Website S.O.P.
Usually I clean out the day's headline links between 10 and midnight and load an abbreviated page for overnight. New stuff is normally uploaded between 8 and 10 a.m. and stays all day and evening.
Sometimes I add during the day but only occasionally. Weekends don't get much updating if any at all.
Previous headline links are always available (by month) in the Headline Archive in the left column, or you can keyword search the entire site with the button

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.
