Fox's explanation that this was "an honest mistake" is absurd, of course. The suggestion that it was easy to confuse 2010 and 2011 based on the visual similarity of the two podiums is a total fail, as it implies that Fox went eeny-meany to pick 1 of 2 possible clips. Right.

What's more interesting is that Fox felt compelled to address it at all. Ron Paul must have touched a big ole nerve.

And his supporters went nuts...these networks will learn soon enough that there is 1 candidate that you do NOT fuck with or you will be destroyed in response...and that is ron paul of course...he has an army of supporters that numbers in the millions and many of us have our own websites...so Fox News learned first hand that it does not pay to play dirty politics with paul...

Pakistani court rules U.S. consulate employee can't leave the country

http://news.xinhuanet.com/english2010/world/2011-02/17/c_13737179.htm

[snip]

The U.S. State Department has accused Pakistan of not honoring" international laws on diplomatic immunity. But Pakistan's former foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi did not accept that Davis was entitled to claim diplomatic immunity....

.....Attorney General Punjab Khwaja Haris argued that the Vienna Convention also does not give blanket immunity to people involved in heinous crimes.

Very interesting indeed...

"The whistleblower bounty program was created by the Dodd-Frank financial-overhaul law enacted last year. The SEC has until April to finalize implementation rules. Under the law, the SEC offers awards of at least $100,000 and as much as 30% of the penalties and recovered funds to people who report knowledge of a fraud. To qualify for an award, the information must lead to a successful enforcement action with sanctions of at least $1 million."

And therein--"successful enforcement action with SANCTIONS of at least $1 million"--lies the problem.

As we learned from the S.E.C. v. BAC action and Judge Rakoff's opinions on that sorry affair, it is difficult to do justice in a court of law when plaintiff and defendant are complicit, and the action is but a sham for public show.

The S.E.C. is all about appearances, kicking the shit out of American middle class valedictorians like Martha Stewart and Mark Cuban. The S.E.C. has about as much a chance of getting a mil in SANCTIONS is zero, as sanctions presumes an unqualified win.

Ain't gonna happen, ever.

No, I'd say this law has much more to do with identifying troublemakers.

Don't hold your breathe for any bounty money, ask Mark.
