Lannan speaker delayed in Canada U.S. immigration officials refused Tuesday to allow Robert Fisk, longtime Middle East correspondent for the London newspaper, The Independent, to board a plane from Toronto to Denver. Fisk was on his way to Santa Fe for a sold-out appearance in the Lannan Foundation’s readings-and-conversations series Wednesday night. According to Christie Mazuera Davis, a Lannan program officer, Fisk was told that his papers were not in order. Davis made (...)

Bush criticism is widely reported
By : BBC - Tuesday September 6, 2005
8 comments
Fierce criticism of President Bush’s response to Hurricane Katrina dominates Tuesday’s papers, amid reports of ongoing suffering among storm victims. The Daily Mirror condemns the response as amazingly inadequate, pointing out that the richest country on Earth needs aid from poorer nations. And the Guardian says many evacuees at a Louisiana church centre visited by Mr Bush were unimpressed by the president. Meanwhile, the Sun likens New Orleans to a medieval wasteland. (...)

The Guardian and the de Menezes killing
By : Chris Marsden and Julie Hyland - Monday August 22, 2005
By Chris Marsden and Julie Hyland New leaks from official sources in Britain have added to the evidence already brought to light, proving that the official story of how Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes was gunned down was a pack of lies. In response, the liberal daily newspaper the Guardian has rushed to the defence of Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair, justifying the use of death squads and excusing a cover-up aimed at concealing how the police murdered an innocent man.

Judy Miller: Do We Want To Know Everything or Don’t We? by Arianna Huffington Not everyone in the Times building is on the same page when it comes to Judy Miller. The official story the paper is sticking to is that Miller is a heroic martyr, sacrificing her freedom in the name of journalistic integrity. But a very different scenario is being floated in the halls. Here it is: It’s July 6, 2003, and Joe Wilson’s now famous op-ed piece appears in the Times, raising the (...)

Former Intelligence Officers De-Spin Rightwing Assault on Valerie Wilson
By : CIA - Thursday July 21, 2005
One of the pieces of disinformation being peddled by the Save-Rove gang (see the item below) is that Valerie Wilson wasn’t really undercover. So the leak? No harm done and no crime committed (since the relevant law says a leak only counts as a crime if the exposed officer was working under cover). But how do they know that Joseph Wilson’s wife wasn’t a clandestine officer in a serious manner? Well, they don’t. There’s nothing on the public record that fully (...)

I hope this is not too Inside Baseball for you, but I am truly hacked with what the bloggers call the MSM, or “mainstream media.” The New York Times and The Washington Post have both gone way out of their way to deny that the Downing Street Memos (it’s now plural) are news. Let me tell you something. Like many of you, during the entire lead-up to the war with Iraq, I thought the whole thing was a terrible idea. I bring this up not to prove how smart we are, but to (...)

The Big Lie About Valerie Plame By: Larry Johnson From: TPMCafe Special Guests Jul 13, 2005 The misinformation being spread in the media about the Plame affair is alarming and damaging to the longterm security interests of the United States. Republicans’ talking points are trying to savage Joe Wilson and, by implication, his wife, Valerie Plame as liars. That is the truly big lie. For starters, Valerie Plame was an undercover operations (...)

White House Won’t Comment on Rove, Leak

Jul 11, 10:13 PM (ET) By PETE YOST WASHINGTON (AP) - For the better part of two years, the word coming out of the Bush White House was that presidential adviser Karl Rove had nothing to do with the leak of a female CIA officer’s identity and that whoever did would be fired. But Bush spokesman Scott McClellan wouldn’t repeat those claims Monday in the face of Rove’s own lawyer, Robert Luskin, acknowledging the political operative spoke to Matthew Cooper of Time magazine, (...)

Statement of Joseph Wilson on the sentencing of New York Times reporter Judith Miller
By : Joseph Wilson - Thursday July 7, 2005
The sentencing of Judith Miller to jail for refusing to disclose her sources is the direct result of the culture of unaccountability that infects the Bush White House from top to bottom. President Bush’s refusal to enforce his own call for full cooperation with the Special Counsel has brought us to this point. Clearly, the conspiracy to cover up the web of lies that underpinned the invasion of Iraq is more important to the White House than coming clean on a serious breach of national (...)

Lawrence O’Donnell: Three Questions for Karl Rove’s Lawyer
By : Lawrence O'Donnell - Wednesday July 6, 2005
I have a call in to Bob Luskin, Karl Rove’s lawyer, but I’m not holding my breath for a call back. He knows I know too much, since I broke the story last week that his client is one of the secret sources Matt Cooper has been protecting for the last two years. I have three questions for Luskin: Q: You’ve said Rove is not a target of the investigation. Is he a subject of the investigation? Q: Since Time delivered its e-mails to the prosecutor on Friday, have you asked the (...)

The Internet vs. Karl Rove
By : googlezon.blogspot.com - Wednesday July 6, 2005
1 comment
Things heated up over the Independence Day weekend regarding Karl Rove’s involvement with the leaking of a secret CIA agent’s identity. The problem is that the mainstream media is NOT touching the Rove angle with a proverbial 10 foot poll. Although there is clearly something going on here, the big shots of big media are treating Rove like he’s the most feared man in the country. It appears that the only way this story is going to stay alive is if the blogosphere keeps it (...)

Save the First Amendment — from Karl Rove
By : E&P - Wednesday July 6, 2005
A man who taught with Rove, and considers him a friend, writes that in the Valerie Plame case, Rove is using journalists, and the First Amendment, "to operate without constraint, or to camouflage breaking the law." That’s why neither reporters Cooper and Miller, nor their publications, should protect Rove (or anyone else) "through an undiscerning, blanket use of the First Amendment that weakens its protections by its gross misuse."

The Tillman Scandal: "Newsweek" Error Bad, Pentagon Lying OK? Greg Mitchell (May 24, 2005) - Where, in the week after the Great Newsweek Error, is the comparable outrage in the press, in the blogosphere, and at the White House over the military’s outright lying in the coverup of the death of former NFL star Pat Tillman? Where are the calls for apologies to the public and the firing of those responsible? Who is demanding that the Pentagon’s word should never be trusted unless (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
