By the Way, Florida appeals court says news media lies and distortions are not illegal -
"March 13, 2003—If you've ever suspected that when you tune into TV news programs you're not getting all the facts, then give yourself a pat on the back for being right, because a Florida Court of Appeals has recently ruled that lying and distortion of the truth by the media isn't in fact illegal..."

This is a UK site where the orthodox views of the mainstream media are being questioned -- "Media Workers Against War":
"The best global source on the web for anti-war news, views and updates on the international peace movement - updated daily."
Published on Wednesday, March 26, 2003 by Reuters Group: Iraq TV Raid May Break Geneva Convention
"BRUSSELS - The head of the world's biggest journalists' organization said a U.S. bomb and missile attack on Iraqi television on Wednesday was an attempt at censorship and may have breached the Geneva Conventions."
Here and there:
"U.S. troops in Iraq detained two Israeli journalists and Portuguese colleague on suspicion of espionage and beat one of them, relatives said Friday. They were released after 48 hours.

The journalists, Dan Scemama, of Channel One Television and Boaz Bismuth of the Yedioth Aharonoth entered Iraq without proper accreditation. Scemama said earlier in the week that he had been denied accreditation because he represented Israeli television."
Also see The National Union of Journalist's:
"The killing of veteran ITN reporter Terry Lloyd is "a terrible tragedy that must be investigated", the NUJ said today"

Leave it to Jeb Bush's state to make it law... "it's not illegal to swindle the public". Unbelievable.

Much as the hullaballoo over the lies in the build up to gulf II is raging, will someone, somewhere, release those members of the Iraqi regime still under detention? Could some, somewhere offer up apologies for building up a wave of hatred that led to the illegal war against Iraq? Could someone, somewhere (and somewhen) offer up words of encouragement to those heavily vilified world leaders like Chirac and Schroeder who stoutly refused to be inveigled into the most colossal fiasco of this young century?
