How the press failed on Iraq


A hard look back at the past five years -- with all its death and destruction and missteps -- reveals that the American media has been sleepwalking through the war.

Stephen Colbert's routine at the White House Correspondents' Dinner in 2006 was celebrated or lamented for his pointed barbs at the president while Bush sat just a few feet away. What many may forget, however, is that his critique of the press was just as biting -- and widely resented by many of the journalists in attendance.


McCain says he hopes Bush will find some time in his busy schedule to campaign for him. Busy schedule? Um, did you see what he was doing right before you got there? [on screen: Bush tap dancing] See you on the campaign trail, boys!" --Jon Stewart

Obama Drops VP Bomb and Photograph Leak


"I don't know how somebody who is in second place is offering the vice presidency to the person who is first place," Obama said, drawing cheers and a lengthy standing ovation from about 1,700 people. He added: "I am not running for vice president. "I am running for president of the United States of America."...He accused Clinton's campaign of leaking a photograph of him wearing traditional African garments, including a turban, during a visit to Africa. That was "straight out of the Republican playbook," Obama said. "That's not real change."

Ann Coulter Dating Robert Novak?


Of course, the "first and final" performance of Bush and the Busharoos brought down the house..."Unbelievably great," said Ann Coulter, who was there as Bob Novak's date. (How does she stay so thin? Never ate, chewed gum all night.)

After Two and One Half Years of Ratings In The Toilet, MSNBC Cancels Tucker Carlson! The Inhumanity!


MSNBC on Monday canceled Tucker Carlson's daily show, temporarily replacing it with a campaign-focused hour anchored by NBC News chief White House correspondent David Gregory.

Carlson has had a daily program on MSNBC since June 2005 after the bow-tied anchor moved to the channel at the invitation of then-MSNBC president Rick Kaplan. "Tucker" never really found its footing in the ratings, either in late primetime or early evening. Carlson also has hosted CNN's "Crossfire" and PBS' "Tucker Carlson: Unfiltered." He will remain with the network as senior campaign correspondent after the show goes off the air Friday.
