(The Atlantic Wire)
Fri, 31 Dec 2010 00:29:00 GMT
The Atlantic Wire - Joe Scarborough says he might seek public office again if he sees an "absence of leadership," Parade's David Browne
reports. That would be his second tour as a public servant for the
MSNBC host, who was a Florida congressman in the 1990s. Scarborough says
his wife won't let him reenter the "blood sport" of politics, he might
have to lobby her to reconsider "if Washington continues to fumble

Obama Ex-Car Czar Will Pay $10M for Pay-to-Play Scandal
(The Atlantic Wire)
Thu, 30 Dec 2010 21:55:40 GMT
The Atlantic Wire - Just ahead of New Years Eve (and before he's headed to the governor's mansion), New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo settled
his pay-to-play suit with former "car czar" Steven Rattner. Rattner was
accused of bribing a member of New York's state comptroller in exchange
for the state pension fund doing business with Rattner's private equity
firm, Quadrangle Group. One of those kickbacks allegedly
won Quadrangle a $150 million pension fund investment. Under the terms
of the announced settlement, Cuomo will pay $10 million to the state of
New York, quite a bit less than the $26 million Cuomo sought. "I
am gratified that we have been able to reach an agreement in this case,
as it resolves the last major action of our multi-year investigation,"
Cuomo said. Rattner did not admit to any wrongdoing. He said, merely, "I
apologize if during the course of this process there is anything I did
that may have made reaching this agreement more difficult."
Skype Brings Free Video Calling to iPhone

Thu, 30 Dec 2010 21:49:26 GMT
The Atlantic Wire - Eons from now, historians will divide human civilization into three
distinct periods: the hunter-gatherer era before the agrarian
revolution of 10,000 B.C., the "Dark Ages" from then through now, and the
new epoch we enter today as Skype announces its iPhone app, which will
allow free video phone calls. iPhone owners can use Skype, an
Internet-based free video phone service, to call other iPhone owners who
have Skype. To announce its new product, Skype has produced a YouTube video of a man dancing in his underwear. Currently, tech blog aggregator site Techmeme only lists 84 tech sites and blogs
covering the story, but we assume that number will skyrocket once news
of The Revolution spreads throughout the world. Here's what a few of
those 84 tech writers are saying.
Moshe Katsav, Former President of Israel, Convicted of Rape
(The Atlantic Wire)
Thu, 30 Dec 2010 21:24:46 GMT
The Atlantic Wire - On Thursday, Moshe Katsav, who served as the president of Israel from 2000 to 2007, was convicted on two counts of rape in a Tel Aviv court. Katsav was found guilty of raping an employee while serving as the minister of tourism in the late '90s, as well as sexually abusing another woman and harassing a third. The accusations against Katsav first surfaced in 2006, and ultimately led to his resignation. Here's a look at the early reactions to Thursday's verdict in Israel and elsewhere.
Afternoon Vid: Cenk Uygur Compares Sarah Palin to Michael Vick
(The Atlantic Wire)
Thu, 30 Dec 2010 21:11:35 GMT
The Atlantic Wire - By now, you may have heard that Tucker Carlson hosted a Fox News panel where he remarked that Michael Vick "should've been executed"
for his involvement in a dogfighting ring. While the comment generated a
significant amount of debate, no one weighed in on the statement in
quite the same way MSNBC host Cenk Uygur did. In his
"Psycho Talk" segment, Uygur had no problem comparing Vick's systematic and repeated torture of dogs with Sarah Palin's shooting of a caribou while hunting on her reality TV show."I know there's a difference, but is it really that large?" Uygur asks, after showing the entire clip
of Palin gunning down the animal. "Sarah Palin is folksy for killing a caribou who was clearly trapped and defenseless if you watch that show,
and Michael Vick should be executed? I don't think so," he confirms. There's some pretty forceful rhetoric about Christians and retribution in there, too. Have a look:[H/T: Glynnis MacNichol at Business Insider]

(The Atlantic Wire)
Thu, 30 Dec 2010 20:09:13 GMT
The Atlantic Wire - As every critic knows, it's important to praise, but more fun to pan. The last two weeks of 2010 have seen the customary flurry of late-December best-of lists, singling out all that was ambitious, skillful, and moving about the arts this year. However, a few critics have also taken the time to dwell on the lazy, the self-important, and the stupid. Here, the Wire presents the worst of the worst: the movies, songs, and TV shows that topped the critics' Most Terrible lists.
