All the f*cking lies
Lara Logan. Nearly raped to death. Now telling us, it was merely them sexist males. Again.
But in the weeks following Ms. Logan’s assault, other women recounted being harassed and assaulted while working overseas, and groups like the Committee to Protect Journalists said they would revise their handbooks to better address sexual assault.
Jeff Fager, the chairman of CBS News and the executive producer of “60 Minutes,” said that the segment about the assault on Ms. Logan would raise awareness of the issue. “There’s a code of silence about it that I think is in Lara’s interest and in our interest to break,” he said.
Free bacon for life ... if you can find the missing word, in above article (and I'm guessing no one needs any clues). I however, think I'm going to be sick. The stench of filth, of evil and its trademark attendant. Go ahead, take a whiff ... breathe deep the gathering gloom. Hell ... hell is most definitely here.

LOS ANGELES - "The Fuehrer Gives the Jews a City” may rank as the oddest film fragment in cinematic history. The 23 minutes of raw, unedited footage is all that has been found of a Nazi propaganda project to prove that the “model” Theresienstadt camp was a veritable paradise for its Jewish inmates.
Shot in early 1944, when the horrors of Hitler’s Final Solution finally trickled out to the West, the film was part of an effort to hoodwink a visiting International Red Cross delegation that all was productive work and wholesome recreation in Theresienstadt, and by extension in other concentration camps.
During the day, contented workers shoed horses, made pottery and designed handbags. Children played soccer or gorged themselves on sandwiches. In the evenings, well-dressed men and women attended concerts and lectures.All this to the incongruous background music of Offenbach’s “Gaite Parisienne” or a jazzy “Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen."

Who ya gunna believe ... huh. Me, or your lying eyes?
President Obama chided the news media Wednesday for continuing to focus national attention on the non-issue of his American citizenship. "Fascinating how many of Obama's birther remarks…were aimed at the media for stoking this," tweeted Howard Kurtz shortly after the speech.
The birth certificate issue was a distraction, Obama stated, and the White House decision to release his long-form birth certificate was an attempt to re-focus national attention on the important issues, specifically his budget proposal. But which media outlets were most guilty of sustaining attention on the issue? On cable news, at least, the answer runs contrary to the usual media narrative.
As it turns out, one was 35 times more likely to hear about the birther issue on CNN or MSNBC than on Fox News during the week of April 11 through 17, when Obama was touting his budget. The cable network most often railed against as the birther-enabler was least likely - by far - to even mention the issue.
Me, oft rather self deprecating (busted clock/2x). Occasionally, even managing to output a post ... worth reading even. Don't get around the web much anymore, being quite disappointed with far too many of my keyboard compatriots. And then I espy a post like this one here, to remind me. What the blogosphere is all about:
Obama's greatest victory of the entire past year -- his crowning achievement for the past twelve months in the most powerful office in all the world -- is his celebrated triumph in successfully producing a common form of secondary identification.
As of right now, that's what he's running on: That he, like 88% of all non-incarcerated adults in America, has access to his own personal records. Look how ineffably pleased with himself he is about all this: (vid console/CNN ... Chucklehead yukkin' it up). And for the past two nights I've endured Chris Matthews telling me about Obama's "brilliant" "Perry Mason moment," how masterful he was in all of this.
This is what he's doing victory laps on right now. That's what Chris Matthews is praising him to the heavens for. He's grinning like King Sh*t of F*ck Mountain, and bathing in rapturous applause, because he accomplished something considerably less difficult than opening a Netflix account. Six months from now, I hear Obama's going to announce a "major initiative" to subscribe to Sports Illustrated.
