The next Tim Tebow is here

Tim Ajmani The Corsair My final line in the Tim Tebow article that I wrote last September referenced the fact that Tebow’s blown-up image of the “perfect” person created by the media would cause a certain backlash. I’d say now is a good time to revisit it. Tim Tebow crashed the NFL last season. Now,...

YouTube video a perfect example of risks with social media

Tim Ajmani The Corsair One of my favorite movies is “The Dark Knight” in the rebooted Batman series. The “Joker” said in that movie to Batman that “there’s no going back, you’ve changed things…forever”. How fitting are those words, especially when it comes to social media these days.
