Friday night is a good time to watch the news. Its very simple to understand why. Washington likes to bury important stories on friday because less people watch the news on friday. So what interesting stories went by the majority of people on this friday.
Rove's aide resigns over Abramoff
No surprise to see a story that links the White House to Jack Abramoff and in particular Karl Rove here. Any ideas why this story would come out on friday late afternoon?
Marines throw Iraqi in a hole and shoot him
Another late afternoon on a friday story. What does the story do? It makes the war effort in Iraq look bad. Not that it doesn't already look bad but these guys try anything.
Finally this story came out early on friday and it is not a hidden story, it is a curious story to say the least. Perhaps the hippies knew something after all. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.
