Unbelievable: The New York Times and The Washington Post are teaming up together to-ask people to give them a hand sifting through the 24,000 emails from the Palin administration. The Washington Post posted a simple questionnaire and the commenters are mad. Mad for the obvious:
- This is the media that won’t sift through Senator Barack Obama‘s emails;
- They lack the fairness in analyzing these emails and can set up the general public to blame if there’s any “mistakes” from their analysis;
- The people want to see and care to see what’s really going on in the country and are now aware of the media’s hatred for Sarah Palin;
- This same media won’t team up for a thorough vetting process for Obama’s re-election–which is what they want, anyways.
- Any volunteers won’t be paid nor receive any remuneration for their homework, and the time taken for these folks to do the work that these two so-called “newspapers” won’t do.
- There’s the creepiness factor about handing over thousands of emails to total strangers who may know or not know about legal process, government sessions/proceedings, office work, oil industry negotiations and any other information that should concern the people of Alaska.
In the meantime, these watchdogs will sit and continue to sit on important and vital information that must be released to the public. America is waking up very slowly; they want the White House examined with the attention and details of a proctologist. Take an issue, investigate it and report findings without skewing said issue. Journalism 101, folks.
Journalism is dead in America-now people have to work from The Washington Times and The New York Times, gratis-because things are so bad right now, that they need extra staff in their offices to cover President Obama’s tracks.

The Japan earthquake version of the tool currently lists about 5,500 records, but the number is rising quickly as news about the catastrophe spreads around the world. Although the tool can be useful for finding information about a friend or a loved one, Google warns users that it doesn’t review or verify the accuracy of the data. Furthermore, all data entered will be available to the public, as well as viewable and usable by everyone.
Google’s Crisis Center also shows a map of the earthquake, the latest related news and lists link to warning centers, disaster bulletin boards, and train and blackout information.
The Google Crisis Center is available here, but it also shows up on top of searches for “Japan earthquake” and similar phrases. During these times of disaster, it’s good to see Google taking swift action and leveraging its vastly popular search engine to help people cope and find information.
