Cleaning up the Mess

I shudder to think of the coverage when they discover the weapons cache more than five times larger than #OWS' in my kitchen.

They should have stuck to stockpiling something safer, like pepper spray.

Rep. Anthony Weiner announced his resignation today amidst a whirlwind of press attention and pressure from fellow congressmen regarding his completely legal, but creepy and kind of funny behaviour.

In other news there's still that a potential genocide thing going on in South Kordofan, Sudan. Boooooorrrrrriiiiiing.

Maybe they'll be lucky and there'll be a sex scandal involving someone white along side all the black people being murdered and such.

The assertion in the second paragraph of the story MPs, environmentalists slam greenhouse gas targets claims that the new legislation would require "most of Canada's industries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by 18 per cent in three years," while in fact the legislation calls for an 18 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas intensity, not emissions.

This important distinction is acknowledged in the CBC's own story, Industry grumbles but says it can meet emissions targets, and I believe it should be acknowledged here as well. Intensity based greenhouse gas targets versus absolute targets is one of the most argued and misunderstood nuances of the environmental debate and I believe great care should be taken to highlight the difference whenever possible.

Tonight PBS will air the first episode of a new series called Bill Moyers Journal called Buying the War which will apparently be available online after airing tonight. This documentary will tackle the War in Iraq and seeks to hold responsible the press for its reprehensible behaviour during the run up to the war.


How did the mainstream press get it so wrong? How did the evidence disputing the existence of weapons of mass destruction and the link between Saddam Hussein to 9-11 continue to go largely unreported? "What the conservative media did was easy to fathom; they had been cheerleaders for the White House from the beginning and were simply continuing to rally the public behind the President -- no questions asked. How mainstream journalists suspended skepticism and scrutiny remains an issue of significance that the media has not satisfactorily explored," says Moyers. "How the administration marketed the war to the American people has been well covered, but critical questions remain: How and why did the press buy it, and what does it say about the role of journalists in helping the public sort out fact from propaganda?"

Bill Moyers, president of the Schumann Center for Media and Democracy has been retired for the last two years but returns to PBS tonight which is causing a mini-spectacle in the right wing media already trying to discredit Moyers before the the episode even airs. For anyone curious to hear more about Moyers and the premier Democracy Now! has extensive coverage of the premier and a lengthy interview with Moyers which aired this morning.
