James Franco recently came under fire for allegedly flirting with a 17-year-old Scottish girl, via Instagram. "I'm embarrassed, and I guess I'm just a model of how social media is tricky," explained Franco."It's a way people meet each other today, but what I've learned...you don't know who's on the other end." Except that in this case, Franco knew exactly who was on the other end. The girl readily admits to being only 17.

With "Scandal," so much goes on in any given episode and even though we're prepared to be shocked, I'm always surprised by how buggy my eyes get, how much more my mind is blown, and how stunned into silence I am. What do the kids say? YOLO?

The daily, international circus that Rob Ford is circumventing so disastrously right now demonstrates why it's so important to have a Crisis Communications Plan and stick to it.

A Senateless Canada Might Not Be As Effective As We Think

Glen Pearson | Posted 07.27.2013 | Canada Politics

At present, Canadians are of the belief that the political class has sunk so far beyond redemption that little of importance remains in the Senate. That's an illusion, and deserves some further thought and reflection. While there are non-trivial problems within the Canadian senate, it still serves a purpose.

As Mike Duffy's senatorial career implosion peaked this week, I was left wondering if all was really as it appeared, or if something far more complex was taking place. If Duffy -- and Wallin, and Brazeau, and others -- are part of a some plan to discredit the Senate to the point that all citizens demand its abolition.

While the wheeling and dealing and fast-talking that are the staples of the show Scandal are fascinating in and of themselves, what's most striking about the show is how race is simultaneously discussed and not discussed at all.

2012's Most Odd Yet Wonderful TV Duos

As 'The X Factor' comes to an end this week, I wonder what will become of the show in its third season. Even though Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato bicker like a petulant teenager and irksome uncle, I quite like their relationship. I never thought they would share much chemistry, but the 'X Factor' duo has been delightful to watch, which made me think of other pairs on other shows that have been a surprising treat.

Nine months ago, you could scarcely open a newspaper without reading all sorts of scary allegations about the Prime Minister's secret army of robo-men and their efforts to systematically rig the 2011 election through ambiguously deceptive phone calls. But if you're still jonsing for a Robocall fix, fear not!

There are some TV shows that I can't do anything but watch. While there are some I can have on while I pay my bills/send emails/play Fruit Ninja, there are others that require my undivided attention. You know what I mean. One of those shows is 'Scandal.'

Don't Let the Roar of F-35s Drown Out the Robocall Scandal

In light of the unprecedented incompetence exposed by the Auditor General on the F-35 procurement scandal, the swirl of parliamentary and media attention surrounding the other simmering scandal of fraudulent robocols has died down somewhat. But the issue will not go away because a fraud occurred and Canadians must find out what happened.
