Thin Line

By Marisa Demarco

Goodnight, Editorial Independence—It's reasonably safe to say that FOX News is slanted and bizarre, its anchors and analysts need only begin donning "I <3 righty, lol" T shirts to confirm what everyone else already knows. Even moderates joke about it, or let out long sighs, slowly shaking their heads at the latest bout of FOX "reporting." FOX owner Rupert Murdoch, who appears only slightly more innocuous and kindly than, say, Darth Sidious, is stalking the Wall Street Journal, his monstrous bags of money ready to snap into their saliva-sticky orifices another morsel of mainstream media. Goodnight, editorial independence.

Odds & Ends

By Devin D. O’Leary

Dateline: England—A judge presiding over the trial of three Muslims accused of using the Internet to incite terrorism admitted in court he doesn’t know what a website is. Judge Peter Openshaw brought a halt to the trial as a witness was being quizzed about an extremist Web forum. He told prosecutors at Woolrich Crown Court in east London, “The trouble is I don’t understand the language. I don’t really understand what a website is.” Prosecutor Mark Ellison tried to help the judge by explaining terms like “website” and “forum.” But the 59-year-old Openshaw admitted, “I haven’t quite grasped the concepts.” Violent Islamist material posted on the Internet, including beheadings of Western hostages, is central to the case. Concluding last Wednesday’s session and looking ahead to testimony on Thursday by a computer expert, the judge told Ellison, “Will you ask him to keep it simple, we’ve got to start from basics.”

Letters

[RE: Letters, “Football with the Don,” May 17-23] So now our boy Don Schrader looks to justify his lifestyle by holding up the behavior of “mammals, birds, reptiles, insects and other animals" as models for human social behavior. Don has read that some of those critters do it, so it must be a good idea for us humans, too. For the sake of Don's neighbors, let's hope he doesn't extend that concept to digging up their flowerbeds or going potty on the front lawn. I wonder if Don now lives in a tree and eats worms—after all, birds are into that, so it's gotta be good for us at the top of the evolutionary chain, too.
