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.

Carolyn Hennesy of Cougar Town Joins the Program.

Always strange when a possible guest becomes available who you don't expect.  Carolyn Hennesy is just such a guest.  She is a career actress and has been around for a long time in a very tough industry.  She plays the Queen of the Cougars in Cougar Town opposite Courtney Cox

Carolyn joins me tomorrow on Air America Radio to talk about what she does and why she does it.  I have no idea where this interview will go.  But heck, that is a part of the fun.  Hope you can listen at AirAmerica.com.



I Appear on MSNBC Next Wednesday Night.

I'm looking forward to appearing on MSNBC this Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. e.t. on The Ed Schultz Show.  This should be a lot of fun as Ed is coming down to Washington DC for the show.  So we will be on set together.  This should be interesting.  That last time we were on set together, I was in a tux and he talked about wearing shorts the next time. . . .

Hope you can watch.

Fox CEO Says He Won't Run For President. U.S. Needs Fox More!

Fox CEO Roger Ailes says he will not run for the U.S. Presidency.  Apparently Ailes believes that the country needs "fair and balanced" coverage that Fox News provides more than it needs Ailes being President.

I may vomit.  In fact, I think that I may have just a little bit as I write this.

The arrogance and hubris of Ailes are truly extraordinary things.  However, these two characteristics may only be surpassed by Ailes' apparent delusion.  Considering Ailes past statements comments regarding the purpose of Fox News to fight the Democrats and Obama in particular as well as the "fair and balanced" approach provided by the likes of Beck, Hannity, and O'Reilly says it all.

While President Obama's decision to fight Fox strikes me as pointless, as Fox is not worthy of acknowledging, Ailes "self sacrifice" to not run for the Presidency is just damn funny!  Let me guess, he gets the votes of the teabaggers, Beck, Rush, Hannity, and his mom!  

Maybe Ailes should just build his own Oval Office.  He better pad the walls while you are at it. 



Looking forward to Interviewing Rep. James Clyburn Tomorrow.

Congressman James Clyburn joins me tomorrow on Air America Radio.  He is U.S. House Whip and a great public servant.  Hope you can join the program tomorrow on airamerica.com.  We will be talking about the public option and whether or not we have turned a corner.  This is going to be fun!


Jack Appears on MSNBC with Ed Schultz to Talk Afghanistan.


I'm Talking about Cheney's "Dithering" Comment on MSNBC Tonight at 6.

Dick Cheney said that President Obama is "dithering" on the question of Afghanistan.  What a joke.  A similar request was on President Bush's desk, and presumably Vice President Cheney's desk, for 8 months.  And how did that go.  And consider, does Cheney have any credibility at all when it comes to Afghanistan?

I appear tonight with Ed Schultz on MSNBC at 6 p.m. e.t. to talk about that and more.  Hope you can catch it.



I'm on MSNBC Tomorrow Night with Ed Schultz at 6 p.m..

I'm looking forward to appearing on MSNBC tomorrow night with Ed Schultz at 6 p.m. e.t.  My guess is we will talk Afghanistan, Wall Street, health care and probably everything else under the sun.  This should be a lot of fun.

Hope you can watch.


Ariane Kirtley of Amman Imman Joins the Program Tomorrow.

I have been very lucky to comes across an extraordinary person.  Her name is Ariane Kirtley and she is the executive director of Amman Imman.  She works in Niger to provide water to people who might otherwise die of thirst.  She joins me tomorrow to talk about her work.

Hope you can catch it.
