Quick bytes

It being the holiday I thought I'd post some cheerier news that will likely get lost in the transom.

Score one for free speech. A Vermont high school student won the right to wear a tshirt mocking Bush.

In case you missed it, Fox News ratings are way down, while CNN ratings are rising. See for yourself.

A rather good MoDo column, courtesy of the irrepressible Rozius. As he so succinctly sums it up, "MoDo suggests that Bush traveling to New Orleans for a photo-op is like General Sherman dropping by Atlanta to cheer them up."

And it's a two-fer from behind the NYT paywall tonight. Frank Rich posts a stunning column on the White House's current PR campaign - Operation Nazi Analogy Blitzkrieg.

I'm no fan of CNN either Lester. I don't watch news on TV as a rule. All hype - no information. Still glad to see Fox going downhill though. I hold them responsible for much of the misinformation that people wrongly believe.

Hmmm...Fox News ratings are down and the Detroit News is losing thousands of subscribers a month. I think people are getting tired of unfair and unbalanced news!

Congrats on the new beau!

I didn't know the DetNews was doing so badly. Do you think they're losing out to the Free Press?
