  •  Keith Olbermann's Sub Tonight... (4.00)
    ..."Alex" somebody, went after the Friday dump HARD. She led off with "The Pentagon released information documenting confirmed cases of Koran desecration at Guantanamo after normal business hours today, in the hopes of minimizing fallout...etc.."

    Then, talking to Barry McCafferty, she brought it up AGAIN, saying something like: "Released the info at 7:15 this evening. Fortunately for our viewers, this broadcast doesn't air until EIGHT o'clock, allowing us to bring this to you as our lead story tonight!"

    Then she got Howard Fineman from Newsweek saying "I think now it's The Pentagon that needs to review its internal reporting procedures!"

    She even got McCafferty - a retired general - to blame Rumsfeld's "improper and likely illegal policies" for the whole torture mess.

    I think this Deep Throat thing has energized a lot of reporters. Not that Olbermann's show doesn't usually call it like it is, but there's just enthusiasm...that hasn't been there for years.

    And I hope they pound this Friday dump clear into next week.

      The Pentagon Lied - People Died

      In order to attempt to stem the inevitable world wide wave of anti-American sentiment, the American people and NewsWeek should call for the immediate resignations of:

                Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld

                Pentagon spokesman Larry Da Rita

                Whitehouse press secretary Scott McClellan

      and an Official Apology by President George W. Bush
