Jake turns 6
Seen here sunning on my sister’s boat. The actual date was last week. We forgot; he’ll never know.
Cooper interviews “Gannon”
"Jeff Gannon” news is all over the place now, so I’ll be taking a break from “Gannon” posting for a while. I recommend AMERICAblog and Media Matters for their continuing work. But in this one last post I point to Editor and Publisher:
Asked this afternoon about reports that he was scheduled to appear on the Anderson Cooper’s CNN show tonight, he denied it strongly. One hour later, a CNN spokesman told E&P, “He’s taping it right now.”
He’s a chronic liar! Here’s the Anderson Cooper interview via Media Matters. (It’s long so give it time to download).
I’m with New Jersey
We’ve all seen the Blockbuster ”Celebrate the end of late fees” ads. It turns out that what they really mean is “an 8 day rental and if it’s not back you buy it.” But then:
The company said due dates at its 4,500 U.S. stores would remain one week for games and two days or one week for movies.
New Jersey’s AG filed a lawsuit. It wasn’t a bad campaign. If they’d honestly made clear the qualifiers in the ads they wouldn’t be in this mess.
