The Continued CNN Folllies

Every time I see Peter Arnett on CNN I scratch my head in wonderment that this bizarre individual, already fired by NBC, is still on the air. Well, that’s CNN, I suppose. Now Arnett, in a Playboy interview, is promulgating a “scoop” that Uday was about to overthrow father Saddam when the Americans invaded. Should we believe him? Sure, if we have IQs in the low 90s. But more important, Playboy must be really desperate to interview this guy. Are their circulation figures that bad?
