[OP-ED]: America’s internet delusion

 05/22/2017 - 08:51
If there are deficiencies with cybersecurity, we consider them separately. We embrace the “internet of things” without admitting that it’s also the “internet of hazards.”
English

The United States may have escaped most digital damage from the global “ransomware” virus, though cyber experts fear more attacks. One possible explanation is that the malicious software (”malware”) harms older versions of Microsoft’s Windows operating system, which most Americans have replaced. Perhaps many users in other countries haven’t. Whatever the explanation, this is not the end of internet threats.

[OP-ED]: The elite media -- self-absorbed but not self-aware

 05/12/2017 - 09:17
Now that Trump is president, you can turn to just about any channel -- absent Fox News -- and hear reporters and anchors accusing Trump or other administration officials of outright lying or pursuing policies that will hurt people -- or, in the case of the GOP health care bill, actually kill them. 
English

Riddle me this: How can the so-called elite media be so self-absorbed and still have so little self-awareness? 

Today’s journalists too often make themselves the story. If a reporter gets arrested at a protest, he’ll be on the Sunday shows doing what he is not supposed to be doing: expressing his opinion.

[OP-ED]: Why should Obama have to be saintlier than his predecessors?

The best thing about President Barack Obama’s historic presidency is that it’s over. We can now look back on it -- and him -- in far fonder terms than it was experienced live.

[OP-ED]: Hablamos de la frontera de manera equivocada

 05/04/2017 - 08:40
El muro podría empeorar el problema al “cercar” a muchos de los que se calcula que son 11 millones de inmigrantes ilegales de este lado de la frontera.
Spanish

Parece que todos tienen una enérgica opinión sobre el muro fronterizo de Donald Trump. Pero al menos deberíamos hablar del tema en la forma correcta. Es decir, con claridad, pragmatismo y sentido común.
