  1. Anyone home????

    • It’s Monday…

      • DOh. And he was just talking about this. OK. Will stream Noon (ET) show on KTLK–cannot deal with Ed Schultz yelling at me for three hours (waiting to have Randy yell at me for three hours 😉

  2. Ask Eliot: If banks involved in the Libor scandal were getting loans at higher rates than they reported, wouldn’t that constitute a material event causing an immediate reevaluation of their creditworthiness and a credit downgrade by the ratings agencies?

  3. Sam…

    It’s Seenor not Senior

  5. WikiLeaks ‏@wikileaks

    Bill Keller, was so obsessed with retweeting praise about himself, that he retweeted @journalismfest link to the hoax to his 30k followers

  6. Hilarious!
    Sams long analogy of Mitt R. (the apple) falling far from “the tree” The Father, and rolling down a hill and…

  7. From Keller’s hack article:”Had The Times had exclusive access to the WikiLeaks cables, we could have pursued a similar government-review-before-publication policy, thus safeguarding national security from legal and public scrutiny.”

    Soooo….. safeguard national security from legal scrutiny eh?

    This also: “These decisions are never easy. I was confronted with this dilemma as editor at The Times with the story of the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping of American citizens. As I wrote in my December 16, 2005 statement justifying my decision to hold publication of the NSA story for a year, I came to the conclusion that the Bush Administration’s arguments to suppress outweighed the public’s right to know:

    “Officials also assured senior editors of The Times that a variety of legal checks had been imposed that satisfied everyone involved that the program raised no legal questions. As we have done before in rare instances when faced with a convincing national security argument, we agreed not to publish at that time.”

    Keller is complicit in blatant illegality and also of aiding in covering it up.

    “Officials also assured senior editors of The Times that a variety of legal checks had been imposed that satisfied everyone involved”

    Is not an acceptable defense. How pathetic. He should resign immediately.

    uncertainty very soon it will be famous, due to its feature contents.
