Wiretap: In the climate change west, rethinking how we fight wildfires

Last year, 19 men died battling an historic blaze outside Yarnell, Arizona. Is it time to rethink how we battle wildfires that burn ever hotter and more destructively?

Debt ceiling standoff, Next Media Animation version

Next Media Animation has given the debt ceiling debate in Washington its signature treatment. The choppy digital short has Uncle Sam shopping and handing over his credit card to a giant Chinese panda register clerk wearing a People's Republic happy proletariat cap. Turns out Next Media writers don't know that the ironic U.S. "liberal" media only covers topics excessively that it does not take seriously. That's why the debt ceiling posturing is this year's biggest political story and that's why the Tea Party was last year's biggest story. So Next Media can't be blamed for inserting this in the video voice-over: "Most Americans agree with Republicans that the debt ceiling should not be raised." Holy biased animated media! Where's the polling on that assertion, Hong Kong?
