    It was a setup. The video purporting to show Vice President Joe Biden's daughter Ashley snorting cocaine was preplanned by a man trying to get rich selling the tape, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively. The man, who is apparently a friend of Ashley's, even bought the cocaine and the hidden camera, our investigation has uncovered.

The Star-Ledger newspaper of Newark, N.J., said Dupre was underage at the time the video was produced several years ago. Arpaio, a resident...

    NEW YORK (CNN) -- It's been a year since the parents of a severely disabled child made public their decision to submit their daughter to a hysterectomy, breast surgery and drugs to keep the girl forever small. Today, the couple tell CNN, they believe they made the right decision -- one that could have a profound impact on the care of disabled children worldwide. "The 'Ashley treatment' has been successful in every expected way," Ashley's parents told CNN exclusively in a lengthy e-mail interview. "It has potential to help many others like it helped our precious daughter." While unwavering in...

    Ashley is a 9-year-old girl who has static encephalopathy — a severe brain impairment. She cannot walk or talk. She cannot keep her head up, roll over, or sit up by herself. She is fed with a tube. Her parents call her "Pillow Angel," since she stays right where they place her, usually on a pillow. Her parents say they feared that their angel would become too big one day — too big to lift, too big to move, too big to take along on a family outing. And so they decided to keep her small. The treatment, known as...

    Michael Blair, convicted of killing 7-year-old Ashley Estell in 1993, is arguing that new DNA evidence proves he is innocent of the crime that spawned new laws against sex offenders. Phil Wischkaemper, Mr. Blair's attorney, filed a motion in Collin County that contends new DNA technology, which didn't exist at the trial in 1994, shows that tissue found under Ashley's fingernails did not come from Mr. Blair. "Given the nature of this evidence ... his actual innocence can hardly be disputed," said Mr. Wischkaemper, who practices law in Lubbock. The motion asks state District Judge Nathan White Jr. to hold...

    APRA HARBOR, Guam, May 16 - Blood was everywhere. Sailors lay sprawled across the floor, several of them unconscious, others simply dazed. Even the captain was asking, "What just happened?" All anyone knew for sure was that the nuclear-powered attack submarine had slammed head-on into something solid and very large, and that it had to get to the surface fast. In the control room, a senior enlisted man shoved the "chicken switches," blowing high-pressure air through the ballast tanks to force the vessel upward. Usually, the submarine would respond at once. But as the captain, Cmdr. Kevin G. Mooney, and...

But Ashley Smith kept her head, even when Brian Gene Nichols pushed into her home by sticking a gun in her ribs, and bound her with masking tape, an extension cord and a curtain. "I didn't want to die," she said Sunday. "I didn't want him to hurt anybody else." The 26-year-old woman, credited by police for bringing a massive search for Nichols to a nonviolent end Saturday, resurfaced a day later with a harrowing account of...
  • At the End, Pro-GOP '527s' Outspent Their Counterparts (Swift Vets, Ashley, Wolf ads most effective)

    Wash Post ^ | 11/6/04 | Jeffrey H. Birnbaum and Thomas B. Edsall
    In the final three weeks of the campaign, independent "527" groups backing President Bush bought nearly $30 million worth of television and radio ads, three times what their Democratic counterparts spent, according to a study by the Center for Public Integrity. This was a reversal of the pattern during the spring and summer months when such pro-Democratic 527s as the Media Fund, MoveOn.org and organized labor spent more than $60 million, matching the Bush campaign at a time when no Republican 527 groups were on the air. "At the end, Republican 527s reversed the trend from earlier in the year...

    This is a story of how powerful the new media has become. A phenomenon of sorts has grown from a picture of a 15-year old girl named Ashley Faulkner in a warm embrace with President Bush. It all began in early May. President George W. Bush was on the campaign trail in Ohio and one of his stops for the day was at the Golden Lamb Inn in Lebanon, Ohio. In this Cincinnati suburb awaited Ashley Faulkner and her father Lynn. They had arrived early with their friend Linda Prince to get a spot in the front of the line...

He writes, "If Bill Clinton was a bottom-feeding Rhett Butler, then Wesley Clark is Ashley Wilkes..." Folks, Ashley Wilkes was a wimp - and he was on the losing side of the Civil War!

    Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's real birthday, as many an 11-year-old girl can tell you, is June 13, 1986, but their first few months on earth don't really count--they didn't accomplish all that much. That changed in October 1986. Selected from a lineup for their nice smiles, the Olsen twins landed a shared part as newborn Michelle Tanner on ABC's Full House. In September 1987, one of them (your guess is as good as ours) was trotted out in front of the camera in the arms of actor John Stamos. Since then, in their trajectory from the Full House twins...
