News throwing hissy fits
1 Washington Post
"..has sued Al Franken and his publishing house to stop them from using the expression "fair and balanced" in the title of his upcoming book." STORY
Romanesko media news
Fox News Channel's lawsuit against Al Franken is peppered with boasts and insults. The network, which doesn't want Franken using "fair and balanced" in his book title, calls the political satirist "a parasite" who "appears to be shrill and unstable." Lisa de Moraes notes the suit refers to FNC's Bill O'Reilly as "a national celebrity" and Fox News as a "world famous" cable channel. STORY
Fox News fauxs up
The T-shirts parody both Fox News' logo and its laughable "We Report, You Decide" motto as "We Distort, You Comply." A companion T-shirt featured an Aryan boy wearing a Nazi Brown Shirt uniform with the motto "O'Reilly Youth," referring to Fox commentator Bill O'Reilly.
FOX'S THIN PELT
"The new information indicates a pattern in which President Bush, Vice President Cheney and their subordinates -- in public and behind the scenes -- made allegations depicting Iraq's nuclear weapons program as more active, more certain and more imminent in its threat than the data they had would support. On occasion administration advocates withheld evidence that did not conform to their views. The White House seldom corrected misstatements or acknowledged loss of confidence in information upon which it had previously relied." STORY

Baltimore Sun Fox News "fair game" CEO Roger Ailes won't apologize for Fox News' success or its tone. By his account, those alleging bias are the ones playing politics.
It is interesting to me that Fox News gets so pushed out of shape about "integrity" when they neither corrected Geraldo Rivera's false reports from Afghanistan, nor fired him, while all the world knew he had fabricated his stories and had lied outright, and later failed to reprimand him for revealing classified information during the second Gulf War-- an act so bad that the military expelled him from the theater. Fox News head Roger Ailes claims Fox has never retracted or corrected a story. To me, that's a poor track record, not something about which one should brag.

NY Times editorial
US mission in Iraq imperiled
Yesterday's attack, the worst in U.N. history, was another sign that surly, chaotic postwar Iraq is becoming a magnet for terrorists. That is yet another consequence of the Iraq war that the Bush administration failed to anticipate, like the uncontrolled postwar looting, the delays in restoring water and electricity, the ambushes of American soldiers and the sabotage of infrastructure.

Bush to ask UN for troop help in Vietnam, uh, Iraq
Iraq Counterpoint Bob Herbert, NY Times - One of the many reasons Vietnam spiraled out of control was the fact that America's top political leaders never clearly defined the mission there, and were never straight with the public about what they were doing. Domestic political considerations led Kennedy, then Johnson, then Nixon to conceal the truth about a policy that was bankrupt from the beginning. They even concealed how much the war was costing.

"It does not address the intelligence problems that led to the September 11th attacks, continuing a failed policy of simply granting more power to the government instead of ensuring the government uses its existing powers effectively."
