“I sat there in a moment of devastation with my hands in prayer pose asking for peace and healing in the hearts of men,” she recalls. “I was having such a strong moment and my heart was open, and I started to cry.”
Her mood changed abruptly, she says, when “all of a sudden I hear ‘clickclickclickclickclick’ all over the place. And there are people in the bushes, all around me, and they are photographing me, and now I’m pissed. I felt like a zoo animal.”
The National Review ran a magazine cover in which they Photoshopped signs at an Obama rally to read “ABORTION” instead of “FORWARD” as they originally did.

The image at the bottom shows another photo taken at the same rally.
When Photoshop is used for evil.
What annoys me the most about this CNN segment is the fact that they’ve already done their own investigation on this topic, years ago. So, is CNN now saying that their reporting was shoddy? The CNN investigative report, which was brought to the attention of Donald Trump when he was recently interviewed on CNN, comes to the conclusion that the birther controversy is completely untrue.
So, once again CNN does it’s usual schtick, the one Jon Stewart points out all the time, they are not reporting the news, they are reporting the controversy as if it were the news. Hey CNN, if you stand by your investigative report the segment here should be called, “Why is Trump lying?” or maybe something like, “Keeping them honest.”

The House is supposed to be in recess, but Speaker Nancy Pelosi called members back today to vote on an aid package for states. Rangel took advantage of the special session to speak on the floor in his own defense for about 30 minutes. - TPM

The Shame of the Fourth Estate
It has become fashionable to dismiss Keith Olbermann as an over-the-top ranter — or as the MSNBC host put it himself, “a mirror image of that which I assail.” But there was nothing over-the-top about his special comment about Shirley Sherrod. Every word he spoke was true. And the only thing that made his stance so remarkable is the abject failure of the mainstream media — especially this week — to accurately describe the source of the allegation against Sherrod, or to chronicle the long-term impact of the “complete perversion of journalism” practiced 365 days a year by Fox News (and the right-wing bloggers and radio hosts that make up the rest of this wackosphere). - Charles Kaiser
