomorrow for a least a few minutes, I'm not talking current events or politics at all.   Instead, I'm going to talk to Grammy award winning musician Rick Springfield.  Don't ask me how it happened! It just did.

Hope you can catch it tomorrow @ airamerica.com.

I Appear on @MSNBC Tonight at 6 p.m.

I appear on MSNBC with Ed Schultz tonight at 6:00 p.m. e.t.  We will be talking Dick Cheney's inability to recall 72 times and the failure of Republican attacks.  Should be a lot of fun. 

Hope you can watch.

Andrew Ross Sorkin, NYTimes Financial Reporter Joins Me.

When Wall Street blew apart, we all seemed to agree that if you are too big to fail, then you are too big.  What happened to that concept?  

Andrew Ross Sorkin is the award winning chief mergers and acquisitions reporter for the New York Times.  He joins me today to talk about that and his aptly titled book, To Big to Fail.

Hope you can catch it on Air America Radio and airamerica.com

I Appear on MSNBC Next Monday Night.

Looking forward to appearing on MSNBC with Ed Schultz next Monday night.  At this point, I have no idea what I will be talking about.  Everything is based upon what hits the headlines.  We will see what happens this weekend. 

Hope you can watch.

Lorenzo Lamas and Shayne Lamas Join Me.

I know. I know.  I wasn't expecting it either but they fell into my lap, figuratively speaking.  Lorenzo and Shanyne Lamas will join me today on Air America Radio.  Strangely enough, we talk parenting, Halloween, costumes, why Fernando Lamas, Lorenzo's father never celebrated Halloween.

All that being said, I am regularly fascinated by, and surprised by people, all people.  I am not, nor have I ever been fascinated by celebrity.  On the other hand, how people deal with celebrity is something else now!

Join me today and listen at Air America Radio and airamerica.com

Congressman Alan Grayson Joins Me Tomorrow.


Do you remember Congressman Grayson?  He is an interesting guy.  He got a lot of attention and some flack for saying on the floor of the House of Representatives that the Republicans' health care plan was for people to die quickly.  I do have to say that I have been waiting for the Republicans to introduce a bill as an alternative - and nothing.  So, doesn't the Congressman have a point?

Congressman Grayson joins me tomorrow on Air America Radio and airamerica.com
