Ed Morrissey / Captain's Quarters:
Sanchez' Message  —  It seems that half of the message retired General Richard Sanchez intended to deliver missed the cut at most newsrooms, and with most bloggers.  Typical among the reports of his blistering oration is the front-page treatment given by the Washington Post's Josh White …
Hindrocket / Power Line:
A TREE FALLS IN THE FOREST  —  If the Bush administration gets attacked, the press will report it.  But what if someone attacks the press?  If the attack goes unreported, did it ever really happen?  —  Today General Ricardo Sanchez gave a speech to the Military Reporters and Editors' annual conference …
Bruce Kesler / Democracy Project:
MSM Omits Sanchez' Criticism Of MSM (Roggio Replies)  —  Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez' speech and Q&A session at the Military Reporters & Editors convention has unleashed a whirl of major media coverage and commentary.  (See Memeorandum, for examples.)  All are focused on his criticism …
Kevin Drum / Washington Monthly:
SANCHEZ AND THE PRESS....Matt Yglesias takes note of former Lt. Gen. Rick Sanchez's Friday blast at everyone but himself over our failure in Iraq, but then says: … Actually, not quite.  It's true that Sanchez didn't pretend that things are going well in Iraq, but he actually spent the entire …

Bob Herbert / New York Times:
The Trivial Pursuit  —  Yesterday began with the gratifying news that Al Gore, derided by George H.W. Bush as the "Ozone Man," had won the Nobel Peace Prize.  —  The first thing media types wanted to know was whether this would prompt Mr. Gore to elbow his way into the presidential campaign.
Bjorn Lomborg / Boston Globe:
An inconvenient Peace Prize  —  THIS YEAR'S Nobel Peace Prize justly rewards the thousands of scientists of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.  These scientists are engaged in excellent, painstaking work that establishes exactly what the world should expect from climate change.
Jonathan Chait / Los Angeles Times:

Aides immunized before NASCAR race  —  LIKE THIS STORY?  —  Going to a NASCAR race?  Better get your shots.  —  That's the message Rep. Robin Hayes seems to think is being sent as a handful of congressional aides were told to get immunized before a fact-finding trip for a House Homeland Security Committee.

Former CEO Says U.S. Punished Phone Firm  —  Qwest Feared NSA Plan Was Illegal, Filing Says  —  A former Qwest Communications International executive, appealing a conviction for insider trading, has alleged that the government withdrew opportunities for contracts worth hundreds of millions …
The Corner:
Thy Will Be Done  —  Good Catholics support government-run health care, or at least the expansion of SCHIP, say some activists in Detroit—and it sure sounds like the archdiocese office is egging them on:
Gregg Krupa / Detroit News:
Catholics target three over 'life issue'  —  They say congressmen need to support child health insurance plan; ad, e-mail campaign to start.  —  Some Catholics in Metro Detroit are organizing a media and Internet blitz against three local members of Congress, saying the representatives' stand …

Ezra Klein:
Andrew Sullivan and "Honesty"  —  If Andrew Sullivan wants to compare honesty, then let's have at it.  I have never, not once, written or published anything I believed to have been untrue.  I have never, not once, allowed being "provocative" to stand in for being rigorous, or honest.  Has Sullivan?

Fred Barnes / Weekly Standard:
The Speech He Needs to Give  —  Giuliani and social conservatives.  —  Rudy Giuliani has a problem.  It's bigger than he imagines and could doom his presidential prospects.  The problem is his pro-choice position on abortion.  It's one he cannot finesse by simply saying he "would keep the balance exactly where it is now."
Investor's Business Daily:
Sharia By The Inch  —  Islamofascism: In a monumental nod to political correctness, the Empire State Building is to be lit up green in honor of the Muslim holiday Eid.  The separation of Islam from terror is officially complete.  —  Six years ago, Islamic terrorists screamed "Allah is Greatest! …
