And another thing: It's dawned on me that one of the champions for the poor, and the women of the world, is an Op-Ed Contributor for the NY Times, Nicholas D. Kristoff. You'll recall the young Pakistan woman whom the tribal council ordered to be raped by four men to punish her family? That's his topic today at http://www.nytimes.com/2005/03/05/opinion/05kristof.html?hpt
And it's well worth reading. Those guys have now been freed from prison, some from death row.
It's time, I think, to stop yelling at the Major Media as a whole and take notice of the really fine reporters who consistantly report the news accurately and with care. They do not deserve to be tarred with the same brush as someone like Bob Novak has earned.
Decent and honorable reporters should be acknowledged. The nation is damned lucky to have them.
