If I were KRISTOF, I would not have written this column. Instead, I would spent my time researching and not mouthing off in emotional support of his friend, but rather helping us all get to the truth of the matter, if it lies beyond the CBS report. It's so much easier to lean back and pontificate than to do the heard research that CBS started and that others must finish. No cause is worth gross deception and waste, if that proves to be the case here.

I still don't see any investigative reporting yet on this other than by CBS. This story is just a he said, she said recount. Reporters ought to be able to do so much better than that.
With all of the reporters in the those countries, why has it taken this long for this research to be done, if accurate? If inaccurate, where are the reports by other news organizations correcting the 60 Minutes report? Either way, reporters seem asleep at the switch to me.

Twenty years ago, I started giving speeches on how newspapers needed to come up with a summary of what's in today's paper and send it out by e-mail when the presses started. Few ever did this. Now the New York Times is doing precisely what I had in mind only by daily podcast. What's more, they are doing it very well!!

My hunch is that if we graphed the CNN audience and we graphed the circulation of the Washington Post, for example, CNN would look at lot more volatile than would the Post, but that's a hunch.

We used a technique very similar to this to override President FORD's first veto in office - of a bill to amend the federal Freedom of Information Act in 1974, going on 40 years ago! We made a list of all the Representatives, added the announced intention to vote next to those we had and told the others we'd release the document BEFORE the vote. It worked.
