Matt Drudge reports:

CNN has reviewed and agreed to run a controversial ad produced by a pro-abortion group that falsely accuses Supreme Court nominee John Roberts of filing legal papers supporting a convicted clinic bomber!

The news network has agreed to a $125,000 ad buy from NARAL, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned, for a commercial which depicts a bombed out 1998 Birmingham, AL abortion clinic.

The Birmingham clinic was bombed seven years after Roberts signed the legal briefing.

Longtime ABC News anchor Peter Jennings has died of lung cancer at the age of 67.

Jennings began anchoring ABC's "World News Tonight" in 1983.

The longtime reporter was one of the "Big Three" anchors who dominated the evening news in America for over two decades. The other two network anchors, Tom Brokaw and Dan Rather, had already stepped down.

ABC News issued a statement.

(KRT) - Citing "simple decency," Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison demanded Friday that journalists quit poking around for details on Supreme Court nominee John Roberts' adopted children...

Some have also focused on other aspects of his life. On Thursday, the online Drudge Report revealed that a New York Times reporter had made inquiries about the Roberts children, Josephine and Jack, ages 5 and 4.

In an article entitled "Americans aren't all agog for blogs," Boston Herald reporter Brett Arends tries to minimize the importance of blogs by citing a new study claiming that "fewer than 2 percent of Americans who go online read blogs once a week or more."

Arends starts off tongue-in-cheek:

It's ironic how feminist journalists, always decrying the unfair standards of beauty for women, could turn around and attack Katherine Harris for her makeup.

TAMPA - During the presidential election recount of 2000, Florida was in a white-hot spotlight, focused on a woman not accustomed to national publicity - then-Secretary of State Katherine Harris.

Harris' decision against a ballot recount made her a hero to Republicans and anathema to Democrats. She also was bashed for something else: her makeup.

One Democratic commentator compared her to Cruella DeVil of the Disney movie `"101 Dalmatians.'' Comic Jay Leno said a cold snap made Florida so chilly Harris "put on a third layer of makeup.''

On Monday, on a conservative radio talk show, Harris, now a congresswoman from Longboat Key running for the U.S. Senate, hit back, blaming newspapers for the criticism and charging that some - without saying which - altered her photographs.

"I'm actually very sensitive about those things, and it's personally painful,'' Harris said when host Sean Hannity asked about her image problems from 2000.

"But they're outrageously false, No. 1, and No. 2, you know, whenever they made fun of my makeup, it was because the newspapers colorized my photograph,'' Harris said.
