About Jack

Jack is really a storyteller and explorer 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.

I Appear on MSNBC with Ed Schultz tonight at 6 p.m.

I'm looking forward to appearing on the Ed Schlutz Show tonight on MSNBC at 6 p.m. e.t. With recent revelations that the brother of Hamid Karzai is not only a drug lord but also on the CIA payroll, have we lost all credibility.

We will talk about it tonight!


I Appear on MSNBC with Dylan Ratigan Tomorrow at 9 a.m

I appear on MSNBC with Dylan Ratigan tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. e.t.  We are talking Afghanistan.  With eight U.S. troops killed today and 14 killed yesterday, are we risking too much, losing too much to stay?  What are the risks?  What are the benefits?

Hope you can watch.


President Bush Really Is Barney the Scotty Dog.

President Bush spoke at a Motivational Seminar in Forth Worth, Texas yesterday.  And it was fascinating that he had an epiphany when he took his Scotty dog Barney out for a walk.  Bush took a plastic bag to pick up Barney's poop and as he was picking up the poop, he realized how much things had changed.  He really said this! 

Seems to me that Bush is a lot like Barney the Scotty Dog.  Bush has crapped all over this country and world and it is now President Obama who has to pick it up.  What makes it even stranger is that Republicans are all complaining about the crap everywhere.  And it is Obama's fault?  

Funny how that works.  


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.


Interviewing Miracle on the Hudson Survivor Tomorrow.

I'm looking forward to interviewing a passenger who was on the plane that crash landed in the Hudson, known as the Miracle on the Hudson.  It was an amazing story.  Now hear what happened from one of the survivors tomorrow on The Jack Rice Show on Air America Radio.

Hope you can listen.

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!
