"Hey, hey, hey, hey. How many people died today"

Ok, Newsweek. (and your parent, Wash. Post). We we subjected to those idiotic, childish "Hey, hey, what'ya say..." chants from the anti-war drones over the past year. Will the newsweekly become the new fodder for these whines?

Naw, probably not.

Will dirty, dingy, unbathed students and Hippie throwback wannabes hold up signs across the street from Newsweek's offices, or stage sit-ins in the corporate lobby.

Doubt it.

But if it was any other type of American company that put out such a defective product, you can be the worldwide commie, peacenik army would be out in force.

If Newsweek made widgets, or SUV tires, or chemicals, or bowls of chilli, it would be the target of some trial lawyer somewhere. And the lawsuits would follow. And the jury verdicts would be requested. And the Lawyers would take their 30% to 50%.

Wonder what the press would do if they had to live by the same standards that most businesses had to endure when it comes to "product liability."
