    Defenders of HBO's "Game Change" have fought back against those who criticize the politically charged film as a two-hour attack on Sarah Palin. They claim that unless a person has watched it in its entirety, they cannot judge its content or the people involved with the project. Well, I've seen the entire movie, so don't mind me while I go ahead and judge this piece of high-dollar propaganda. "Game Change" is pretty easy to deconstruct. At its core, it's a left-wing project designed to make one of their most hated political enemies toxic. They used people with an axe to...

    Next month's battle of the Sarah Palins on cable TV could be flippin' awesome. The director of a pro-Palin documentary has come out swinging against HBO's upcoming dramatization of the 2008 presidential campaign, "Game Change." And on Tuesday, the scrappy Reelz network announced that his film on the former Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential candidate, "The Undefeated," will premiere March 11 -- strategically placed just one day after "Game Change." That's not all. Steve Bannon, writer-director of "The Undefeated," accuses HBO of a grand conspiracy to undermine Palin's political career. The pay-cable network, he said in a phone interview...

    Excerpt- For Scotland's oldest bank, it was the suddenness of its rout that stunned. That and the silence at the top. That and the invisibility of leadership. That and the short-selling frenzy that descended on HBOS shares yesterday, like vultures on a corpse. This was the blackest day in Scottish banking. An appalling day of shock, confusion and disbelief. Many this morning will still be aghast at the speed of the bank's share collapse. Anger and a reckoning will come later. Today, the fate of HBOS, the savings of its 22 million customers, the prospects for its 72,000 staff and...

    A hunt has been launched for a stock market trader who may have made £100 million in a "modern day bank robbery" after an attack on the share price of the country's biggest mortgage lender. Shares in Halifax Bank of Scotland fell by 17 per cent as traders attempted to make a fortune by betting on the bank's falling stock. Malicious rumours circulated by speculators were blamed for the run, which saw more than £3 billion wiped off the bank's value. Britain's financial watchdog launched a criminal investigation to hunt down "ruthless" rogue traders, including one speculator thought to have...
