Column: Blame Syria!

(04/15/03 4:00am)

Three cheers for the men and women of the United States Armed Forces, who made quick work of Iraq and have brought an end to the regime of Saddam Hussein. As more information creeps out from the front, we find out about the atrocities of Hussein's government: oppression, torture and massacre. In a New York Times guest column, a CNN news director wrote about some of the stories that CNN could not tell over the past decade because reporting the story would have resulted in the swift torture or murder of the source, and likely the source's family.

MTV's behind-the-scenes docu-sitcom, The Osbournes, is making a toilet-splash with its portrayal of legendary rocker Ozzy Osbourne and his misfit family--and television copycats are sure to follow. If we had it our way, here's what you could look forward to in the months to come:

Death to Williams!

(04/04/02 5:00am)
