The "greek columns" link has a link to a story about The Weather Channel making an appearance on "NBC Nightly News." This is what I feared when NBCU bought TWC. The next step is TWC on Olby or Maddow's shows.

It may be just me but Major Garrett has been in the tank for Obama from the get go. His reports have been nothing more than a press release from the campaign

I can't get the Major Garrett profile to load.
Anyone else having that trouble?
I admit that I am, at times,
"computer challenged."

I don't agree with that assessment of Garrett's work. He was given the responsibility to cover BHO and has been even handed. Same for Cameron who has the McCain story. Garrett had to walk a fine line considering what liberals think about FoxNews - tough spot to be in.

It loaded OK for me just now. Maybe just a temporary glitch.
 
I agree with you DS. Garrett is a scrupulously fair reporter. You may not agree with what he reports all the time, but then again the newsliars smear him as a Republican tool. So it seems he is truly fair and balanced.

The Garrett link hates me and refuses to divulge to me its wondrous contents.

Finally! A 25-54 demo win for "The Factor"! Let's hope that trend continues.
I predict that CNN will win the ratings tonight.
