Not really. From what I recall when I was abroad, you're still getting the primetime "shows" and talking heads like Blitzer and Anderson Cooper and Larry King, the difference is that you have an international news version at different times during the day rather than just American news.

The international news shows on CNN are actually considerably better than the American ones. If I'm not mistaken, they're run out of London, and are pretty good. Unfortunately in Canada we get the US version only.

He has about as much foreign policy experience as she does, then.

Yes, there’s definitely that difference – we get Cooper/Blitzer/King etc, but the actual news broadcasts come out of London and (sometimes) Hong Kong. Some are brief updates (they’re on the hour, every hour), and a few times a day there’s the big half hour or hour long global run down + a few other Asia/Europe focused shows. I just wasn’t sure if in the US they are pretty much the same thing, just out of New York or wherever. Really disappointing if they’re not. Fox don’t actually show news at all, just really 5 stories + 5 talking points that get recycled through every single show all day, so if US CNN aren’t really doing proper national and global news either, its little wonder there’s such ignorance.

There aren't enough eye-rolls to convey my feelings about this:

You might have seen Newsweek's latest cover of Sarah Palin. If you haven't, take a look. The left's blatant bias has crept from within its pages onto the cover shot. The latest Newsweek cover shows a magnified, purposefully unretouched photo of Sarah Palin that highlights every imperfection on her beautiful face. Women will understand this. We're talking unwanted facial hair, wrinkles, and un-extracted pores. Heck, we all have them. We just don't expect them to be showcased on the cover of a national magazine, especially when we are running for the position of second in command of the United States. Calling it unflattering is an understatement. Trust me.

Andrea Tantaros (she's a GOP media consultant and was interviewed on Fox News about this)

I'm sorry, I thought she was a real down-to-earth person .... just like us! You mean she shouldn't be shown to have wrinkles, blemishes, or *gasp* a hair on her upper lip?

Give me a freaking break. She claims they portrayed Obama on the cover in all his shining glory. But look! He looks good and real here - wrinkles and pockmarks and the whole shebang.

Here's the Newsweek cover in question:

Now, tell me - are any of you just reeling in horror of the shocking discovery that Sarah Palin ... has pores??? I mean, honestly. She looks fine and there is nothing wrong with that picture.

I agree there's nothing intrinsically nasty about a closeup, and you're right, Obama's complexion looks just as realistically middle-aged-imperfect in that profile photo you linked to. It does seem to me though like that cut-in-half effect (on the new Palin cover) may be at least partially intended to suggest the impression of a sneer.

Was this a posed photo? I know the earlier cover they had of her (the one where she's holding a shotgun) was actually a stock photo.

I can see that cropping effect portraying more of a *wink*, which has become one of her trademarks.

I think the more ridiculous part of the complaint about the cover is that the headline reads "She's One of the Folks." Wouldn't you think that an unretouched picture should naturally go along with that headline?

Trooper-Gate Report Finds Palin Abused Power in Firing Monegan
By Zachary Roth - October 10, 2008, 8:42PM

The just-released Trooper-Gate report finds that Sarah Palin abused her power in the firing of Walt Monegan, by violating an Alaska law holding that "each public officer holds office as a public trust, and any effort to benefit a personal or financial interest through official action is a violation of that trust."

It also finds that Monegan's "refusal to fire Trooper Mike Wooten" -- who was embroiled in a family dispute with the Palins -- "was not the sole reason [Monegan] by Governor Sarah Paln" but "it was likely a contributing factor". Still, the firing was a proper exercise of Palin's authority to hire and fire executive branch department heads.

In addition, the report found that the office of Attorney General Talis Colberg failed to substantially comply with the legislature's written request for information about the case in the form of emails.
I don't understand- I thought Sarah Palin cleared herself.

No, she didn't. The McCain campaign published a report the day before saying she'd done nothing wrong. But the official report states that she did violate the Alaska ethics code. It's extremely unlikely she's being impeached for this though (which is apparently a theoretical possibility).
