Media Alert - State of the Union


President Barack Hussein Obama will be giving his
first State of the Union Message.


Tuesday, February 24, 2009, 9 pm EST, we will hear the following:

"MADAM Speaker, The President of the United States."


I admit. It's going to be a goosebump moment for me.
MADAM Speaker isn't old to me yet.

Just wanted to inform everyone that Rupert Murdoch has now issued a very public apology for the controversial cartoon:

"The Buck Stops With Me"
Huffington Post Feb. 24, 2009

Rupert Murdoch released a statement in the pages of the NY Post on Tuesday, saying in part, "I am ultimately responsible."

Murdoch was responding to the uproar after last week's controversial stimulus cartoon, for which the paper had already semi-apologized.

The statement in full:

As the Chairman of the New York Post, I am ultimately responsible for what is printed in its pages. The buck stops with me.
Last week, we made a mistake. We ran a cartoon that offended many people. Today I want to personally apologize to any reader who felt offended, and even insulted.

Over the past couple of days, I have spoken to a number of people and I now better understand the hurt this cartoon has caused. At the same time, I have had conversations with Post editors about the situation and I can assure you - without a doubt - that the only intent of that cartoon was to mock a badly written piece of legislation.

It was not meant to be racist, but unfortunately, it was interpreted by many as such.

We all hold the readers of the New York Post in high regard and I promise you that we will seek to be more attuned to the sensitivities of our community.
