2: MSNBC Struggles To Report Ossama’s Views Of Saddam

More news behind the news, and in a startlingly similar vein to a Scoop from the very recent past. It seems that nothing is quite as effective at tripping up the major US news networks as a statement from public enemy number one.

8: Bush Is Racking Up "Frequent Liar Miles"

12: What's Next? War Against France, North Korea?

They've pretty much tried it all; blaming Saddam for anthrax, West Nile Virus, 9-11, and ties to terrorists. They showed us cartoons of roving sci-fi labs in Iraq's hyperspace (because, apparently, no one has seen the mobile labs let alone provide proof they ...

Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport
