"These people had neither the money, resources or expertise to pull this off."

Then why is it "BREAKING NEWS" all over the teevee, complete with "LIVE NEWS CONFERENCE"?

3 arrested in JFK fuel line terror plot
NEW YORK (AP) — Three people were arrested and one other was being sought Saturday in connection to a plan to set off explosives in a fuel line that feeds John F. Kennedy International Airport and runs through residential neighborhoods, officials close to the investigation said.
The plot, which never got past the planning stages, did not involve airplanes or passenger terminals, according to the two officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the arrests had not yet been announced.

The plot posed no threat to air safety or the public, the FBI said Saturday.

Look at what I just got in my inbox. Doesn't this look more like "BREAKING NEWS" to you?

-- At least 146 German police officers are injured, 25 of them seriously, in clashes with about 2,000 protestors ahead of Group of Eight summit in Rostock, Germany, police spokesman says.

Well, congratulations to our police forces who nipped this in the bud before it could take hold. Keep on doing it.

Before the news conference, which I didn't watch, I said, "This is going to turn out to be another one of those hyped-up, premature bull**** 'breaking news' marathons on behalf of BushCo."

Such crap.

Then I saw the report about the protesters in Germany and my thoughts matched your post. When will "the news" start becoming "the news" again?

Actually, the news conference was taped delayed.
