Hoaxes Everywhere:

The wonderfully convenient subway hoax doesn't need much comment. If you want to read more, here is a link.

The U2, "Newsmax" story is a great example of spin. Check out the dissection at Daily Kos. I'm a newbie and now know that "Newsmax" is not to be trusted. The African advocacy group created by Bono issued the following today:

"WASHINGTON, Oct. 11 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The following is a statement by Jamie Drummond, executive director of DATA (debt AIDS trade Africa), the Africa advocacy group co-founded by Bono:"Throughout the U2 tour, politicians from both sides have been organizing fundraisers at the venues or around specific shows. Neither DATA or Bono are involved in these and they cannot be controlled. The U2 concerts are categorically not fundraisers for any politician -- they are rock concerts for U2 fans."(c) DATA, 2005.

So......relieved. I love U2!!!!!!
