Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. - John Wayne

Hat tip to the folks over at www.registeredmedia.com.

Those lacking a sense of humor need not comment.

My favorite is article was this one from Newsweek:

"Saddam could decide to take Baghdad with him. One Arab intelligence officer interviewed by Newsweek spoke of 'the green mushroom' over Baghdad—the modern-day caliph bidding a grotesque bio-chem farewell to the land of the living alongside thousands of his subjects as well as his enemies. Saddam wants to be remembered. He has the means and the demonic imagination. It is up to U.S. armed forces to stop him before he can achieve notoriety for all time."

Funny how wrong they get everything...
Those with no sense of humor won't be commenting. They'll be riotting. It would be interesting to see the spin on coverage of riots inspired by a fake joke of a magazine cover.
Oh, by the way, the FBI recently released a report confirming Newsweek's original story, that a copy of the Koran WAS flushed down the toilet, and that prisoners are beaten and otherwise severely mistreated. Here, check the story:

"http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/4581383.stm"
"http://www.nytimes.com/2005/05/26/politics/26koran.html?ex=1117771200&en=745809d24437f846&ei=5040&partner=MOREOVERNEWS"

Hope you can maitain your sense of humor!
Owen:

Before you start crowing about how right the media is, you might first try something novel, like reading your sources first.

I quote from the NYT article you cited - its not even very far down the page:

"...the new documents do not say the F.B.I. agents witnessed the episodes themselves. Rather, they are accounts of unsubstantiated accusations made by the prisoners during interrogation."

and

"The document does not indicate whether the agent believed the account."

The articles you cited are a very weak attempt at CYA by the MSM.

And, for the record, we do have a sense of humor here - that's why we don't delete such comments as your own.
