Michelle Malkin reports that Al Franken is officially in whining mode on the Air America stealing-money-from-the-children scandal. He said he became an "involuntary investor" just weeks in by foregoing his paycheck. Congratulations, Al. Perhaps now you know how conservatives feel about being "involuntary investors" to another liberal radio network: NPR.


Then at 11, in my last few minutes in the car, WAMU aired "As It Happens" from the CBC. They devoted a loving segment to Marc Emery, the Maple Leaf marijuana menace, fulminating egomanically about how he is the mighty ruler of the "cannabis people," and they are oppressed by America, which somehow resembles the Chinese government in its tyranny against Pot.


On Friday night's drive home from the Nats game, I tuned in to WAMU, American University's NPR station, and found a special Peace Talks radio documentary hosted by Walter Cronkite on the "Lessons of Hiroshima." The primary lesson, according to Walter the World Federalist, is that "Nuclear weapons and human beings cannot coexist. In the end, I believe this is the most important lesson of Hiroshima. We must eliminate nuclear weapons before they eliminate us."


Ken, it's sad to see coverage of embryonic stem cell research in general, which often omits is that the embryo is currently destroyed before the stem cells can be extracted.

(I'm not too sure about that, although the media did largely drop "pro-choice" in that era and switch to "abortion rights" lingo. But is the media less biased on abortion?
