Edsel v. Studebaker

Email Email Print

From this morning’s From this morning’s New York Times:”>New York Times:

Since taking the baton from Mr. Rather, Mr. Schieffer has actually shed fewer viewers than Mr. Williams, who has lost nearly a half-million (or 5.2 percent) compared with the same period a year ago, when the broadcast was anchored by Tom Brokaw. ABC has lost about as many as CBS – nearly 300,000, or about 3.5 percent – at a time when it was using substitutes for Peter Jennings during his treatment for lung cancer.

With Mr. Jennings’s death on Aug. 7, ABC now finds itself in need of a new anchor, though it is not expected to make changes on the scale CBS is contemplating. Still, it could be in Mr. Moonves’s interest to let ABC News go first, particularly as ABC decides whether to move one of its most recognizable hosts, Charles Gibson of “Good Morning America,” to the evening shift.

What Moral Implications?

Fetal Tissue Heals Burns
Tests Show Treatment Led to Normal Skin Regrowth

What if “tests show” that the only fetal tissue that works is ninth month fetal tissue?

“One fetus could theoretically provide material for hundreds or thousands of burn victims, although Hohlfeld said he suspected that would not remove some people’s objections to the use of tissue from an aborted fetus.”

That is the only discussion of the moral aspect of this “testing.” Can the Washington Post editors at least ask around a bit about implications?

UPDATE: Professor Bainbridge has some thoughts.

“Oil for Enron”

Email Email Print

Claudia Rosett has a new essay that includes her usual mix of fresh reporting and analysis that begins:

Since the Oil for Food program came to an end in 2003, it has been described — accurately enough — as oil for palaces, oil for terror and oil for fraud. Now it turns out the U.N. relief program in Iraq was also oil for Enron.

Read the whole thing.

Interestign sidenote: Claudia’s piece appears in its usual place in, but it is also in the print edition of the WSJ. I have long been puzzled as to why the Journal does not put all of her pieces in ink as she is one of the finest if not the best invetsigative essayist at work today. Perhaps today’s double placement will be a regular feature.
