    Reports of missing objects from Cairo's Museum of Islamic Art A German-Egyptian excavation mission in the Nile Delta town of Tel-Basta unearthed today a life-size statue of the nineteenth dynasty king Ramses II carved in red granite. The statue, at 195cm high and 160cm wide, was found accidently during a routine excavation carried out by the joint mission. It was discovered in the so-called Great Temple area's eastern side, inside the temple of cat goddess Bastet in Sharkiya's Tel-Basta. Antiquities minister Mohamed Ibrahim explained that the newly-discovered statue depicts king Ramses II standing between the goddess Hathor and the god...
  • Let Jennings, ABC Hear from You on Blasphemous 'Jesus and Paul' Special

    Network has produced another show loaded with liberal theologians and permeated with a sense of unbelief. Peter Jennings is at it again. The "ABC World News Tonight" anchor is the driving force behind Monday night's three-hour network special "Jesus and Paul -- the Word and the Witness." Like "The Search for Jesus," a previous ABC special Jennings shepherded, the new show is filled with "expert" analysis from liberal theologians and carries the underlying worldview of unbelief in Scripture and Jesus' divinity. "Jennings repeatedly refers to 'the Jesus movement' as if it were just another political party or faction," Focus on...

    Spin Buster Hogging the Spotlight Did it seem to you that the four moderators spoke about as much as the candidates in last night's Democratic debate? Me too. Having some time on my hands, I decided to see if my hunch was accurate. Here's what I found out: Peter Jennings spoke more words than each of three candidates: Gen. Wesley Clark, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, and Rev. Al Sharpton. Jennings spoke nearly as many words as Gov. Howard Dean, who was expected to be the focus of this debate. In total, 30 percent of the words spoken came from one of...

         An opportunity to avoid war lost by the Bush administration or an opportunity taken advantage of by ABC News to push its anti-war agenda? ABC led Wednesday night with “an ABC News investigation” of what Peter Jennings characterized as “what appears to be an opportunity lost” to work with “a man who was in the process of trying to broker a deal that might have avoided war with Iraq.”      Brian Ross proceeded to recount how in the weeks before the war a Lebanese businessman forwarded an offer from Saddam Hussein’s intelligence chief to allow U.S. agents to travel...
  • DOUBLE BAGGER (Did Peter Jennings Get It On With Yoko Ono In Front Of His Wife & 500 Other People?)

    <p>YOKO Ono still knows how to get a man to take his clothes off. Peter Jennings was interviewing Ono at last week's ArtWalk event for the Coalition for the Homeless when she somehow talked the news anchor into getting inside a giant black bag with her in front of 500 people at Cooper Union's Great Hall. A few moments later, both emerged with Jennings struggling to put his shirt back on and Ono's own garb disheveled. While no one's quite sure what happened in the bag, everyone was craning their necks to get a glimpse of Jennings bare-chested - including his wife, Kayce Freed, seated in the front row with her mother.</p>

    Peter Jennings takes up U.S. citizenship After pondering the idea seriously for a decade -- and weathering a recent controversy in which his Canadian roots were an issue -- ABC News anchor Peter Jennings has become an American citizen. The Toronto-born journalist, who was raised in Ottawa and still retreats from fame every summer to a farm in the nearby Gatineau Hills, said yesterday the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the U.S. and his recent travels throughout the country have made him feel "much more connected to the Founding Fathers' dreams and ideas for the future." Mr. Jennings, who...

  • Jennings Defends Coverage of Iraq War

    ABC News anchor Peter Jennings has defended his network's coverage of the war in Iraq after it was strongly rapped by Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly (a former ABC newsman himself), who charged it was "the most skeptical" of the U.S. led effort. "O'Reilly is not the only person to have decided that," Jennings told the Sacramento Bee on Wednesday. "There are a number of militant conservatives or activist conservatives or whatever you want to call them, who decided that our coverage was liberal and Fox's was accurate. ... I don't quite understand it, because I don't see it in...

    Of course, Peter Jennings and friends ignore the real reason that the lives of so many Tinseltown airheads are getting difficult -- because they took advantage of America's very generous constitutional guarantees of free speech to appear on every cable news show they could find to denounce and disparage President George W. Bush, to make outlandish predictions about all the cruelty and carnage which would be inflicted on the Iraqi people by the American "invaders" and "occupiers," and to celebrate an imaginary "breakdown" in the American military campaign which they happily interpreted as an American defeat -- not too popular...
