FreindlyFireZoneMedia is undergoing a complete "media makeover," where everything from A to Z is being revamped, and in some cases, reinvented. Given that we are categorizing print, radio and television archives as far back as 2006, please bear with us as we institute these significant, but time-consuming, changes.

In the meantime, please contact FFZ Media with questions, comments, and naturally, your criticism. As an independent commentator, Chris Freind is available for unrestricted television and radio guest media appearances as well as speaking engagements --- including vigorous issue debates ---in Pennsylvania and nationwide.

We look forward to joining you in the "public square."

Defending Alex Rodriguez

Defending Alex Rodriguez
No curveball here. Boston Red Sox pitcher Ryan Dempster is a coward.
He tried to be a tough guy by slamming embattled New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez with a fastball (after first throwing behind him), hitting A-Rod’s elbow and back, even though that doesn’t take a lot of guts while playing on your home turf, with your catcher there to protect you.

The Right Should Embrace Hollywood

The Right Should Embrace Hollywood --- And Elysium
Newsflash: Leftist Hollywood is at it again!  Elysium, the summer blockbuster starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, has, dare we say it, political overtones, which numerous right-wing groups have denounced as liberal propaganda.
What a surprise.
Honestly, I’m not sure what’s more annoying: these folks sounding like a broken record about the horrors of “liberal” Hollywood, or the fact that they are, flat out, completely wrong.

Yemen Problems Wouldn’t Matter If U.S. Was Energy Independent

Yemen Wouldn’t Matter If U.S. Was Energy Independent
Let’s play Connect The Dots. How are the following related?
1) The U.S. military launches an emergency air evacuation of diplomatic personnel in Yemen, while two-dozen other embassies and consulates throughout the Arab world remain closed because of major terror threats;
2) Protesters at a Chevron oil refinery chant, “Hey, Hey! Ho, Ho! Fossil fuels have got to go!,” as they continue to demand the death of drilling and the proposed KeystoneXL Pipeline;

From Riley Cooper To Anthony Weiner: Enough Already!

From Riley Cooper To Anthony Weiner: Enough Already!
Philadelphia Eagle Riley Cooper really stepped in it.
He uttered a derogatory slur that not only hurts a particular ethnic group, but “…. dampens the aspirations of (its) people.”
And I guarantee Cooper said this word more than just once. 
Sensitivity training won’t prevent him from saying it again.  And he isn’t alone, as millions from New York to Dallas to even Washington say this word in public.
“Redskins.” The R- word.

Change Redskins’ Team Name? Tomahawk That!

Life is good.
Summer is in full swing, the Trayvon/Zimmerman soap opera is finally fading away, government is probably reading only half our emails now, and the excitement of football is in the air.

Open Letter To Duchess Kate: May We Have Another?
Dear Duchess Kate,
Congratulations on your new baby --- and our new hope! 

From Trayvon To Paula Deen, Race Relations At Modern Day Low

As published in the Delaware County Daily Times...
From Paula Deen To Trayvon: Race Relations Worse Than Ever
Okay. Let’s get it out of the way. I wholeheartedly agree with the outcome in the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman fiasco. So to those who felt entitled to a “guilty” verdict, I am undoubtedly insensitive,  heartless, and uncaring.  Oh, I almost forgot the most important, albeit vastly overused labels: racist and bigoted.
Spitballs off a battleship.

Corbett, GOP Fail Pennsylvania --- Again

If you strike out two of every three times at bat, you’re a Hall of Famer. One out of four gives you a long career. But go 0-for-the-season, and your contract won’t be renewed.

On that last point, welcome to the lives of Governor Tom Corbett and the Republican-controlled legislature.

Reopen Madeleine McCann Case? Look At Her Parents First

In past columns, I have championed Don Imus keeping his job; defended Barry Bonds' achievements; and stood up for the falsely accused Duke lacrosse players long before it was “fashionable” for the media to do so. I even opined that Paris Hilton was wrongly jailed, receiving unfair treatment because she was a celebrity. But no matter how much I try, I simply cannot find anything worth defending about British couple Gerry and Kate McCann.

Government-Mandated Sewer Hookups Should Be Unconstitutional

“Obamacare” is about to be referenced, even though today’s topic is not about healthcare. So for those opposed, don’t immediately use this column as toilet paper.

The Supreme Court ruled Obamacare constitutional on the grounds that it was a tax. Had it been a mandatory purchase, it would not have passed legal muster.
