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:

The Washington Post's war on Gore  —  In my post on the decision by Justice Burton to allow the showing of An Inconvenient Truth because it was "broadly accurate" I listed some of the reporters who wrongly claimed that the judge decided that AIT had nine errors.  Mary Jordan's story was particularly bad.
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.

UNFIT TO PRINT?  —  Every major daily paper in New York took note of President Bush's deci sion to bestow the first Medal of Honor of Operation Enduring Freedom on Navy SEAL Lt. Michael Murphy - a Long Islander who gave his life for his country and his fellow SEALs.  —  Every paper but one, that is.
Lisa Zagaroli / Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
GOP outraged over NASCAR-immunizations advisory  —  Washington — Being around NASCAR fans requires no inoculation.  —  That was the word Thursday from Republican officials after they learned that a congressional committee's Democratic staffers had advised aides to get vaccinated for hepatitis …
Robert Stacy McCain / Washington Times:
S-CHIP de-Frosted  —  A Volvo SUV, a Chevy Suburban and a Ford F-250 may finally bring to an end a long and bitter flame-war between conservative and liberal bloggers over the S-CHIP veto.  Michelle Malkin explains, the blogger chorus joins in, and Don Surber sums it up in a song: … The background:

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."

Analysts Find Israel Struck a Nuclear Project Inside Syria  —  Israel's air attack on Syria last month was directed against a site that Israeli and American intelligence analysts judged was a partly constructed nuclear reactor, apparently modeled on one North Korea has used to create its stockpile …
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?
