    How many trillions has Obama decided to spend? Who blamed Bush for spending millions? Obama of course! So, Obama decided to spend trillions to fix the economy and search for Osama. Nice plan! He is doing a better job than Osama! I never knew there were so many incompetent people (white and black) that would vote for such a paper mache man. Obama spent the most in world history on his campaign and fooled 54% of American voters. I knew the schools in America were bad but gee weez! A strong voice, millions of dollars and a teleprompter go a...

    The president-elect has to take a stand on Bush's dark legacy. A small and largely unnoticed spat among the transition planners for the president-elect, Barack Obama, broke out last week. It was the first genuinely passionate debate among the Obamaites and it centres on a terribly difficult and terribly important decision that will be among the first that Obama has to make. How does he deal with the legacy of criminal actions of his predecessor's administration when it comes to detention, interrogation, abuse and torture of terror suspects? That has long hovered in the back of the minds of those...

    Obama Shunning Foreign Media Sun, Jul 20, 2008 at 12:09:03 pm PDT Christoph von Marschall of Germany’s Der Tagesspiegel says the Barack Obama campaign has been making sure Obama doesn’t have to answer any real questions from the international media: Snubbed by Obama. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Barack Obama is on his way to Europe, where an adoring public awaits. But I wonder if the reception would be quite so enthusiastic if Obama’s fans across the Atlantic knew a dirty little secret of his remarkable presidential campaign: Although Obama portrays himself as the best candidate to engage the rest of the world and...
  • China to relax rules on foreign media (hopes Olympics will burnish country's international image)

    BEIJING - China is relaxing decades-old restrictions on foreign reporters, announcing new regulations Friday that will give foreign media greater freedom to travel and report in the run-up to the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Even as the rules were made public, however, a Chinese court affirmed a prison sentence for a Chinese reporter. The different signals underscore China's mixed treatment of the media. The communist government hopes the Olympics will burnish the country's international image, and knows positive foreign reports will help. At the same time, it has clamped down on domestic media and Internet essayists in the fear that unfettered...

    It all started as a rather pleasant, if not exciting evening. We had heard a speech from British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw once again trying to "explain" the evil of Islamofascim in pseudo-theological, rather than political, terms. But that had been compensated for with a poem from the great mystic poet Roumi recited by Iranian journalist Nazanin Ansari. Apart from the usual contingent of "the great and the good" most of the 800 or so people present were media people and their friends, come to cheer or boo as the Foreign Press Association in London distributed its annual prizes. The...

    "Dr. Steven J. Hatfill has been defamed and persecuted by political opponents and journalists who have portrayed him as the anthrax terrorist who murdered five people last fall, despite not providing one iota of supporting evidence."
