Wired News Pulls Freelancer's Stories

And this is what we know about....

More fake, but accurate bullshit from the editorial backrooms of media conglomerates.

Wired used to be great. Now, it's an unfocused mess -- a dogmatic, Humanistic, agenda-driven, sex-obsessed version of NYT. (Because if there is one thing the Internet lacks, it's sex.)
Read Engadget instead.

If you believe even half of what major media offers, you're an idiot.

One thing I like about your posts is your generosity of spirit. Granting Mass Media Podpeople a _potential_ 50% believability index is going beyond bounds, though.

Isn't 3% a more realistic figure?

According to Richard Armitage, who served as Deputy Secretary of State in Bush’s first term—and who, in 2002, said that Hezbollah “may be the A team of terrorists”—Israel’s campaign in Lebanon, which has faced unexpected difficulties and widespread criticism, may, in the end, serve as a warning to the White House about Iran. “If the most dominant military force in the region—the Israel Defense Forces—can’t pacify a country like Lebanon, with a population of four million, you should think carefully about taking that template to Iran, with strategic depth and a population of seventy million,” Armitage said. “The only thing that the bombing has achieved so far is to unite the population against the Israelis.”
