Back to Quizzin...

Long time since I did some quizing. This sunday, Raju and I, went and took part in KQA's centennial celebrations - General Quiz, a quiz which I attended after a long time. Though we made 21 out of a possible 44(Thanks to Raju), where the cut-off was 30, we thought that was a decent performance. The finals was awesome as usual with the chennai team taking the honors. I ve Got to conduct a Dumb-C in office as well sometime in the next few weeks. So working towards that.
Jus started my week by watching some Jon Stewart's Daily show videos. The best way to start your day is by watching Daily Show at your workplace :-o). I also noticed that none of mainstream media in the US is covering the leak of Downing Street memos on the Iraq War. I looked for it in NYT, WP but in vain. I hope there is an enquiry into this and the press gets to it. I would like to see the press exposing the dirt and scam behind the Iraq War plans. Well..Lemme get back to my Daily Show videos and then maybe work a little bit today. hehe...

I doubt if the US media will ever report anything 'dirty' on the war or anything that will reflect badly on themselves. Remember the China & airplane fiasco in 2001...the US media never reported that Bush actually apologised...

It is not as if its the media's mistake? Downing Street memos indicate that US govt wanted the proof in such a way that they can take out Saddam whether or not he had the capability to strike anybody. They fooled their countrymen into the war and the entire world too. Isnt it the same US Media that reported the wrong doings of the White House in the Whitewater Scandal? What happ to the ethics of Journalism? Why are they like a puppy dog wagging thier tail to the tunes of the White House now?
