Story from Earlier This Week:
"All they can say is that
we are alive,
that we continue to bother them, that we remain on our feet and
in combat until the ultimate victory, and that they await our
official announcement of victory."

"Does the State Department
really expect anyone
to believe that the aircraft carrying Veronica Bowers and her
7-month-old daughter that day was "accidentally" shot
down? How does one "accidentally" strafe an unarmed
aircraft?...The solution to America's drug problem lies in taking
the money out of the business
But until a national politician
takes first step toward breaking America's addiction to the drug
war, it will just be business as usual in the Andes and on the
streets of America's towns and cities."

recommendations will be followed," said Ralston Smith, an

"Journalism is such a noble
profession that we're
saddened to see how it is practiced at The Miami Herald
and El Nuevo Herald, where commissions and omissions are
made in pursuit of political and even misleading ends. To help
our readers, we include here a permanent section where we decipher
the B.S., or "Bilingual Scam" - the art of reporting
differently in English than in Spanish, so often practiced by
The Miami Herald and El Nuevo Herald."

Which U.S. Bank Was Named?
Carrio on Friday delivered a preliminary report on money laundering
that implicates domestic and foreign banks and business executives.
Carrio helped a U.S. Senate investigation probing money laundering
by Argentine banks, among others, and has been under police guard
after receiving threats earlier this year.
"``This is not against serious
business people, this
is not against serious bankers, this is against the thieves who
have seized power...in Argentina in recent years,'' Carrio told
a congressional investigative commission as supporters cheered.
"The banks named range from local institutions
such as Banco Republica and Banco Piano to foreign banks such
as Banque Nationale de Paris to Citigroup Inc. unit Citibank."

"Because I'm not an editor
or even on the staff
of Online Journalism Review, I assigned Amy Collins-Langfield
to cover the NarcoNews.com trial in New York. She turned in two
solid stories: a good Q&A with Web publisher-hellraiser Al
Giordano and a courtroom dispatch. Read 'em both.
"All those stupid, money-grubbing
jackoffs in Silicon
Valley are convinced the Internet is 'over' when it comes to
'content.' Fools. It's just beginning. The Giordanos of the world
won't get rich, but they're going to take down a lot of swine."
