I have to say that I've been interviewed by three US networks (not Fox because they didn't give a rat's patootie about an environmental disaster in the USA), ARD (The German Public TV), and talked with any number of print media types, and Al Jazeera was as accurate as any of them. I was not misquoted in the least by any of the international media. The US media were incomplete at best, disingenuous at the most obvious. Therefore I welcome Al Jazeera to Tennessee. I'll change my mind in a heartbeat if I see them mess up or slant their reporting.

From the RCN:
“You can no longer give a raise based on years of experience or degrees,” he said. “I don’t approve of it. I don’t know of any other profession that you don’t get a raise for increasing your experience or your degrees.”

This is more than interesting. The Washington Post has a book length story up on the three peace activists who penetrated Oak Ridge security and got into the most sensitive area of the nuclear reservation.
