    Will the Real News Fabricator Please Stand Up? May 19, 2005 By Debbie Schlussel The Detroit News and its star reporter, David Shepardson, got caught with their pants down. They ran a fake story. But no-one noticed. No-one, except me—which lead to Detroit News Editor and Publisher Mark Silverman and his minions racing to hush the story and bury it, looking for some silent way to cover-up their very large, very exposed rears. They printed Shepardson’s phony story about a terrorist, and I exposed it, last week. Shepardson ran with it, without even a modicum of fact-checking (easily done with...

    Protect Your Access to Health Information: Contact Your Congressman Today On May 12, 2005, Congressman Ron Paul (14th District -- Texas) introduced the Consumers Access to Health Information Act (Bill 2352).

Simply put, this bill will restore consumer access to information about the benefits of nutritional supplements, a right guaranteed under the First Amendment. Why Do We Need This Legislation?

    POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) -- Viewers expecting to see the latest local meeting on their public access channel got an eyeful recently when Cablevision played a tape of nude dancers accidentally. The mistake affected customers in parts of Dutchess, Ulster, Putnam and Orange counties. Hopewell Junction resident George Morton returned home from Palm Sunday Mass and turned on his television to see a striptease contest. "I thought, this is terrible," Morton said. "I don't get HBO or anything like that." Cablevision said Thursday it was not a public access program and that a "program switching error" occurred. "When it was detected,...

    Thumbs Down: Roger Ebert Helps A Terrorist March 26, 2005 By Debbie Schlussel Normally, it would be unfair to attack Roger Ebert for his addiction to food. Normally, it would be in poor taste to hold the calorically-gifted film-critic’s insatiable taste-buds against him. Normally. But now, Roger Ebert’s irresistible yen for a sandwich is literally his excuse to defend an Islamic terrorist, Ibrahim Parlak. Parlak, who is under deportation orders, owns a restaurant in Harbert, Michigan—a restaurant Ebert frequents, with apparently great appetite. In a letter to the U.S. government opposing Parlak’s deportation, Ebert wrote, “[H]e offered to come to...

    Texas is the only state that prohibits voters who participate in a political party's primary election or a local party convention from signing ballot access petitions for political parties or independent candidates for office. Since 1972, the six other states that had a similar provision have dropped it. Now, the Libertarian Party of Texas is working with state legislators to get a bill passed to eliminate this facet of election law, which is called "primary screenout." On Feb. 28, State Representative Todd Baxter, a Republican, filed the bill (HB 1721) for consideration by the state House's Elections Committee after Libertarians...

    Activists taking shots at the planned Trans Texas Corridor have found some legislators willing to take a stab at trimming the colossal super-highway and ensuring that state authorities control the toll rates. Rep. Lois Kolkhorst, R-Brenham, who sits on the appropriations committee and is vice chairman of the House Rural Caucus, said she filed House Bill 1273 in an attempt to balance the huge scope of the corridor with grass-root concerns. "My goal is to better the concept," she said. "I will be very saddened for Texas if we don't have some assurances in place." Kolkhorst was joined by co-authors...

    We're in the midst of a technology-driven transformation of the meaning of the word "morality" that would have been impossible to foretell even a quarter century ago. The virtually instantaneous availability of — to cite only one example — pornographic material of every imaginable (and some unimaginable) variety to anyone with high-speed internet capability veritably defies our society's ability to manage it. Whether we're considering the sheer rapidity with which enhancements to the technologies that facilitate such access occur, or the economic inducements to (in this case) porn principals, particularly producers and female stars, to continue to pursue their chosen...

    Texas Department of Transportation officials sought to allay the fears of a skeptical McLennan County Commissioners Court on Tuesday regarding the Trans-Texas Corridor and the potential for a new tollway running through the county. Highway officials said they will continue to seek input from the public and local governments as the massive project's design takes shape. They also said they're committed to pushing forward on the corridor based on the need to alleviate traffic congestion on Interstate Highway 35. "The congestion, we think, on 35 is reaching critical mass," said Phillip Russell, director of the transportation department's turnpike division. "We...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A federal judge has ordered the U.S. Bureau of Land Management to ban off-road vehicles across more than a half-million acres in Southern California to protect the desert tortoise. The injunction, issued last week by U.S. District Court Judge Susan Illston, was praised by environmentalists who said it sent a message to the Bush administration and public land agencies that wildlife habitat must be protected. The ban affects portions of two large desert wildlife areas in Riverside, San Bernardino and Imperial counties. The land is marked with washes popular with off-roaders but considered by environmentalists critical...

    New York - A cable pay-per-view company has decided not to show a three-hour election eve special with filmmaker Michael Moore that included a showing of his documentary ``Fahrenheit 9/11,'' which is sharply critical of President Bush. The company, iN DEMAND, said Friday that its decision is due to ``legitimate business and legal concerns.'' A spokesman would not elaborate. Moore has just released his movie on DVD and was seeking a TV outlet for the film. Earlier this week, trade publications said Moore was close to a deal with iN DEMAND for ``The Michael Moore Pre-Election Special,'' which also would...

Helped by a cooperative judge, the Democratic lawyers scored a temporary victory. The adversary was not the Republican Party but Ralph Nader, the lawyers getting his independent presidential candidacy off the ballot for now. That is part of a larger struggle with unintended negative consequences for John Kerry's campaign. Florida is just the latest skirmish. Hundreds of Democratic lawyers, organized to enter the courts against George W. Bush on Election Day, now are...

    Democratic Delegate Has Terror Ties | By Debbie Schlussel John Kerry is trying to show he’s "tough on terrorism." But with delegates like Ismael Ahmed, it’s a tough sell. Ahmed, a Michigan delegate to this week’s Democratic National Convention, is a long-time Democratic activist and a repeat delegate. But the Democrats aren’t touting him to the media. In fact, the only place you’ll read about Ahmed’s delegate credentials is on Al-Jazeerah’s website. In this first Presidential nominating convention since 9/11, Ahmed’s presence at the convention and his views are more disturbing than ever.

At least that’s what Guerriero told Metro Weekly, a Washington-area gay and lesbian magazine. “Our access is unprecedented,” Guerriero bragged in an interview. “I’m not sure there’s been a week that I’ve been on the job where we haven’t been called to the White House.” Guerriero also claimed he’s been a regular at weekly Republican leadership meetings on Capitol Hill. Issues discussed have “ranged from tax fairness to judicial nominations,” he said.

    WASHINGTON (Talon News) -- Several federal lawmakers are lobbying hard to make the temporary moratorium on Internet access taxes permanent. A U.S. House committee will consider a proposal this week that would prevent states from placing taxes on Internet service. However, this does not affect the state's jurisdiction regarding the collection of sales taxes, which the state can collect if an Internet transaction takes place between people living in the same state. The Internet Tax Nondiscrimination Act, or HR 49, creates a permanent moratorium on the temporary one enacted in 1998 by Rep. Christopher Cox (R-CA). The ban is scheduled...

In Miami, those fears were shared by 33 percent of such women, and the number was just 9 percent in New York.

In January, WorldNetDaily had been told that it wouldn't be issued those credentials. A few months later, the Standing Committee of Correspondents -- the panel of journalists charged by Congress with guarding the press galley gates -- rebuffed the publication’s appeal.
