on the Jeff Gannon/Jim Guckert scandal
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.
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
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?

Gates more newsworthy...)

Gannon affair is wackiest White House press flap yet
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
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."

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?
