    A rather strange tale comes across the transom to us today from the rough and tumble world of competitive poetry publishing. (Okay… I confess. I really just wanted to type that sentence.) But putting all snark aside, the Washington Post’s Sarah Kaplan did come up with a rather enlightening news item about the annual publication of the anthology, Best American Poetry. No! Wait! Come back! I promise, the story gets better.There is one beleaguered individual, Sherman Alexie, who is responsible for reading thousands of submissions each year and determining which bits of verse should make it into the august...

    A newly hired New York Times columnist is an anti-Israel conspiracy theorist who is so opposed to “normalization” with the Jewish state that he once fought to prevent a think tank from translating his novel into Hebrew. Influential Egyptian author Alaa al-Aswany sparked controversy in literary circles in 2010 when he tried to block the Israel Palestine Center for Research and Information from publishing a Hebrew translation of his novel The Yacoubian Building. IPCRI co-chairman Gershon Baskin told the Washington Free Beacon that his organization enlisted Amos Schocken, the editor of left-leaning Israeli daily Haaretz, to publish the Hebrew translation....

    Salon has laid off eight six editorial staffers—or 20% of its editorial staff—so that, in the words of CEO Richard Gingras, it can become "more of a true Web publication." Welcome to the internet, Salon! In a statement to Gawker, Gingras confirmed that three editors, one writer, one photo editor, and one producer were laid off last week. The only name we've heard thus far is culture editor Joy Press; let us know if you have any other intelligence. UPDATE: Here's the complete list: Jeanne Carstensen, managing editor Kevin Berger, features editor Katharine Mieszkowski, senior writer Joy Press, culture editor...

    ISKANDARIYAH, Iraq (AP) -- Maj. Gen. Rick Lynch is a West Point graduate with a master's degree in mechanical engineering from MIT. In Iraq, he's also a fish farmer. Violence in the region Lynch commands, including the so-called ""Triangle of Death"" south of Baghdad, has dropped nearly 80 percent from a year ago. That, Lynch says, allows him and his troops to spend less effort chasing insurgents and more on helping the citizens rebuild their economy. ""I used to go to patrol bases and plan military operations. Now I walk around and talk to people,"" Lynch said on a visit...

    The Weekly World News is dead, and in the words of its ripsnorting right-wing columnist Ed Anger, the tabloid's dwindling legion of fans should be ''pig-biting mad'' about it. Based for most of its 28 years in Palm Beach County, the Weekly World News delivered the guiltiest of pleasures with wheelbarrows of wit, screaming headlines and a black-and-white design sensibility straight out of 1952. Depending on your perspective, the WWN gloriously chronicled or shamelessly fabricated an alternate reality populated by amorous space aliens, babies born with angel wings and gardeners who marry their vegetables.

    Massive Anti-American Disinformation Campaign Underway It started a few weeks ago : reports of “CIA Torture Planes” that were being used to transport hapless innocents to “secret torture camps” in Eastern Europe. The source was Belliciao – an Italian Communist publication run by a “writers’ collective” that seems to use the name ‘CLAYTON HALLMARK” for stories by a number of people (assuming Google is not totally confused ) : Greg Szymanski,Wayne Beson,Charlene Fassa,etc. The story even has a chart of “known CIA aircraft” , and the names of “CIA shell companies “ that operate them. The New York Times and...
  • CIA Data Leaked to Red Website

    CIA Airplane IDs and Designations on Red Website There has been a lot of talk about CIA leaks to the Media of late. This chart (available at the link shown in first comment), which appears on an Italian Communist website –has been distributed around the world ,and is readily available to al-Qaeda,or any other enemy of the United States. This data was originally leaked to the Washington Post-whose reporter-Dana Milbank – declined to publish the specific data you see here. Presumably,this made the leaker unhappy , and the information found its way to one Clayton Hallmark, who publishes regularly on...

    Two leading Western business magazines, BusinessWeek and The Economist, are set to launch Russian-language versions due to the West's increasing interest in the local market, Izvestia, a respected daily, said Thursday. Alexei Volin, the president of the Rodionov publishing house that would publish the Russian version of BusinessWeek, said the house's another publication, Profil, had long been cooperating with BusinessWeek. The Independent Media publishing house, which also publishes the Moscow Times English-language daily, would soon release the Russian-language version of The Economist, Izvestia said. A number of leading Western publications already have their Russian-language editions, from Newsweek to Cosmopolitan and...

    SAN DIEGO - A federal judge heard arguments Wednesday on The Associated Press' request to dismiss a lawsuit that claims the wire service violated copyright and privacy laws by publishing photos of Navy SEALs and Iraqi prisoners that an AP reporter discovered on the Internet. Lawyers for the AP asked U.S. District Court Judge Jeffrey Miller to throw out the case under a California law that allows quick dismissal of lawsuits that can be shown to stifle free speech. Six Navy SEALs and the wives of two of the special forces members sued the AP in December in state court....
