    United States: Greg Palast on why Rather was right

    - They finally put Dan Rather out of his misery. Today, CBS finally terminated him and sent him to the electronic glue factory -- all for reporting the truth. But not all of it. Rather's "unsubstantiated story of Bush's military service" (says USA Today) got him canned. Yet, all the poor man did was repeat a story we put on BBC Television a year earlier -- that Poppy Bush put in the fix to get his son out of 'Nam and into the Texas Air Guard, spending his war years guarding Houston from Viet Cong attack.

    Politics: Peters Retaliates Against "Lazy Piece of NZ Herald Reporting"

    - Foreign Minister Winston Peters says a Weekend Herald story alleging acute sensitivities between himself and Trade and Defence Minister Phil Goff is a typically lazy piece of New Zealand Herald journalism that has at least 14 inaccuracies in it. "It is such a pitiful piece it is worth covering off the inaccuracies and lies – all of which could have been avoided if the journalist had the decency to attempt to check her facts with either myself or Mr Goff."
