    With his political career in tatters following his admission that he molested four of his sisters as a 14-year-old, Josh Duggar and his family are moving away from Washington D.C. and back to Arkansas to be near the Duggar family compound in Tontitown. Moving trucks were spotted outside the 19 Kids and Counting star's five-bedroom home in Oxon Hill, Maryland, on Tuesday, just days after his parents and sisters sat down with Fox News' Megyn Kelly to try and defend his past 'mistakes.' Josh, 27, had lived in the home with his wife, Anna, and their three (soon to be...

    Based on history, most media watchers would probably expect NBC News to win the award for the most shameful coverage of George Zimmerman, the 29 year-old Florida man recently acquitted for the tragic shooting of teenager Trayvon Martin. But an objective look at the coverage from major print, online, and broadcast outlets, makes clear that by a fairly safe margin, CNN is most deserving of this win.

    A disgraced academic forced to resign after publicly mocking a sex assault victim has landed a £50,000 job at a prestigious London university. Nir Rosen was handed the positon at the renowned London School of Economics a month after he made 'cruel and insensitive remarks'about CBS correspondent Lara Logan, who was beaten and molested while covering the Egyptian revolution. Mr Rosen, 33, announced at the weekend he is to start work as a research fellow at the university's global governance centre.

    Even as he sits in the suburban Bay Area jail that once housed condemned killer Scott Peterson, Norman Hsu is still a wanted man. Jilted investors who sunk $63 million into Hsu's alleged Ponzi schemes are competing for whatever financial crumbs they can shake from the disgraced Democratic fundraiser. At the same time, state and federal prosecutors are wrangling over where he should be jailed. "We have the body," California Deputy Attorney General Ronald Smetana argued last week outside San Mateo Superior Court after a shackled Hsu was ordered held without bail. Hsu's fall from top-tier fundraiser has been swift:...

    GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - Disgraced Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu (shoo) has been released from a hospital in Grand Junction and is in jail in Mesa County. Sheriff's officials say Hsu was booked on an outstanding warrant charge from California. An advisement hearing is scheduled for tomorrow (1:30 p.m.). Hsu has been wanted as a fugitive for missing his sentencing on a 1991 grand theft case to which he had pleaded no contest. He failed to show up for a bail hearing last week in California. He was placed under arrest last week at St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction...

    SAN DIEGO - Disgraced former congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham lashed out at the reporter who uncovered the corruption scandal that sent him to prison, telling him in a letter that his "constant cruelty" had nearly destroyed Cunningham's life. The former Navy "Top Gun" pilot also blasted defense contractor Mitchell Wade, who helped implicate him to authorities. "Wade is the absolute devil," Cunningham wrote in the four-page, handwritten letter, excerpts of which were published Saturday on the San Diego Union-Tribune's Web site. Wade has pleaded guilty to giving Cunningham more than $1 million in bribes and is awaiting sentencing. His lawyer...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Former senator and astronaut John Glenn and his wife, Annie, were discharged Sunday from a hospital where they had been recovering from what he called a “very serious'' car accident. “I do not recommend you go test your air bags the way we did the other night,” Glenn said. Neither Glenn nor his wife was seriously injured, said Dr. Paul Beery. Beery said the former senator suffered a minor fracture in his sternum. Glenn was struck in the chest by his car’s air bag as it deployed during the accident, according to past reports. “As far...

    But let's have a show of hands: How many knew he was still there? It is a classic case of karma. For years he held a power that Presidents couldn't match. He could go home after the interview and edit remarks, leak themes, and shape expectations so thoroughly that viewers would see what they were told they would see -- and only that. He could raise questions, balance or imbalance carefully weighted views, cast doubts, editorialize while claiming merely to report, meet politicians personally, get to know them, carry grudges, foist off partisan schemes as if they were news, critique...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Veteran broadcast journalist Dan Rather has left CBS News in a bitter departure clouded by a reporting scandal over President George W. Bush's military record, ending 44 years as reporter, anchor and face of the network His career spanned such U.S. historical landmarks as President John F. Kennedy's 1963 assassination, the Watergate scandal that brought down President Richard Nixon in 1974 and the attacks by suicide hijackers who seized airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center and Pentagon on September 11, 2001. Rather said his departure on Tuesday came after "a protracted struggle" with...

    SEOUL, South Korea - Disgraced cloning scientist Hwang Woo-suk went on trial Tuesday on charges of fraud and embezzlement in a scandal over faked stem cell research that undermined global hopes of dramatic new treatments for incurable diseases. Hwang was indicted last month for allegedly accepting $2.1 million in private donations based on the outcome of the falsified research and embezzling about $831,000 in private and government research funds. Hwang also was accused of buying human eggs for research, a violation of the country's bioethics law. If convicted, the 52-year-old scientist faces at least three years in prison. Hwang is...

    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    I recently received a reply to a post that stated: "This should be beneath a "freeper". Sad." So I asked.. what is it that makes a FReeper? My reply (and I will admit was tasteless) was also questioning. It stirred controversy and was removed? Why Moderators? Can you not tell me? Did it not meet with your "FReeper" mentality? According to all posted guidelines it should be listed but no, you chose to delete it. Yes.. I'm the first one IBTZ, I'm sure you'll nick me for speaking up..

    CHICAGO (Reuters) - A dozen years after his death and more than three decades after he left the White House in disgrace, Richard Nixon is alive as never before in the grand opera world, which can't seem to get enough of the him. "Nixon in China," the John Adams' opera first staged in 1987, is in the midst of a new wave of popularity and performances, the latest being a triumphal turn on the stage of the Chicago Opera Theater where it opened May 19. Adams' seductive yet complex and minimalist melodies, as well as librettist Alice Goodman's poetry turn...

    SAN DIEGO – Former U.S. Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham arrived in San Diego's federal courthouse Friday morning for sentencing on bribery charges, flanked by his lawyers and surrounded by a crowd of news crews. He looked gaunt and shaky as he entered a courtroom filled to capacity, with the news media taking seats in the jury box as well as some of those in the audience. Inside, he was greeted and hugged by well-wishers, including Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Alpine. When Father Joe Carroll arrived, he and Cunningham hugged and clasped hands in greeting. Carroll, who runs a local shelter for...

    SEOUL (Reuters) - The president of Seoul National University stripped a title from a disgraced researcher because of science fraud and called for six others to be punished who were part of the same cloning scandal, the school said on Friday. Once heralded and now scorned, scientist Hwang Woo-suk lost his title as "chair-professor." Hwang had already resigned his post at the university on December 23 when an investigation panel said in an interim report that he bore major responsibility for deliberately fabricated data in two landmark papers on embryonic stem cells. Seoul National University President Chung Un-chan said the...

    During his days as a Navy pilot, Randy "Duke" Cunningham headed a squadron whose members poked fun at each other by writing humorous entries in a journal dubbed the "hit log." Officers who served with Randy "Duke" Cunningham said the qualities that made him a good pilot – cockiness, a sense of entitlement – led to his undoing in Washington. Cunningham would make entries in the book from time to time, singling out his subordinates for good-natured ribbing. But his writing was so riddled with misspellings and tortured punctuation that a junior officer took to diagramming the sentences, describing Cunningham's...

    Fellow Americans, there comes a time every mans life when we must give up ourselves before we are worthy to recieve. There comes a time in this war on terror when in order to protect liberty, we have to give it up in the mean time for safty. That's right folks. Today, Americans have forsaken the creator for the creation and have decided that they would value our "civil liberties" than protecting western civilization and rich white people from the tender mercies of radical Islamic terrorists. Selfish liberals insist and whine that Bush has no right to spy on Americans...
