— Ace At least now he'll be drawing a check from the correct employer.
More interesting is that this isn't the first CNN staffer to go to Al-Jazeera.

Sounds like a promotion to me.
From CNN who works for Al Jazeera

Al Jazeera is actually more conservative than CNN.

Keith Olbermann is more popular than CNN.

And Fahrenheit 9/11 is the highest-grossing "documentary" ever. What's your point?

what the hell does that mean? Nobody watches MSNBC, does that mean even fewer watch CNN? Does that mean more people are friends with Olbermann the moron than a disembodied network?

The article I read - the one linked by Ace - said her name is Lucia, not Julia, Newman. We'll have another dose of remedial reading over here, please.

Just to clear it up, the correspondents name is Lucia, but she is a she. However there is a "he" that jumped also - Dave Marash, formerly of Nightline, will be their Washington anchor/reporter.

And of course she said that she was "treated well."
Miss Carroll was must be one of those rare gals who is easy to please, easy-going, and not too picky. Any woman who regards being abducted at held captive for a few moths in a third-world environment as good treatment is indeed a rare find and defintitely marriage material. I guess all those videos of Jill weeping and pleading for her life must have been due to PMS and nothing more.
I can hardly wait for the book.

Boy, I sure do. It's funny that you mention it, spurwing. Last night I was thinking about the coverage of the first gulf war. We had two telivisions and four radios going in someone's office - all on, so we could listen to all the news. I remember Bernie Thomas crawling around on the hotel rooftop. It was pretty exciting.
Didn't Arnett become an American citizen? Why bother? I googled him trying to find out and learned that his son-in-law is John Yoo. He was the AG who helped draft the Patriot Act and did a series of memos on torture. I would love to be a fly on the wall at one of their family get togethers. lol!

Hahaha... what is this, an April Fools Joke, Spurwing? Goading somebody into an actual conversation with you!

Don't make me laugh... he's got a devoted web page to his musings!
But... if you can actually understand and converse intelligently with the Spurwing, then who am I to cast dispersions on either of you.

You got it.
