FO News Roundup: March 1, 2009

In like a lion, baby! Let's get started:
  • Remember when Newsweek demonized Sarah Palin by showing a close-up of her face on the cover? Well Fox News just struck a counter-blow for conservatives on their home page!

    I mean, look at those wrinkles! (M)
  • The new Microsoft Office won't be released until 2010. Which means it won't be fit for consumption until 2012. (P)
  • A Tibetan monk sets himself on fire, and a Chinese policeman shoots him. 'Nuff said, right? (P)
  • Welcome back to $25,000 Pyramid. Let's get started with our first clue: homophobia, attacks on Hollywood . . . Oh! Things Iran's Theocracy and the Religious Right Have in Common! Ding-ding-ding! (P)
  • He came on the radio every morning, while my father drove me to school. And he'd sign off all of his broadcasts with "Paul Harvey — [extended pause] — good day." I like to think I know what his last words were. (P)
  • Iran "not close" to nuclear weapon; all materials at Natanz under control; US fears that Iran has material to build a nuclear bomb; Iran close to building nuke; Iran may have "enough material" to build nuclear bomb; Iran has enough material to make nuclear bomb; Iran can make a bomb; ran the headlines today. Everybody clear? Everybody confident? (M)
