A Busy Day on Articles: update on Paliwood fall out

We've had so much breaking news and important matters on blog and press items on Articles that perhaps it's a good idea to catalog them:

Just in: Augean Stables reporting on the verdict in the much exploited al Dura/Paliwood case.

Pajamas Media: Karsenty: "French Court Vindicates al-Dura Hoax critic"

In a stunning reversal, a French appeals court today dismissed France 2's defamation charges against Philippe Karsenty in the controversial Mohammed al-Dura case. (...) Our victory today was a victory for freedom (...) The al-Dura lie is an assault on our ability to think, to criticize, to evaluate, and finally to reject information (...) polls conducted in Europe have identified Israel as the greatest threat to world peace, greater than Iran and North Korea, Pakistan and Syria. The al-Dura hoax is one of the pillars on which these assumptions rely (...) One need only look at France 2’s own footage to realize that the “death” scene was faked. (...)

It’s the responsibility of the French government and, ultimately, the responsibility of the French president, Nicolas Sarkozy — who is, for all practical purposes, the chief executive of French public television — to finally reveal the truth.

Philippe Karsenty is the founder and president of Media-Ratings, an agency that closely monitors French media outlets for anti-American and anti-Israeli bias.

A number of old tots still want a finger in the EU financial pie. Also the first Rousseau clarion call of this year ... the gap between rich and poor is growing (of course: it's the natural state of the universe since 1712 - we will keep tally).

On the day it was disclosed that Israel and Syria are holding peace talks, the German postmodern English language website Signandsight experiences a paradigm shift in its standards of objectivity (in the classical sense of the word) by carrying an article by exiled Iraqi writer Najem Wali:
