    New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof is facing criticism after retweeting a controversial message that referred to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and the National Rifle Association as “the 2 most pig like lobbies” in America. Longtime Israel critic M.J. Rosenberg, who was dumped by the liberal Media Matters for America for his use of borderline anti-Semitic language, authored the controversial tweet Wednesday afternoon. It called to mind recently unearthed statements by Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi that referred to Jews as “pigs.” “OBAMA told the 2 most pig like lobbies, AIPAC & NRA, to drop dead in same month....

    Comedy Central might censor every image of the Prophet Muhammad on "South Park," yet the network is developing a whole animated series around Jesus Christ. Jesus-south-park As part of the network's upfront presentation to advertisers (full slate here), the network is set to announce "JC," a half-hour show about Christ wanting to escape the shadow of his "powerful but apathetic father" and live a regular life in New York City. In the show, God is preoccupied with playing video games while Christ, "the ultimate fish out of water," tries to adjust to life in the big city. "In general,...

The apparent final word that Simpson would be a no-show at a major Republican fund-raiser with Bush and congressional leaders on Thursday night came after a day of conflicting reports from her camp and organizers of the event.

Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey revealed today, through their publicist Meredith O'Sullivan, that the breakup of their marriage was over Simpson's obsession with former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. "The rumors that the parting was over Jessica's romance with Bam Margera are not true. It was another Jackass, Saddam Hussein," said O'Sullivan at a press conference held at the Beverly Wilshire hotel with both Lachey and Simpson present. Apparently, Simpson had become fixated on Saddam Hussein as she put it "ever since he crawled...

    If Ronald Reagan were still in his prime, presidential 1980s form, he’d be saying to Hollywood: "There you go again." There are two kinds of films about presidents. There are documentaries which usually try to dwell in factual examination; and fictional movies which have a habit of wildly making things up to satisfy the demands of making either effective entertainment, or effective propaganda. Now CBS is preparing a dramatic and quite fictional miniseries for November titled "The Reagans." CBS promised reporters it would be "meticulously researched." Researched fiction, that is. The last Reagan-fictionalizing offender was Showtime, whose 2001 film on...

    You might not think so from listening to me, but I like to be liked. Not only that, I like my country to be liked around the world and it isn't. I wish President Bush would try to make this country less hated. He could do it if he set his mind to it. To begin with, we should change our attitude toward the United Nations. There has to be some power in the world superior to our own - for our own sake. Iraq isn't our problem. It's the world's problem. When the president spoke at the United Nations,...

    In a discussion related to comparing White House communications offices in Dem and GOP administrations, CBS News Chief White House correspondent Bill Plante said last week: "The media is mostly left-leaning. It is difficult to turn out graduates in majors relating to the media who are at the right of the political spectrum. So the media gets to be leaning to the liberal side. ...The Democratic party sees the media as their ally." Obviously he has not read the various temper tantrums thrown by the likes of Eric Alterman who insist the media is not liberal.

    Skull And Bones Oct. 5, 2003 There are secrets that George W. Bush guards at least as carefully as any entrusted to a president. He's forbidden to share these secrets even with the vice president -- secrets he has held ever since his days as an undergraduate at Yale. In his senior year, Mr. Bush - like his father and his grandfather - belonged to Skull and Bones, an elite secret society that includes some of the most powerful men of the 20th century. All Bonesmen, as they're called, are forbidden to reveal what goes on in their inner sanctum,...

    Rather's Anti-Recall Plea2003-10-07 03:00:10 ET Voters Needed to stop 'Republican Schwarzenegger'-- The California recall is the biggest story of the moment and that was certainly true at last night's Evening News. After devoting the first two stories of his broadcast about the election, the anchorman decided to add one more thing. Harking back to the days when he routinely used "Republican" as the first name of former independent counsel Kenneth Starr, Rather sounded an ominous note about California's political future, and what needed to be done: "You may want to note that among political professionals, there is a wide-spread...

    An elderly political activist, repeatedly portrayed by CBS News as a typical victim of the high cost of prescription drugs, now admits the network "probably" should have disclosed her lobbying interests. Viola Quirion, who favors the Medicare changes that would provide elderly Americans such as herself with a taxpayer-subsidized prescription drug plan, might not be considered a typical senior citizen to many people - given her extensive political lobbying background, which includes advocating on behalf of Alliance for Retired Persons. But that's the way she was portrayed by CBS News on at least three occasions since 1999, most recently in...

Clover, an unemployed Palm Coast resident who identifies herself in the lawsuit...
