BBC Analyst Charlie Booker shows us how the news media turns non-news into news, and creates epic tales of nothingness while getting an entire nation to stare, slack-jawed at a picture of a closed door for six hours.

Bush Changes Thomas Jefferson's Speech At July 4 Celebration

President Bush was at Monticello for a 4th of July celebration and he delivered an address. But it's quite telling that his speechwriters, in quoting Jefferson, cut out an anti-religious statement from a long and famous quote. Here's the way Bush put it:

Thomas Jefferson understood that these rights do not belong to Americans alone. They belong to all mankind. And he looked to the day when all people could secure them. On the 50th anniversary of America's independence, Thomas Jefferson passed away. But before leaving this world, he explained that the principles of the Declaration of Independence were universal. In one of the final letters of his life, he wrote, "May it be to the world, what I believe it will be -- to some parts sooner, to others later, but finally to all -- the Signal of arousing men to burst the chains, and to assume the blessings and security of self-government."

Now let's look at the full quote, including the part that was cut out...

Montel Williams' psychic pal Sylvia Browne told the family of missing Shawn Hornbeck he was dead shortly after the Missouri boy vanished - and later allegedly offered to help locate his body for $700 per half hour.

The popular TV clairvoyant appeared on the "Montel Williams Show" in February 2003, four months after Shawn disappeared, and told Pam and Craig Akers she believed their son was "no longer with us."

She also advised that his body could be found in a wooded area 20 miles from their Richwoods, Mo., home, near two large jagged boulders.

Shawn, now 15, was found alive and well last Friday, living just miles away with a man now charged with snatching the boy when he was 11.

So, there's a man crawling through the desert.

He'd decided to try his SUV in a little bit of cross-country travel, had
great fun zooming over the badlands and through the sand, got lost, hit a
big rock, and then he couldn't get it started again. There were no cell
phone towers anywhere near, so his cell phone was useless. He had no family,
his parents had died a few years before in an auto accident, and his few
friends had no idea he was out here....

The web site Howstuffworks.com used to be a pretty neat site, until like traditional media they decided to completely eradicate the line between editorial and advertising. In the wake of the next Star Wars movie, they've taken to publishing articles such as How Stuff Works: a Lightsaber. Ok, I can appreciate the humor of the article, but I still think there's something wrong about a science-oriented site tainting their content with viral marketing propaganda.

Is there anything left that hasn't been branded by the team of Star Wars marketing whores?

Western Journalists in Iraq: "Hotel Reporters"

If you're an average person around the world who seeks out various sources for your news and information, in all likelihood, you may know more about Iraq than the western journalists who are there trying to cover the war. It's so dangerous in the area, that most reporters are confined to their hotel, relaying x-hand accounts of events, or even if they manage to get outside, the typical way is via military escort, at which point they're taken to scenes set up specifically for them. Don't expect much from these "Hotel Reporters" unless you're looking for details on the amenities at the Fallujah Hilton.
