PBS NewsHour syndication

New feed! pbs_newshour , for full text (and usually audio and even video) of the stories on the PBS NewsHour (or as fogies like me call it, "MacNeil/Lehrer"). RSS

As a taste, here's some recent example stories:

  • 100 Years of Flight -- Today marked the 100th anniversary of the Wright brothers' historic first flight near Kitty Hawk, N.C. Kwame Holman reports on the ceremony President Bush attended there today, and Jeffrey Brown looks back on a century of aviation history.
  • Canning Spam -- President Bush signed a bill today that seeks to stop spam from jamming people's e-mail accounts. Margaret Warner asks AOL Vice President Randall Boe and anti-spam activist John Mozena about the effectiveness of this new law
  • Jobs on the Move -- Cost-conscious American companies are increasingly moving high-paying service-sector jobs overseas. Paul Solman reports that this practice, called "outsourcing," has moved many jobs to India
  • Survival Battle -- The presence of salmon in the waterways of the Pacific Northwest have been increasing in recent years, but the Bush administration and some climatologists disagree over who can take the credit. Lee Hochberg reports that what the president says is a success, others call a fish story.
  • Trying Saddam -- The questions of what kind of tribunal, what country and what punishment for Saddam Hussein face the United States and its coalition partners. Ray Suarez discusses the complexities of international justice with American University law professor Diane Orentlicher, Feisal Istrabadi of the Iraqi Forum for Democracy and Paul Van Zyl of the International Center for Transitional Justice.
