Dan Rather is retiring because he's 73.
It comes as a shock because CBS did a terrible job of succession planning.
He's retiring a year earlier than he wanted to,
but probably five years later than he should have. In Ken Auletta's
dishy New Yorker piece last week, Walter Cronkite
takes a few shots at him, and even supposed admirers like
Mike Wallace and Andy Rooney admit they don't even
I don't either. I don't watch any of the
nightly news shows anymore. Like a lot of people, I'm still at work
they come on, and they don't really merit TiVo.
When I have my choice it's Peter Jennings. He's soothing. Rather
has always kind of alarmed me. I'm not alone. The
CBS anchor's ratings have been shrinking -- he's long been
No. 3 -- and the networks' news shows along with
them. In Auletta's profile, we learn what we mostly already knew,
but the numbers are still shocking: The average
age of the big three's viewership is 60. Only 8 or 9 percent of the
crucial 18-34 demographic watches network news.
This is media death.
So let's be clear: Rathergate may have hastened
Rather's departure, but it didn't cause it. Which is not to say it
wasn't a scandal. The story of how CBS ran with
the Sept. 8 Bush report is an awful chapter in journalism and
reveals terrible flaws in the news organization.
I want to hand CBS's investigative-panel report on the mess to
every new hire at Salon; it should be taught at
every journalism school.
I hate to say something positive about CBS Whore News, but when
Walter Cronkite "attacked" Dan Rather,
he pointed out that Rather was always in a distant third place in the ratings. Shouldn't
CBS be commended for
stickin' with a guy they trusted, a proven veteran instead of going

GOP Lovefest Ends
Trent Lott warns Giuliani about gays
If there are two people conservative Republicans
really can't stand it's Howard Dean and Rudy Giuliani.
Bob Novak was after Rudy last week, quoting Trent
Lott warning Giuliani at a fundraiser "about roadblocks"
along his path to the White House. Because
Lott likes Giuliani, he just wanted to let Rudy know about the
"heavy burdens" the former mayor had laid on the
GOP by supporting abortion, gay rights, and gay marriage.
The GOP would never run with a pro-choice, anti-gun, pro-gay rights "Republican" like
Rudy's being played like a cheap date, believing their horseshit about
running him in 2008.
They needed Rudy's lies in New York at NaziCon
2004 to counter the "Where's
attacks that Kerry was too pussy to deliver at DemoCon 2004.
John, why did you decided to surrender when the whole country
Karl Rove, like the rest of us, thought Kerry might actually want
to be president and that he would
come out fighting when he took the stage last August, but Kerry surrendered
- months in advance.
Rudy sold his soul to the GOP when he got on TV, braying about "all
the millions" that Bush showered
on NYC since 9-11, but the truth is Bush shafted them and Rudy obviously
Karl Rove was trying to check-raise Kerry with Rudy, but Kerry
folded his damn cards, instead.
Since the GOP was already paying for Rudy's room, liquor and hookers, they
went ahead and put him
on TV, but we and the GOP knew the election was
over before NaziCon
If we run Hillary in 2008 we still might lose, but at least we
won't surrender months in advance.

A semi-auto hand gun uses
the gas pressure built up from the fired bullet to eject the cartridge
insert a fresh round. If the magazine is empty
the action would stop in the "open" position which would be
visibly obvious. To insert a fresh round a loaded
magazine would need to be inserted, and the action cycled manually.
Therefore, it would not be
unusual to empty a handgun, leaving no rounds in the chamber or anywhere
and the cops not pay too much attention to it since
it was obviously unloaded.

But it's not a story unless it involves Clinton's honker
The Florida Inspector General who originally
investigated Curtis' claims was found dead in
a Georgia motel room two weeks after he told Curtis
that "this goes all the way to the top."
Police called it a "suicide," but Friedman has
discovered a number of troubling new facts and
inconsistencies about the police "investigation" (which
was re-opened after Friedman's reporting
emerged on the Internet) including photographs
of the crime scene which the police had previously
said in their report did not exist.
Clint Curtis' story has quietly rocked top
Republicans from Tallahassee to Capitol Hill. Newspaper
accounts of Curtis' affidavit and testimony have
been published in various local papers (Feeney's hometown
letter received a legal threat from both Feeney
and YEI when they ran their story), yet the national media has
largely been silent on this story despite the reams
of public records, court documents and other hard evidence
which confirm Curtis' story while continually debunking
both Feeney's and YEI's explanations.

Defense That's Offensively Weak
What the administration doesn't acknowledge,
as it crows about democracy blooming in the Iraqi desert,
is that our defense against terrorists who want
to attack here is full of holes, and that the war in Iraq may
have made it even worse. Despite the promising
election, the war has created more insurgents and given
them a training ground. It has siphoned off attention,
money and troops that could have been used to catch
Osama, pursue Al Qaeda and secure our own country.
And it has alienated not only many Arabs, but also
allies who were eager, after 9/11, to help us fight
Al Qaeda - even Italians are mad now.
Every time we turn around, some administration
official charged with our protection is claiming that it will take
3 more years, or 5 more, to fix something that
should have been put in place right after 9/11 - or even 20 years ago.

Kiss of Death
by red-hot Robert Parry at consortiumnews.com
In the latest conventional wisdom about
winds of freedom sweeping the Middle East, both mainstream
and conservative commentators bought into the notion
that Arabs were rallying to Bush's orations about
liberty and finally appreciating his conquest of
Iraq. But the reality is that Bush remains one of the region's
most despised figures.
So when Bush rushed to center stage ostensibly
to urge on thousands of Lebanese demonstrators demanding
Syrian military withdrawal - and implicitly
to take credit for the developments - the U.S. news media missed
the other story: that Bush's grandstanding
was putting those protesters and their cause in danger.
One of the results was a backlash that saw
pro-Syrian Hezbollah stage a counter rally of a half million people
in Beirut on March 8, denouncing U.S. intervention
in Lebanese politics and accusing Washington of regional
"terrorism." This massive outpouring
emboldened Lebanon's parliament to re-elect pro-Syrian Prime Minister
Omar Karami, who had resigned just nine days earlier
in face of the anti-Syrian protests.

Democrats are up against in today's GOP
by Gene Lyons
Unlike Democrats, typically all over the
place, Republican-oriented pundits agree almost
all the time÷and not just substantively,
but tactically, too. Faxes and e-mails go out from the
Republican National Committee, and GOP sophists
jump into line like the Rockettes.
According to David Brock, the onetime Republican "hit
man" whose book, "The Republican
Noise Machine," explains exactly how the
system works, the White House's "explicit goal
is to get us to the point where there are blue
[state] facts and red [state] facts."
Judging by my e-mail, it's working.
Hardly a day passes that I don't hear from perfectly decent,
intelligent citizens who believe that there's
proof Saddam's WMD were smuggled into Syria or
that documents implicating him in 9/11 have been
found. This was Orwell's great fear: that the
very concept of objectivity would disappear from
political discourse. "Collective solipsism,"
he called it; the ability to convince people that
2 + 2 = 5.
Great point and great column.
Red state facts say Dubya was a
war hero and Kerry was the deserter.
Red state facts say trees cause pollution
and chemical factories make the air cleaner.
Red state facts say Dubya's war and recession are
better than Clinton's peace and prosperity.

Kill a Baghdad Chief of Police
As Rummy might say, "They have the freedom to commit crimes"
Insurgents posing as policemen killed a
Baghdad police chief on Thursday, stopping his
truck at a fake checkpoint, then shooting him in
an attack claimed by al Qaeda.
Bush's invasion government has set up a
new police force, army and security service, often
trained by foreign instructors, to instill a sense
of order in Iraq. But many say insurgents bent on
resisting the invasion force can easily penetrate
their ranks. In southeastern Baghdad, another
policeman, Iyad Abed, was shot dead by gunmen on
his way to work.
Mainly Sunni Arab insurgents have kept up
a campaign of suicide attacks, car bombings and
execution-style killings, denting what Bush and
his good puppy networks have brayed about
Iraq's recent elections stabilizing the country.
Little Secret: Private Pensions Fail
by Joe Conason
Nobody thinks McCain would knowingly mislead
the American people about an issue as
momentous as Social Security. But when he claims
that all those other experiments were
"very successful," he simply doesn't know what
he's talking about.
Perhaps somebody in the Senator's
office skimmed a right-wing think-tank report and passed along
this dubious bit of tripe as the boss hustled off
to the Fox studio. Before he ventures out again to promote
the Bush plan, Mr. McCain ought to devote further
study to the unappetizing results of those British,
Swedish, Polish and Chilean programs.
If conservatives truly think we should learn
from those foreign retirement experiments, maybe we should
also examine the progressive social and economic
policies in countries like Sweden and Britain÷such as
universal health care, free or subsidized child
care, and free or cheap higher education. Why should we
imitate their failures and ignore their successes?
"I have to admit that all of this began with
the U.S. invasion of Iraq and that it now looks
like the equivalent of the Berlin Wall coming
down in 1989 for the Middle East. Bush's vision
and strategic design has been absolutely dead
on and a lot of his critics are having to come around
and say yeah, he was right after all."

After that, he'll put in his clothes and then his wife and his kids.
