    " [T]he debate playing out in the blogosphere, cable airwaves and on talk radio pits the Vice President against an allegedly left-wing, overly cynical, prissy White House press corps in a tizzy because it wasn't the first to know and angry because it hates the President and Vice President anyway. " That's exactly right. And it comes from NBC's David Gregory. Gregory goes on to announce that this description is "nonsense," but of course Gregory has not allowed himself to be questioned outside of his network. He doesn't return calls and he won't make himself available for questions about what...

    It's been a rough and tumble week in the White House press room over the Cheney hunting story. Many viewers have written me with praise and plenty of criticism about my questioning of press secretary Scott McClellan. Let me say at the outset that I was wrong to lose my temper at Scott McClellan. I've worked well with Scott since we first met during the 2000 campaign. Monday, he suggested my aggressive questioning about the disclosure of the hunting accident was a stunt for the cameras. He said this during a morning OFF CAMERA briefing, which undercut his point. Furthermore,...

    NBC REPORTER TO WHITE HOUSE SPOKESMAN: 'DON'T BE A JERK' Tue Feb 14 2006 08:54:18 ET NBCNEWS chief White House correspondent David Gregory warned President Bush's spokesman on Monday not to be a "jerk!" The heated exchange came during a press gathering at the White House. Gregory asked White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan about the Cheney hunting accident. 'David, hold on, the cameras aren't on right now,' McClellan replied. 'You can do this later.' 'Don't accuse me of trying to pose to the cameras,' Gregory said, voice rising. 'Don't be a jerk to me personally when I'm asking you...

    The most heated public moment occurred during McClellan's off-camera "gaggle" with White House reporters yesterday morning. It featured NBC's David Gregory, one of McClellan's most persistent inquisitors over the last year, who raised his voice while asking a question about the incident. "Hold on," McClellan interrupted, pointing out that "the cameras aren't on right now. You can do this later." "Don't accuse me of trying to pose to the cameras," Gregory replied. "Don't be a jerk to me personally when I'm asking you a serious question." "You don't have to yell," McClellan said. "I will yell," said Gregory, jabbing his...

    Fact Monster ^ | David Johnson
    April Fool's Day is one of the most light hearted days of the year, yet it stems from a serious subject—the adoption of a new calendar. A Traditional New Year's Ancient cultures, including those as varied as the Romans and the Hindus, celebrated New Year's Day on April 1. It closely follows the vernal equinox (March 20th or March 21st.) In medieval times, much of Europe celebrated March 25, the Feast of Annunciation, as the beginning of the new year. In 1582, Pope Gregory XIII ordered a new calendar (the Gregorian Calendar) to replace the old Julian Calendar. The new...

    Embattled San Jose City Councilman Terry Gregory resigned this morning as part of a deal with prosecutors after he was charged with 11 misdemeanors related to his conduct in office. Shortly after the charges were announced, Gregory held a City Hall news conference announcing his resignation. Gregory said in a statement that he accepted ``total and full responsibility'' for his actions and was ``prepared to do what's right in facing the consequences of of any mistakes that I have made.'' He also said he is ``at peace'' with himself because he has ``always worked only for the betterment of our...

    The South Bay AFL-CIO Labor Council and the San Jose Silicon Valley Chamber of Commerce on Thursday joined a growing chorus of community groups and elected officials urging embattled San Jose City Councilman Terry Gregory to resign. The chamber's announcement came Silicon Valley-style, in a blog written by Jim Cunneen, the group's president and CEO, who published his views on a new political Web log site called San Jose Inside (www. sanjoseinside.com). In the blog, Cunneen also offered the chamber's help in funding a petition drive to recall Gregory if the councilman, who represents District 7, does not resign. Phaedra...

    A former aide to San Jose Councilman Terry Gregory testified Wednesday that on days his boss would get wound up intimidating big-box retailers for donations or browbeating city planners to sink projects he opposed, his staff used a code word warning that Gregory was on the warpath. ``The staff code word was `purple.' He had `purple' days,'' said Craig Mann, Gregory's former chief of staff, in front of a special ethics task force investigating allegations the District 7 councilman solicited and accepted gifts and donations, and committed dozens of violations of city and state fundraising laws.

    San Jose Councilman Terry Gregory -- accused of strong-arming local business leaders for free meals for himself and cash donations to his district -- urged a prominent East Side businessman to lie if he was questioned about the gifts, the businessman testified Monday. Tropicana Shopping Center property owner Dennis Fong told members of a special ethics task force investigating Gregory that he had given the councilman free meals and wine. But Fong stunned members when he said that Gregory had urged him to lie -- to say, if asked, that he had paid for a portion of the $300 to...

    A City Hall investigation that could bring censure hearings against besieged San Jose Councilman Terry Gregory gathered steam Friday when a task force issued subpoenas to compel witnesses to testify about allegations of Gregory soliciting gifts from businessmen. The city council's ethics task force, charged with examining accusations that Gregory sought and received gifts and pressured companies to give contributions to a special events fund, voted to issue subpoenas to: • Dennis Fong, majority owner of the Tropicana Shopping Center. In May, a Mercury News editorial reported that Fong gave Gregory a free case of wine, valued at about $1,400....

    A San Jose ethics investigation released Thursday concludes that Councilman Terry Gregory broke city laws by accepting free wine and baseball tickets and failing to properly report campaign contributions. The findings by a San Francisco law firm hired by the San Jose Elections Commission are the first official confirmation of alleged misconduct originally revealed in May in a series of Mercury News editorials and news articles. Similar investigations -- a criminal probe and an examination of a wrongful termination claim filed by Craig Mann, Gregory's former chief of staff -- are being conducted by the Santa Clara County District Attorney's...

    Almost six months after reports surfaced alleging that San Jose Councilman Terry Gregory solicited lavish meals and gifts in violation of city law, an investigation proposed last week by Mayor Ron Gonzales promises the first answers to questions about whether Gregory has done anything wrong. Who gets to hear those answers, however, is entirely unclear -- and may largely be up to Gonzales and City Attorney Rick Doyle if they determine Gregory acted in ways that expose the city to legal liability. Gonzales' investigation has sparked unfavorable comparisons to the city's early efforts in August to investigate questions about its...

    San Jose Councilman Terry Gregory's former chief of staff alleges in a wrongful termination claim filed against the city on Tuesday that his former boss strong-armed local businesses for free meals and donations to his district and threatened an employee to ``leave quietly, or else.'' Mayor Ron Gonzales immediately announced he was launching an independent investigation into the allegations by Craig Mann, who served as Gregory's chief of staff from January to December 2003, when he was dismissed. If the city rejects the claim, Mann is free to file a wrongful termination suit. Mann contends he was fired because he...

    As a San Jose City Council ethics task force debated how to treat council members accused of misconduct, a councilman said Monday he's prepared to initiate censure hearings against colleague Terry Gregory, who faces allegations of coercing local businessmen for gifts and meals. Councilman David Cortese said he hopes to jump start a council investigation on Wednesday by submitting a censure request with the council's rules committee, which sets the council's agenda. ``I have no reaction to it,'' Gregory said Monday about Cortese's plans. Gregory already faces two parallel investigations by the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office and the...

    Sandy Who? Two weeks ago, Republicans were filled with glee, as Democrats fell all over themselves, trying to diminish the fact that Bill Clinton’s former national security adviser, Samuel Berger, better known as Sandy, was caught stuffing classified documents and national secrets down his drawers, in his jacket, in his socks, and in a leather portfolio, in order to steal them from the National Archives, and to later destroy some of them. (Berger returned some documents, but only after he was caught, and had “accidentally” destroyed the most important ones.) Note that Berger reportedly burgled the Archives on as many...

Brittney Gregory, of Brick Township, was last heard from on July 11. Authorities started searching for her one week later after they charged a family acquaintance with her murder. There is no word on a possible motive. Police have not yet announced where the body was found. Previous searches of acres of woods in Lakewood, Howell and Brick yielded nothing. Ocean County prosecutors have scheduled a 3 p.m. news conference...

    These pages have spent the past few months arguing that San Jose's ethics laws are lax. We've contended that they create a culture of permissiveness at City Hall. Today, a Mercury News editorial page investigation reveals that council member Terry Gregory appears to have violated numerous state and local ethics laws, possibly including soliciting a bribe. And if he hasn't violated the letter of the law, he has made a mockery of the spirit of ethics regulations. This is the story: In the Fall of 2003, the city of San Jose threw in the towel in its efforts to take...

The effort is being coordinated by two national reform groups that advocate the ordination of married men and of women - the Chicago-based Call to Action and the Cleveland-based FutureChurch. It is another in a series of ripples that were set in motion last year when...

    VATICAN CITY (AP) _ The Vatican gave its approval Monday to the revised U.S. bishops' policy to combat sex abuse in the clergy, declaring the need to restore the image of the priesthood in a scandal that has rocked the Roman Catholic Church in the United States. Approval had been expected after differences in the original plan were worked out by a joint U.S.-Vatican commission in November. The Vatican released a letter from Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re to Bishop Wilton Gregory, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, pledging the Holy See's support to ``combat and to prevent such...
