WSJ.com’s LawBlog

Wednesday, March 1, 2006  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Another innovation at WSJ.com: LawBlog.

HowAppealing has a competitor, but there is plenty of room for two comprehensive legal news sites.

What is notable about the WSJ.com’s latest move is its furious pace to grab different silos while other online papers think that innovation means asking old, slow and unread reporters a blog.

How long before WSJ.com starts BlogBlog?

Rueters: What Would Goebbels Say?

Wednesday, March 1, 2006  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

In the Reuters report of President Bush’s surprize visit to Afghanistan, the preident is given 52 words of direct quote in a 24 paragraph story.

The spokesman for the defeated and despised Taliban, reached by satellite phone, is allocated 69 words:

The Taliban deputy leader and former defense minister Mullah Abdullah Akhund said on Wednesday that Bush’s “secret visit” showed the Taliban had a strong control over Afghanistan.

“If the American president’s visit had been announced in advance, the Taliban mujahideen would have greeted him with rockets and attacks. But Bush proved his cowardice by coming on a secret visit as a thief,” he told Reuters by satellite telephone.

“The Taliban mujahideen want to tell the American president … that they will continue attacking your Afghan puppets and American forces, will continue sending bodies of American soldiers to America and this jihad will go on.”

If, having found FDR in Tehran with Stalin and Churchill in November of 1943, I wonder if Reuters would have sought out Goebbels for a quote on why Roosevelt had travelled secretly to the summit?

So do most freedom loving people, which is why Reuters has to do a satellite-link with a terrorist in order to diminish the presidential trip.

More from the Washington Post and the New York Times.

Strategery

Bill Sammon was my guest in the first hour today, and the topic was his new book, Strategery, which is rocketing up the charts, thanks in part to a combo of Hillary and Drudge –the most potent brew in publishing.
