    The "Today" show version made shooter George Zimmerman appear to be engaged in racial profiling. NBC News said Saturday it is investigating why its Today show broadcast an edited version of the 911 call placed by George Zimmerman the night he shot and killed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin. Both Today and MSNBC have broadcast an edited version of the call, which makes Zimmerman sound as if he were engaged in racial profiling. "We have launched an internal investigation into the editorial process surrounding this particular story," a spokeswoman for Today told THR Saturday. Last week, Today aired a segment that...

    Every car or truck carries in the glove compartment a maintenance schedule. Having your oil changed, your tires rotated and balanced, and the rest of the engine checked keeps your vehicle in excellent shape. This Wednesday, we begin one of the most practical times of the Catholic liturgical year. Lent provides us an opportunity to open our personal maintenance schedule and take a close look at ourselves as we journey towards eternal life. The spiritual life is not an easy endeavor because of our wounded human nature. True, Baptism washes away original sin, but we do not have complete control...

Among the most masterful temptations of the evil one is to make the killing of a child seem better than the birth of that child. This is the lie that leads each day to thousands of abortions.As we pray, “Lead us not into temptation,” we keep in mind the need to protect all...

    Yet MoreCNNs of Commission, Rapist Demagogues and 9/11   by Mia T, 4/9/99, updated 4/19/03     Sins of omission and commission are not circumscribable... and CNN's shameless revisionist efforts will not make them so. the movie Nothing demonstrates this principle of unboundedness better than the clinton rapes.You will recall that the protectors of the impeached rapist rapidly became the protectors of marauding Milosevic rapist-guerrillas. Had the protectors of the impeached rapist denounced the Milosevic rapists, they would have thrown a monkey wrench into the Senate's show-trial deus ex machina of choice, willful ignorance. And so the rape of Albanian...
