12:35 p.m. today: Joe Strupp, Senior Editor, Editor & Publisher on the Jeff Gannon/Jim Guckert scandal

Editor & Publisher
Ari Fleischer spoke to Gannon/Guckert's boss
The former White House Press Secretary, in his first comment on the controversy over the ex-reporter, says he stopped calling on "Jeff Gannon" for a week, until the Texas Republican owner of Talon News assured him the site was not tied to the GOP. Fleischer also says he knew Guckert only by his alias.


Jeff Gannon/Jim Guckert

Minneapolis Star Tribune EDITORIAL
Phony journalist/Pimping for the White House
"..Guckert, in addition to reporting for a phony Web site, has no real journalism training and is a $200-an-hour gay prostitute. He ran numerous Web sites like militaryescortsm4m. com. The photos of Gannon that were displayed on those Web sites left nothing to the imagination about his physical attributes.
So the question becomes, just how did this character get White House press credentials, despite supposed post-Sept. 11 security requirements?"

Jeff Gannon/Jim Guckert
CBS, ABC: When will you begin covering this story that is all over the blogs, in Editor & Publisher, and in so many newspapers? Wonder why network television news is steadily losing audience? (Peter Jennings apparently thinks a banal interview with Bill Gates more newsworthy...)

Strange bedfellows
Gannon affair is wackiest White House press flap yet

Note to readers and emailers:
Yes, I am aware that "Gannon" appeared on another KTSA talk show several times. Hardly anyone (outside the White House) knew at the time that he was a plant, okay? But thanks for writing!

LEONARD PITTS JR./COMMENTARY

Ignorance may be bliss, but it's also dangerous

".. this is a president whose press conferences occur with only slightly more frequency than ice storms do in Key West, who ducks hard questions posed by actual reporters, preferring to bat slow pitches tossed by citizens prescreened for their support ... so planting a party stooge among the real reporters hardly seems out of character.

Iraqi died under CIA torture (AP) An Iraqi whose corpse was photographed with grinning U.S. soldiers at Abu Ghraib died under CIA interrogation while in a position condemned by human rights groups as torture - suspended by his wrists, with his hands cuffed behind his back, according to reports reviewed by The Associated Press.
"After we found out he was dead, they were nervous," Spc. Dennis E. Stevanus said of the CIA interrogator and translator. "They didn't know what the hell to do."

Army destroyed mock execution pictures (AP) -- Pictures of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan posing with hooded and bound detainees during mock executions were destroyed after the Abu Ghraib prison scandal in Iraq to avoid another public outrage, Army documents released Friday by the American Civil Liberties Union show.

Blockbuster's new "no late fee policy" attacked In a lawsuit, the state charged that Blockbuster failed to disclose key terms in the policy, including that overdue rentals are automatically converted to a sale on the eighth day after the due date.

BOB HERBERT
Our Friends, the Torturers
If Syria is such a bad actor - and it is - why would the Bush administration seize a Canadian citizen at Kennedy Airport in New York, put him on an executive jet, fly him in shackles to the Middle East and then hand him over to the Syrians, who promptly tortured him?
