Miss USA, Rima Fakih, the first Arab-American to hold the title, competes in the Miss Universe pageant tonight. Her, ahem, costume, which (the LA times reports) does nothing for world hunger, is a tribute to President Obama's peace initiatives. The President is scheduled to watch a Sox game tonight.

UPDATE: John Amato

The new site design is up. There are plenty of new features that we'll explain a little bit later, but in a few weeks we'll be introducing our own C&L "Diary" section to the site. That means C&L readers will be able to upload your own embeddable videos and write your own posts. It should be quite entertaining and informative. Anyway....enjoy.

Can you help us out?

For 17 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
