    It looks like Monkey-gate may be over. Earlier this week, Erin Burnett raised some eyebrows as she flippantly referred to President Bush as a "monkey" during Monday's broadcast of Morning Joe. The video on YouTube has over 60,000 views. Today, on Hardball, she apologized to President Bush.

I do have the upmost respect for the President, I hope he has a great weekend, and Chris, I hope...

    On August 15th, I posted the following in response to Indra Nooyi’s appointment as CEO of Pepsico: This is a copy of the letter I just sent to Pepsico. Dear BOD: I have been a consumer of Pepsi products as long as I can remember. Indeed, my grandfather bought Pepsi stock in the post-depression era which was subsequently willed to my parents. However, that came to an end today when you announced the appointment of Indra K. Nooyi as your new CEO. I have read her speech where she referred to the US as the "middle finger" of a world-wide...
  • Altered war Manipulated photos highlight untruths in Mideast conflict By LICIA CORBELLA

    Altered war Manipulated photos highlight untruths in Mideast conflict By LICIA CORBELLA They say the first casualty of war is Truth. Yesterday, the respected news agency Reuters issued an unprecedented announcement. Essentially, it admitted it unwittingly published propaganda as straight news. In a released statement, the wire agency announced the withdrawal of all 920 photographs by freelance Lebanese photographer, Adnan Hajj from its database "after an urgent review of his work showed he had altered two images from the conflict between Israel and the armed group Hezbollah," said the statement. Wishful thinking on Reuters' part. The breaches go far deeper...

    The Boston Globe today tried to distance itself from its admitted error in publishing pornographic photos fraudulently depicting the rape of Iraqi women by American GIs by blaming the city councilor who distributed the pictures at a press conference. In an editorial, the paper admitted for the first time the photos were "bogus" and "appeared" to be taken from a porn site, but in a separate article, the Globe's ombudsman claims she still has failed to discover the source of the photos and still has not confirmed or denied their veracity to readers. The photographs – uncovered by WorldNetDaily as...

    The frontman of Jethro Tull has apologised for remarks made in a newspaper interview that seemingly criticised displays of the American flag. In a posting on Jethro Tull's Web site, Ian Anderson further explained what he meant when he told the Asbury Park Press newspaper in New Jersey that "I hate to see the American flag hanging out of every bloody station wagon, out of every SUV, every little Midwestern house in some residential area." Anderson said his concern was not specifically displays of the US flag but "the flag-waving mind-set" across the world. He said he regretted the tone...

    <p>November 12, 2003 -- WASHINGTON - A Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee yesterday said it was "unfortunate" that Democratic committee staffers wrote a memo outlining a strategy to play politics with prewar intelligence. "The memo was unfortunate because it had a tone of pre-judgment," Sen. Evan Bayh (D-Ind.) told The Post. "I think the tone of the memo was unfortunate."</p>
