Oh, and if you haven't already, be sure to check out Mr. DenBeste's analysis of the Kyoto accord. Why isn't this man sydnicated already? This analysis belongs on the comment pages of the newspapers of record, not just the web. Of particular note is the analysis of why even if Bush were to declare his intent to go ahead with Kyoto, it's still a dead letter.
I plan to forward the analysis to my Scientific American loving friend, and enjoy the resulting debate. Always fun.
That took what? Three weeks? Four perhaps, since he was put under British and American custody. Now the interesting thing is if the Gaolers release him. Watch for the "Free Sadat" posters popping up on SFSU soon.
HonestReporting announces the launch of TerrorPetition.com, a major petition drive calling on newspapers and broadcast media to label Palestinian suicide bombers as "terrorists."
News agencies like MSNBC.com, BBC and Reuters have come under criticism for refusing to refer to Palestinian suicide bombers as "terrorists." Instead, they use the terms "militants," "activists," or even "freedom fighters."
TerrorPetition.com is collecting 100,000 signatures, at which point we will present the petition to editors and executives of hundreds of media outlets worldwide.
Please take a moment to sign the petition. I note that they intend to forward a copy to Al-Star once they reach their 100,000 signatures.
