    Liberal Fox News Contributor and Daily Beast columnist Kirstin Powers on the Obama-Hillary Clinton "60 Minutes” interview: “It really was something you’d expect from the state-run media. It was that kind of level of propaganda… This was a joke. You look at it and just not challenging basic things…”

    What on earth was Sarah Palin thinking when she posed in a pair of teeny-tiny gym shorts for a photograph that ended up on the cover of Newsweek -- a cover she has called "sexist"? Perhaps she was thinking that her image would only appear in the magazine she was posing for, Runner's World, and nowhere else, at least not for months and months. If so, she had good reason -- since, as DailyFinance has learned, the photographer who shot the picture violated his contract by reselling them to Newsweek. That photographer, Brian Adams, could not immediately be reached, and...

    One of President Obama’s goals in his speech Wednesday night – unacknowledged, perhaps, but central – must have been to make the intransigient Republican opposition to health-care reform look rude, petty, disingenuous, counterproductive and fundamentally dishonest. My verdict: Mission accomplished, thanks to lots of Republican help. Obama pointed out how Republicans such as Sens. Orrin Hatch, John McCain and Charles Grassley supported earlier reform measures that expanded health coverage and care. He dealt with all the canards that opponents have thrown in the path of reform. No, it’s not a government takeover of health care. No, it’s not going to...
  • STATE-RUN MEDIA - What do you think of ABC teaming up with White House for its news?

    STATE-RUN MEDIAWhat do you think of ABC teaming up with White House for its news? - It's a socially responsible move by the network - It's a good way to get people interested in how government works - Another example of Obama being open and transparent - Obama has become "too big to fail," so the media need to support him in every way possible - It's just a promotional gimmick by ABC to try to improve ratings - Like Rush says, what do you expect from the state-run media? It's just blatant now - Like Farah says, the media...
  • The One that wasn't for Mother Corp (hard times - snicker! - at Canada's PBS)

    The One that wasn't for Mother Corp The Edmonton Journal Sun 23 Jul 2006 Page: A14 Section: Opinion Byline: Lorne Gunter It was a bad week for numbers over at the CBC. First there was the public broadcaster's experiment with hipness. In an attempt to capture a younger viewership, Mother Corp decided, quite bizarrely, to bump The National newscast Tuesday nights throughout the summer in favour of an American Idol knockoff known as The One. The alleged "reality" talent show would appear in The National's 10 p.m. slot, while Peter Mansbridge et al. would be forced to slink over...

    With a cast of characters including a former prime minister, some of the richest executives in France and Germany, Paris' biggest-ever corporate crime trial continued this week with 37 defendants in the dock. France's largest-ever corporate corruption trial resumed in Paris this week with more drama than your average Mexican soap opera. The case offered further tales of illicit backroom dealing, a €5 million divorce settlement tab picked up by French taxpayers and allegations that a former French prime minister accepted bribes in connection with a string of acquisitions made by the state-owned French oil conglomerate Elf Aquitane in the...

    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Six girls in state custody were unsupervised at night and partied with adult men at the hotel where they lived while awaiting foster care, according to a police report. The girls, ages 11 to 15, were removed from the Marriott Residence Inn on June 3, when hotel workers called police. The girls had lived at the hotel since May 13. The Department of Children & Families is investigating, district administrator David May told The Palm Beach Post. May said the girls were supervised by Maxim Healthcare Services, a Columbia, Md.-based company hired to find...
