"Newsweek Dissembled, Muslims Dismembered!" By Ann Coulter FrontPageMagazine.com | May 19, 2005 When ace reporter Michael Isikoff had the scoop of the decade, a thoroughly sourced story about the president of the United States having an affair with an intern and then pressuring her to lie about it under oath, Newsweek decided not to run the story. Matt Drudge scooped Newsweek, followed by the Washington Post. When Isikoff had a detailed account of Kathleen Willey’s nasty sexual (...)

Newsweek apology? How about White House retraction of WMD?
By : jkmkay - Wednesday May 18, 2005
9 comments
What a joke, the White House carrying on about Newsweek. I’d say Newsweek should retract any article only when the White House admits there were no weapons of mass destruction, apologizes to all Iraqis and Americans, brings American troops home and allows the UN to do what it was originally formed to do, namely protect the vulnerable and to establish and keep the peace. Maybe I’m confusing facts with the issues, and the use of reason has no place in this country anymore, but I (...)

Interview with Naomi Klein on Democracy now about her conversation with Giuliana Sgrena... "She told me a lot about the incident that I had not fully understood from the reports in the press. One of the most - and at first, the other thing I want to be really clear about is that Giuliana is not saying that she’s certain in any way that the attack on the car was intentional. She is simply saying that she has many, many unanswered questions, and there are many parts of her direct (...)

Hazardous assignment
By : H.D.S. Greenway - Monday March 14, 2005
By H.D.S. Greenway ON ONE thing the Italian government and the White House agree. The killing of intelligence officer Nicola Calipari and the wounding of journalist Giuliana Sgrena by American soliders was a ’’horrific accident." But beyond that there is little agreement as to what happened. The Americans say the car the Italians were traveling in was going 60 miles an hour. The Italians say it was going 25. The Americans say they gave hand signals, flashed lights, and fired (...)

The Passion of Giuliana Sgrena
By : Danny Schechter - Wednesday March 9, 2005
by Danny Schechter NEW YORK - Italian Journalist Giuliana Sgrena became an icon in Iraq, a role model of a caring journalist of conscience kidnapped by parties unknown. Her plight mobilized the people of Italy with virtually the whole county demanding her release. In response, Italy dispatched an intelligence agent to find her and negotiate her release. Miraculously, he did, but as fate would have it, was killed by US soldier suspicious of his car, which raced through, they say, a (...)

by Giuliana Sgrena I’m still in the dark. Friday was the most dramatic day of my life. I had been in captivity for many days. I had just spoken with my captors. It had been days they were telling me I would be released. I was living in waiting for this moment. They were speaking about things that only later I would have understood the importance of. They were speaking about problems "related to transfers." I learned to understand what was going on by the behavior of my two guards, (...)

In Solidarity with Giuliana Sgrena
By : HAWCA - Monday February 7, 2005
by Omar and other friends in HAWCA The illegal and unlawful arrest and kidnapping of all people, no matter Muslim or Christian, Hindu or Jew, is an act of inhumanity, barbaric demonstration of obscurantism and using illogical means for achieving objectives which maybe justified as right or wrong. While we condemn all kind of kidnappings in Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries of the world, hereby we deeply and whole heartedly are concerned about the fate of the Italian journalist, (...)

Some U.S. Students Say Press Freedoms Go Too Far
By : WPO - Tuesday February 1, 2005
from USA today: One in three U.S. high school students say the press ought to be more restricted, and even more say the government should approve newspaper stories before readers see them, according to a survey being released today.

By Rick Kelly In response to Tuesday’s attack on a US base in Mosul, the New York Times published an extraordinary front-page article yesterday, entitled “Fighting is the only option, Americans say.” The piece quoted a number of people who expressed their full support for the ongoing occupation, and presented their views as being representative of the US population as a whole. While the article was presented as an objective characterization of the nation’s mood (...)

Time names Adolph Hitler, Man of the Year 1938

Greatest single news event of 1938 took place on September 29, when four statesmen met at the Fuhrerhaus, in Munich, to redraw the map of Europe. The three visiting statesmen at that historic conference were Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain of Great Britain, Premier Edouard Daladier of France, and Dictator Benito Mussolini of Italy. But by all odds the dominating figure at Munich was the German host, Adolf Hitler. Fuhrer of the German people, Commander-in-Chief of the German Army, Navy (...)

U.S. President George W. Bush’s bold, uncompromising leadership and his clear-cut election victory made him Time magazine’s Person of the Year for 2004, its managing editor said Sunday. Time chose Bush "for sticking to his guns (literally and figuratively), for reshaping the rules of politics to fit his 10-gallon-hat leadership style and for persuading a majority of voters this time around that he deserved to be in the White House for another four years," Jim Kelly wrote in the (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
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 (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

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 (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. 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 (...)
