A Revived CNN Takes On Fox News and Bill Sammon
There is a big audience of Americans who are not interested in the propagandistic news styling of Fox News. The efforts of Jon Stewart and websites like Media Matters are having an impact. America knows they can’t trust Fox News to deliver the facts, and the biggest beneficiary of this great American awakening could be CNN.

…en Wikipedia had het op geen tijd:


Google News was nergens (‘t is dan ook een aggregator):


CNN was er wél snel bij. Zonder details weliswaar, maar die zijn er nu nog niet, vermoed ik:


Oh, en op deredactie.be hebben ze nog altijd problemen met hun style sheet die voor de accessibility zou moeten zorgen:


Jammer, trouwens, van Heath Ledger. Ik keek enorm uit naar zijn Joker in Dark Knight.

update Zo, een minuut of vijf later, en Wikipedia is al helemaal bij:

According to the New York City Police Department, Heath Ledger was found dead in his apartment in downtown Manhattan on January 22, 2008.[19][20]

At 3:31 p.m., a masseuse arrived at Apartment 5A in the building for an appointment with Mr. Ledger, the police said. The masseuse was let in to the home by a housekeeper, who then knocked on the door of Mr. Ledger’s bedroom. When no one answered, the housekeeper and the masseuse opened the bedroom and found Mr. Ledger unconscious. They shook him, but he did not respond. They immediately called the authorities. The police said they did not suspect foul play and said they found pills near the body.[21]
