Gray Skies Ahead?

Now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine:

A sharply critical profile of Jayson Blair case and the Valerie Plame leak investigation will lead to The Times' downfall.

Ken Auletta questions whether Sulzberger has what it takes to run the Gray Lady and ridicules everything from his humor to his manners. But in the eyes of openly-gay veteran journalist Charles Kaiser, who is quoted in the piece, Sulzberger is a trail blazer in one sense transforming The Times newsroom from what Kaiser calls the most homophobic institution in America to the most gay-friendly.

On the Bright Side

Despite looming concerns over security, the majority of Iraqis are optimistic about the future, according to a new survey released today by the John Seigenthaler to the 35th president's assassination and that of his brother has finally been removed from the Wikipedia Web site. A Nashville man, Brian Chase has apologized for posting the false information about Seignethaler, a prominent Tennessee newspaperman who was also a Kennedy adviser.

The information was inserted into Seigenthaler's biography on Wikipedia, which calls itself an online encyclopedia, but is in fact an open site in which anyone can enter false information anonymously and factual errors abound. Chase said he was unaware the site was taken seriously when he posted the bogus information as a joke last May. Seigenthaler didn't find out about it until recently and it was not removed until Seigenthaler complained in an article in USA Today.
