The "Jena 6", FBI Tapes Ted Stevens, Raw Politics, And New Bin Laden Tape (Thursday's Show)

Hi everyone. Well, I guess when Anderson Cooper said he'd about had his fill of the OJ story, he wasn't kidding. Soledad O'Brien is occupying the anchor chair tonight. I'm actually not feeling all that bloggy, so this is going to be a really short little post. Plus, I missed the last 15 to 20 minutes of the show because of a viewing and note-taking mishap that involved a pen with dark blue ink, tan pants, and my own stupidity. (Stop laughing!) So if there was OJ crap (and I think there was), I blessedly missed it.

The show started off with the story of the "Jena 6" and it's great to see this story and the issue of racism being talking about in the Mainstream Media (MSM). I had to kind of crack up at David Mattingly's piece on how the story went viral online. Psst, guys, that's where most of the actual news is now. Or are we really supposed to watch three whole days of OJ?

Tonight also contained the Breaking News that the FBI has apparently been eavesdropping on Senator Ted Stevens regarding that public corruption investigation. And there are tapes! The potential for awesomeness is very high here. Unfortunately, the tapes are so far not being made public. Oh, somebody leak them! But, um, only if it won't hurt the case against that jerk. Hmm, will there be an indictment for Christmas this year? We shall see.

We also have Tom Foreman, as always, with the "Raw Politics" and then there's the news of another Bin Laden tape. Do you think he waited until after the OJ stuff died down to release it? Why haven't we caught him, again? Anyway, it is at this point that my viewing ends and my scramble for the Shout bottle begins. It's great to see the news slowly making its way back.

Will Anderson ever show up on a Friday night again? He hasn't done it for weeks now.

@anonymous-I've found that most of the Friday shows are pretty much phoned-in. That's one of the reasons I don't blog them anymore.
