Prayers for his family and friends. He was a good man and did a great job everywhere he went. I loved his interaction with reporters when he worked as White House Press Secretary.
THOMAS: We have gone for collective punishment against all of Lebanon and Palestine. And what's happening -- and that's the perception of the United States.
SNOW: Well, thank you for the Hezbollah view, but I would encourage you. . . .
THOMAS: Nobody's accepting your explanation. What is it say, to call for. . . .Heh. That's how I'll always remember him. Rest in peace Sir.

Just contrast this...
Obama to take big step in Democratic race
McCain to mark Cuban day with new attack on Obama
He pounded Obama on Monday for pledging to meet the leader of Iran, saying to do so would reward a government in Tehran dedicated to destroying U.S. ally Israel.
At a town hall meeting in Miami, McCain planned to accuse Obama on Cuban Independence Day of wanting to soften the decades-old U.S. embargo against the communist government of Cuba.Any difference in tone or content? It seems like it to me. Not only that, the McCain story is more about Obama than McCain. The pro-Obama story mentions McCain briefly...

Of course, CNN has a history of appeasing despots and currying favor with totalitarian regimes.
Is there any conceivable circumstance where CNN would apologize to President Bush for anything they said about his administration? Especially if it was "demanded" from them? And they call themselves the most trusted name in news. If they had any integrity, they'd ... moot point, they don't. Wankers.

I'm going to call bullshit on this one without even seeing the data, the questions, the demographics, or anything besides the fact that it comes from the New York Times. This is the same journalistic rag that divulged a secret program for tracking terrorists that was vital to our national security. This is the same journalistic rag that pimped the Plame fiasco/non-outing of a CIA desk-jockey whose asinine husband bragged she was in the CIA. This is the same journalistic rag that has lied about the economy, lied about the Administration, lied about Iraq, lied about the military, and kept lying over and over again anytime they thought it would further their leftist agenda.
I won't ever link them unless I absolutely have to. I won't buy their paper, read their website, or believe anything they say or write. They have zero credibility and should be bankrupt financially since they're already morally bankrupt. With their declining readership, the financial part is coming soon and I will toast their demise.

So the last quarter growth was down to 0.6% of GDP, which is much lower than the previous quarter's "sizzling" 4.9% growth.
The Commerce Department reported Thursday that the gross domestic product, or GDP, increased at a feeble 0.6 percent annual rate from October through December. The reading, unchanged from a previous estimate a month ago, provided stark evidence of just how much the economy has weakened. In the previous three months, the economy had a sizzling 4.9 percent growth rate.
The GDP measures the value of all goods and services produced in the United States and is the best barometer of economic health.
If last quarter's growth was so "sizzling", why were we getting the doom-and-gloom stories throughout the past year? Why should anyone doubt that the media has been spinning the economic news for the past 7 years? We still haven't had a single quarter of negative growth and the talk of a recession has been non-stop. It's disgusting how the media's hatred of the Bush administration has dominated the coverage. If this were a Democrat in office, this last quarter would have been the "blip" or "market" correction and seen as temporary. Since it's not, the media deciders inform us that it is just a portent of things to come.
That's not all however, down further in the article we get this:
In a second report, fewer people signed up for unemployment benefits last week, although that did not change the broader picture of a deteriorating job market. The Labor Department said jobless claims fell by 9,000 to 366,000, a better showing than many economists forecast. Still, unemployment is expected to rise this year given all the problems affecting the economy.
Unemployment goes down, so of course that means unemployment is going to go up. George Orwell ain't got nothing on the MSM.

Shortly afterwards, police responded to a call from a man who said he was shot in the back at an address 1/2 of a mile away from the scene of the robbery. It is unknown whether these two incidents are related.
Idiots. They must think we're idiots. There's no other explanation.
Of course, that "traditional recession" they speak of has yet to see a single quarter of negative GDP.
I'm glad they clarified that for us... feh. Because Americans have never worried about retirement savings, interest rates, or jobs that had seemed safe.
They are peering over the edge and asking: How far down?
And the scariest part of all? No one can say for sure.

Specifically, here, and here, and finally here. This is obviously one of my pet peeves so I'm glad to see two of the more popular sites take up the point on their own. Go read their posts, especially the comments... then come on back and read Parts 1, 2, and 3 when you get a chance.
While you're at it, look around for a while and see if there's anything else that catches your interest. I'll be around.

Economists see US avoiding recession
But all is not lost... they find a way to look on the "bright side":
Glad to see they're still looking out for us. I would just ignore this as typical behavior from our 4th estate/5th column "deciders", but the United States economy is vastly influenced by confidence. Investors, Consumers, and Producers with confidence will make the economy grow even when things don't go perfectly. Shake that confidence and it doesn't matter how well our industries run, jobs increase, crops get harvested, etc... the economy is going to take a hit. The MSM intentionally tries to shake confidence in the U.S. economy trying to damage the administration. It's just one more reason to despise the media.
*UPDATE* I figured out why they had to print some good news today... I hadn't looked at the stock market results yet. More on the Dow here. Heh.
*UPDATE X2* That certainly didn't last long. Imagine my surprise. Sigh.
