Will the French president be written down in history as a hero or a bully I wonder?

Canadian Air Force Col. Russell Williams,
"Mr. By the Book." This reminds me of the subplot to American Beauty.

Shouldn't good journalists forget about using "I" in their reports? Someone needs to tell Matt Lauer.

Hi Sue, on NBC's Today Show, Matt Lauer talked to Lou Dobbs about Juan Williams being fired from NPR for his comments about Muslims to Bill O'Reilly.

My husband said, "He was just expressing his opinion!" I started into "Journalists shouldn't have opinions" and Matt said the same thing.

I've tried to find a clip from the movie Broadcast News where the control box people are commenting on how William Hurt is doing as he is anchoring the news.

He finishes one report with, "Well I think that's great," and the top banana in the control box goes ape shouting, "Who the hell gives a s**t what he thinks!"
