    Contrary to claims from its editorial pages editor, a Wall Street Journal editor knew of Elizabeth O’Bagy’s connections to the Islamist Syrian Emergency Task Force and took at least three days to publish a clarification. “We were not aware of Elizabeth O’Bagy’s academic claims or credential when we published her Aug. 31 op-ed, and the op-ed made no reference to them,” editorial pages editor Paul Gigot told Politico in a statement on September 11. “We also were not aware of her affiliation with the Syrian Emergency Task Force, and we published a clarification when we learned of it,” Gigot wrote....

    A student at Yale University who was once a roving ambassador for the Taliban regime in Afghanistan has been denied admission to a degree-granting program at Yale, one of the student's financial supporters said yesterday. The student, Sayed Rahmatullah Hashemi, apparently can continue to take courses at the university as an untraditional student in a non-degree program, as he did during the past academic year, said Tatiana Maxwell, the president of the International Education Foundation, which was created to raise money to send Mr. Hashemi to Yale. It was uncertain yesterday whether Mr. Hashemi, who is 27, will do so;...

    Hardball/NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    by Mark Finkelstein June 29, 2006 As fellow NewsBuster Mithridate Ombud noted today, a San Francisco Chronicle columnist has flatly accused the Bush administration of anti-Semitism in its criticism of The New York Times for its latest leak of an anti-terror program. That this might be an emerging MSM theme is evidenced by a similar suggestion coming from Chris Matthews on this evening's Hardball. The Times rose to prominence under the ownership of, Arthur Ochs, a Jew. His descendants, notably including the Times' current publisher, Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, continue to play a dominant role in the Times' affairs. So when...

    Major newspapers are in the throes of Mobility Mania: who "makes it" in America, and why; who doesn't, and why not. The Wall Street Journal began a series last week titled "Challenges to the American Dream." The New York Times followed suit with a multiparter on "Class in America," which aims to disparage the notion that the U.S. is a land of opportunity by claiming that "new research on mobility, the movement of families up and down the economic ladder, shows there is far less of it than economists once thought and less than most people believe."...

    When Dan Rather retired a year early as anchor of CBS Evening News this March, his departure symbolized the end of an era of liberal media dominance and the onset of the new media era that is proving far friendlier to the ideas and arguments of the Right. Gone are the days when the Big Three networks, plus the New York Times and the Washington Post, decided what was newsworthy, usually with a liberal spin. Even if intrepid bloggers hadn’t debunked Rather’s specious September 60 Minutes II scoop that President Bush shirked his National Guard duties decades ago—a humiliation to...

    It’s a familiar story. An enormous company reveals its “accounting problems.” The problems are found to be far worse than anyone realized. The CEO is forced to resign. Other high-ranking executives follow. The stock price begins to drop. Billions of dollars might be lost. The politically savvy CEO even has direct connections to a presidential administration. If the word “Enron” has formed in your mind, you’d be close, but wrong. Welcome to Fannie Mae, the nation’s second-largest financial company. Only Fannie Mae, officially known as the Federal National Mortgage Association, isn’t like any standard Wall Street business. It was founded...

    The WMD we haven't found is still a threat. Tuesday, May 18, 2004 12:01 a.m. Yesterday's report that a roadside bomb containing sarin nerve agent exploded recently near a U.S. convoy in Baghdad isn't impressing most of the press corps. They're dismissing it as no big deal--though we'd guess it was a rather large event for the two U.S. explosives experts lucky enough to escape with only minor exposure.

    Two Who Made a Difference Paul Craig Roberts Wednesday, Dec. 17, 2003 America lost two tax-cutting heroes last week – former Wall Street Journal editor Robert L. Bartley and former Republican senator from Delaware, William Roth. I knew both men well, having worked with Roth and his staff in creating the Kemp-Roth bill and having served on Bartley's editorial page. Both men did much for America: Roth cut tax rates, gave us the Roth IRA and championed the taxpayer against IRS abuse; Bartley acquainted influential people with an alternative policy to Keynesian demand management, which had mired the economy in...

    THE ATTACK OF THE OPEN BORDER ELITES You are scanning the newspaper headlines one day and one in particular catches your eye: “Rep. Pelosi Says Arrests of Bank Robbers ’Terrorizing’” You read on. SAN FRANCISCO -- US House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi complained that in many instances, police and other law enforcement officers "terrorize" the bank robbers and other criminals they are attempting to arrest. "Breaking into people's homes, pointing guns at them, yelling 'Freeze!' – this is all very traumatic for people who are just trying to feed their families. It is true that technically these people are breaking...

    <p>Early on Jan. 22, German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder sat down for 20 minutes with Jacques Chirac in the French president's gilded office overlooking the gardens of the Elysée Palace.</p> <p>As aides prepared for a glittering day of banquets and meetings to celebrate 40 years of Franco-German cooperation, the two leaders huddled after breakfast to discuss something more urgent: Iraq. For months, Mr. Schroeder had been a lone voice among European leaders saying that the U.S. had no cause to attack Saddam Hussein. His stand had helped him win a narrow victory in national elections four months earlier, but it also left him diplomatically isolated. Now, he was about to get some badly needed help.</p>

    <p>Twelve years ago, I led a top secret team of interrogation specialists in a covert location "somewhere in the Middle East." Our mission was to interrogate Saddam Hussein's senior officers whom we expected to capture as a result of the fierce ground offensive of U.S. and coalition forces. We were confident of a swift victory, in spite of the bombardment of pre-war hype by defense and media pundits.</p>
