A discussion of contemporary issues in media ethics, with olives and a twist. Made with only the freshest ingredients, shaken, stirred and poured over ice. I should also mention that I do like the odd, occasional martini. Bombay Sapphire gin and Lillet, dry and plenty of salty olives. Welcome to this cocktail of journalism and alcohol. A fine combination!

McCain Launches Candidacy With Bush Critique - New York Times

Ah, spring has sproinged in the northern hemisphere and eager-beaver presidential candidates in the USA are ramping up their phony election campaigns before the primaries kick off in fall.
It's heartening to know that even Republican old boots like John McCain are campaigning against George "Dubya" Bush.
Let's just hope it does them no good at all. They're all tarred with the same brush.

It's John Stewart speaking with John McCain. The sad thing is that he asks harder questions that McCain has had in years - and the guy is supposed to be a satirist/comedian. I don't know what it says about journalism in America...
