Books: The Argument The typical mass murderer is extraordinarily ordinary," says James Alan Fox, author of books titled The Will to Kill: Making Sense of Senseless Murder, (Pearson Education, 2000) and Overkill: Mass Murder & Serial Killing Exposed, (Da Capo Press, 1994). He is also a teacher with a textbook: How to Work with the Media (Sage Press, 1993), and maintains a self-promoting Web site named Wolfman Productions. Facilely exploiting his experience in both areas, Fox had previously managed to become a talking head on high-rated broadcast shows.

At every stop in his young football career, undrafted rookie James Hurst hasn't had much time to settle in before being thrust into a starting role. In both high school and college, it turned out he was ready the moment he walked onto the field, and the Ravens are hoping the same proves true on Sunday when he starts in place of left tackle Eugene Monroe, who underwent knee surgery on Wednesday. "I'm going to use that [knowledge] for confidence and understanding that sure, this is a bigger stage and it's a completely different opportunity, but at the same time, the experience is similar, being a young guy and being thrust in there in a position where you're playing a really good team.

Washington -- IT WAS PROBABLY inevitable that the "Connie Chung question" would come up, even at last Thursday's gala inaugural salute to the new Senate leadership at the gorgeous Corcoran Gallery.The discussion among journalists started when Cable News Networks' press show moderator Bernard Kalb asked several of us whether we would have done what Connie Chung did. Would we have told Newt Gingrich's mother that she should "whisper it to me, just between you and me," as to what "Newtie" really thought of Hillary Clinton?

Posing a challenge to Republican Larry Hogan, the Maryland chapter of the National Organization for Women has asked candidates for governor to explain their positions on a series of women's health issues. NOW made a formal request Monday that Hogan, Democratic rival Anthony G. Brown and Libertarian candidate Shawn Quinn answer five questions on abortion and contraceptive services. The questions pose little difficulty for Brown because he has already taken positions largely in accord with NOW's stands.

Preakness spokescentaur Kegasus held his first press conference at Pimlico on Monday morning, and as was the case during our chat two months ago , he didn't really say anything of substance. Thankfully, I don't think any of the reporters on hand were expecting to glean a useful sound bite out of the hairy, husky guy in half of a horse costume. They were all there to see the spectacle for themselves, and we got a sneak preview of what Kegasus will look like on Preakness Day. I was hoping his costume would be a two-person operation, but I'm told his hind legs were on wheels.

Sunday, when the real media was finished with Ray Lewis, one lucky fan got a personal press conference with the Ravens star. John Williams of Florida won the press conference through a Visa contest, which was promoted -- most charmingly -- through a commercial featuring Lewis and a little girl in pig-tails. The spot, in heavy circulation earlier this fall, was called "Ray Lewis' toughest interview yet. " It featured Lewis at a press conference, seated at the podium, a scrum of tough-looking media before him asking him uncomfortable questions.

As I have said earlier, I believe the pilot for Aaron Sorkin's "The Newsroom"  is one of the decade's best productions. I love this series for the way it calls out the press for having lost its sense of purpose. But the press doesn't like be called out that way, and you can see that in some of the reviews attacking Sunday's pilot for being sanctimonious and self-righteous. I love the righteousness of this series -- self or not. Here's video from CNN's  "Reliable Sources" Sunday of a discussion I had with some of my colleagues who don't like "The Newsroom" very much at all. I respect their views.

Can someone enlighten me as to why a traffic jam in New Jersey causes more press interest than the killing of a U.S. border agent in Mexico ("In Christie's denial, shades of Tricky Dick," Jan. 13)? Could the reason be that one incident involves a Republican and the other some Democrats in high positions? F. Cordell - To respond to this letter, send an email to talkback@baltimoresun.com .

I love Sunday morning public affairs TV, and I had a chance today to be part of an animated discussion about why the public hates the press. Here's the video (below) from "Media Buzz" with me and Mediaite columnist Joe Concha as guests, and Howie Kurtz as host. I was not aware of the Gallup statistic Concha brought to the table about three out of four Americans trusting the press 40 years ago versus the sorry lack of credibility today. And when I find a way to go off on Chelsea Clinton and NBC News at about the five-minute mark, I want it duly noted that Kurtz introduced the topic -- not me. (But I thank him for it.)

Rep. Elijah E. Cummings on Tuesday called on federal health officials to reevaluate how they grade nursing homes in response to reports that some facilities are gaming the system. In a letter to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Baltimore lawmaker and top-ranking Democrat on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform requested a briefing on the issue next month. Cummings wrote he is particularly concerned the federal agency grades the homes in large part on self-reported metrics.

When developing countries need to deepen a canal for irrigation or navigation, they frequently call on Ellicott Dredges, a 129-year-old Baltimore-based maker of dredging equipment. To sell their massive, multimillion-dollar machines abroad, Ellicott Dredges often turns to the U.S. Export-Import Bank — an obscure federal agency that facilitated more than $37 billion in exports last year. The 80-year-old bank, a New Deal-era institution that provides loans and credit guarantees, is now at the center of a debate between conservative Republicans and the rest of Congress.

Believe me, I didn't go looking in my Sunday morning TV viewing for more evidence of what a journalistically bankrupt operation NBC News had become. It's fish in a barrel these days. Turn to NBC News for almost any given broadcast, and you'll find more proof than you can use of how politicized and lost it has become. But when I heard David Gregory promoting an interview that Cynthia McFadden did with senior White House advisor Valerie Jarrett I had to watch. And then, I had to try not to gag as Gregory introduced it by saying, "Our Cynthia McFadden was granted unique access and spent a day behind the scenes with Valerie Jarrett at the White House.

It's usual that an accusation against reporters comes from the political right, whether alleging they're in the tank for President Obama or that they're giving Hillary Clinton a free ride on the Benghazi terrorist attacks. But now a charge comes from the political left, passed on by a professional news kibitzer, Media Matters for America. Its website carries an article titled "By rehabilitating Iraq War boosters, is the press forgiving itself?" Eric Boehlert, a staff member, argues that in the latest military crisis in Iraq, some television reporters have gratuitously given airtime to Bush architects of the 2003 invasion to dump on Obama.

For the past three weeks, defensive coordinator Dean Pees has been calling plays from the press box instead of the sideline, and the Ravens have won three straight. He apparently isn't going to return to the field soon. "When you're upstairs, it expedites the call," said Pees. "You might think that might go the other way around, but being upstairs is actually faster. I used to have to wait to hear what the down and distance were. Sometimes, the ball was across the field and I couldn't tell if it was a hash call or a middle-of-the-field call.
