His mom says he has an alibi, but since he is being held under the Patriot act, she can't even defend or see him.

*stares at the non-functional video window*
This is a local news broadcaster, right?
They do closed-captioning, right?
Why can't they post the closed-captioning as an ersatz transcription?

A fascinating tale of a true hacker ... the mechanical engineering equivalent of a cryptanalyst.

I first came across John Coster-Mullen’s name in January of 2004, after I attended an exhibit by the artist Jim Sanborn (*, *, *, *, *, *, *, *), at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, in Washington, DC.

Coster-Mullen’s research project can be construed as a danger to mankind or as a useless antiquarian endeavor. As maddening as his personality can be, it is hard to imagine what America would look like without the small and shrinking number of people who engage in painstaking, firsthand research in order to separate the truth from the body of supposed facts, and who keep the rest of us honest. A corollary of this insight, of course, is that much of what we think we know is wrong.

Bill O'Reilly on Sarah Palin email hack - Boing Boing
Topic: Current Events 2:34 pm EDT, Sep 20, 2008

Looks like Bill O'Reilly skipped the First Amendment section of Journalism 101. He thinks owners of websites that posted Sarah Palin's hacked emails should be prosecuted along with the hacker who broke into her account. When a Fox news anchor attempts to explain why the websites can't be prosecuted, he refuses to accept it, arguing back with bad analogies, which the news anchor handily demolishes. It's fun to watch.

Watching Miss Kelly argue based on a reasonably correct interpretation of the facts is nice. Watching Mr. O'Reilly arguing back is not nice.
I get the impression that Mr. O'Reilly is intentionally missing the point in order to make a bigger show... kinda like Steven Colbert.
