    The National Security Agency's monitoring of Americans includes customer records from the three major phone networks as well as emails and Web searches, and the agency also has cataloged credit-card transactions, said people familiar with the agency's activities. The disclosure this week of an order by a secret U.S. court for Verizon Communications Inc.'s phone records set off the latest public discussion of the program. But people familiar with the NSA's operations said the initiative also encompasses phone-call data from AT&T Inc. and Sprint Nextel Corp., records from Internet-service providers and purchase information from credit-card providers. The agency is using...

    From Mark's website - Also, Mark gets an excellent call from a neurosurgeon who gives an inside look on what exactly Obamacare will do. For example, instead of patients, some people over a certain age will be considered, "units," as they try to dehumanize patients and the care they receive.

    Glenn Beck - he has one of the highest-rated shows on the top cable news network. He's had a number of bestselling books and he's called attention to some unsavory characters working in the Obama administration. Yet - he's somehow considered to be a risky business decision for the powers in charge at Fox News. On CNN's Nov. 29 "Reliable Sources," host Howard Kurtz pointed out Glenn Beck accusing Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., of "hooking" for the so-called $300 million "Louisiana Purchase" provision of the health care bill. "He's talking there about Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu, who did get a...

    Couric & Co. CBS ^ | October 27, 2009 6:05 PM | Sharyl Attkisson
    In August 2009, CBS News made a simple request of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for public documents, e-mails and other materials CDC used to communicate to states the decision to stop testing individual cases of Novel H1N1, or “swine flu.” When the public affairs folks at CDC refused to produce the documents and quit responding to my queries altogether, I filed a formal Freedom of Information (FOI) request for the materials. Members of the news media are entitled to expedited access, which I requested, since this was for a pending news report and on an issue of...

    President Bush' former Harvard Business School prof says his ex-student supported the Vietnam War but wanted somebody else to fight it. Yoshi Tsurumi said yesterday that Bush told him his father's connections got him into the Texas Air National Guard. "But what really disturbed me is that he said he was for the Vietnam War," said Tsurumi, who has also taught at Baruch College and the City University of New York. "I said, 'George, that's hypocrisy. You won't fight a war that you support but you expect other people to fight it for you.' He just smirked." Tsurumi, who crossed...

    'Moment of truth' today Bush gives U.N. one day for Iraq's disarmament 03/17/2003 By G. ROBERT HILLMAN / The Dallas Morning News LAJES, Azores Islands - President Bush and his staunchest allies on Sunday gave the U.N. Security Council one last day to embrace the "immediate and unconditional disarmament of Saddam Hussein." If the 15-member Security Council, which has been deadlocked for weeks, does not act decisively against Iraq on Monday, Mr. Bush suggested that war was imminent. "Tomorrow is a moment of truth for the world," he said during a news conference with the leaders of Britain, Spain...
