Drudge Posted Friday October 27, 2006 at 12:23 PM
Matt Drudge reports that NBC, in a sudden attack of conscience, has refused to run ads for "Shut Up And Sing," the rockumentary-turned-sociopolitical-exegesis that follows the Dixie Chicks before, during and after singer Natalie Maines' infamous anti-Bush statements at a London concert in 2003. According to reports, the network stated that it "cannot accept these spots as they are disparaging to President Bush." --you have to finish reading this article NOW--
O'Reilly's Big Lie on Letterman
by: Cenk Uygur
Bill O'Reilly at one point in his face off with David Letterman attempted to stump Letterman and prove Iraq had ties to terrorism by sighting Ansar al-Islam. According to O'Reilly, Ansar al-Islam was a terrorist group tied to al-Qaeda who was in Iraq before the war working with Saddam Hussein. Of course, it's a lie. --you have to finish reading this article NOW--

::: "Nicole Richie has decided to undergo diagnostic treatment to determine why she's not been putting on any weight," her rep tells PEOPLE in a statement.
"She is working with a team of doctors and specialists whose focus is nutrition. It is important to Nicole that she achieves this goal in a healthy way as this is not a treatment for an eating disorder."
She's tired of everyone saying you don't eat, because she does," a source close to Richie tells PEOPLE. "She wants to gain weight. It wasn't anyone saying you have to go do this, it wasn't an intervention. It was her saying I'm tired of people saying this about me, I'm going to go get some tests. It was a personal decision." :::
perhaps someone could take the time to enlighten me... what is heroin thin's aversion to just admitting that she's bulemic with an anorexic back? is this a non-jew thing?
can't she see the fringe benefits? she's one semicolon away from becoming a lifetime television for women real story. she's thin. she's not addicted to ham and mayonnaise laced sandwiches. men still want to fuck her and who wouldn't want to be the new, "what to eat" teen poster child?!
is this a waiting game to see which publisher will offer her the most money for her exclusive life story that she can of course, "write"?
I will say this, the lengths she's going to, to spin the, I don't have a food issue, yarn are pretty god damn elaborate and funny. since when does it take a team of nutritionists to deduct that you're either an anoleem or thyroid challenged?!
let's face it, she just doesn't want to become a fat girl shunned again. what KILLS ME about this is that she was never fat to begin with. she was a beautiful girl.
what is so wrong with not being translucent thin?! why are woman's curves the anti-christ? I have met women (especially in los angeles), who have admitted that in order to stay ticonderoga pencil thin, they only allow themselves to eat once EVERY OTHER day. that is sick and wrong on several if not all levels. between the award winning, I-hit-a-deer facelifts and the rampant starvation practices, women are teaching pre-teen and teen girls how to hate and kill themselves. it's disgusting and devastatingly sad. it's also just obscenely ignorant and irresponsible.
I have heard women call other women who are painfully thin, fat. I have heard men say to their super skinny girlfriends, "you're getting fat."
the whole thing just makes me want to scream, STOP. JUST STOP IT. knock it the fuck off. grow a set ... of ovaries. fuck him. fuck her.
the choices that we make today could very well shape our 10 or 20-year tomorrows. isn't that worth, at the very least, a second thought.
