Republican Congressman Matt Salmon does not support the American military attacking Syria.

According to the Arizona Republic's apparently left-wing columnist, E.J. Montini, that means Salmon's the kind of guy who would watch Jerry Sandusky rape little kids in the shower at Penn State.

Trick question.

Don't bother to submit anything. As of this week, the Republic's community opinion sections no longer exist.

Google tells New Times it's trying to fix the weird appearance of the phrase "Jew York Times" in certain Google News search returns.

We'd emailed the tech giant while reporting the quirk, which a Google spokeswoman told us is a "technical issue."

Someone at Google apparently has a twisted and most decidedly un-PC sense of humor.

Several New York Times articles that are part of an archived-newspaper service Google provided until 2011, contain the phrase "Jew York Times" in search returns.

Now, to the karate studio, where ABC 15 is standing by with relevant opinions on a news story involving Japan.


The editorial staff at ABC 15 will be learning a thing or two about racial sensitivity after the station filmed a segment from Lo-Lo's Chicken and Waffles, where reporters were getting reactions to the verdict in the Trayvon Martin case.

It seemed like out of all the places to find opinions on the case, a chicken and waffles eatery may not have been the best choice, and some people certainly voiced that opinion once the segment ran on TV.

The bloodbath at Gannett Company Inc., over the past 48 hours saw as many as 223 jobs lost, with 29 people reportedly laid off at the Arizona Republic.

Some of those on the list were veteran journalists, including two who had worked for the paper for decades. Another two were refugees from the failed former East Valley Tribune (not to be confused with the namby-pamby local paper of the same name, now owned by a subsidiary of Colorado's Thirteenth Street Media.)

Former Arizona Governor and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.


Readers of the right-wing news-opinion website Breitbart -- founded by the late Andrew Breitbart -- are being led to believe that Arizona's former Democratic governor, Janet Napolitano, signed Arizona's "stand your ground" bill into law.

It's part of Breitbart's narrative that the Democratic politicians who are now complaining about the laws are the ones who enacted them, and that narrative is false, in the case of Arizona.

ABC 15
Later on ABC 15: We go to the kitchen to get a woman's opinion on today's issues, but first, to the bank, where we're standing by with a Jew.


Out of all the places where ABC 15 could have looked for people to interview about their opinions on Trayvon Martin case, it just happened to pick Lo-Lo's Chicken & Waffles.

Perhaps the lighting at the local basketball court wasn't conducive to filming television interviews that night.

We'd known Friday temperatures would break 115 for a some time and that it would be the hottest day of the year up to that point. And as the rest of us planned our weekends or accepted the reality of record-hot days with a shrug, Phoenix's wiliest reporters plotted ways to explain just how hot it would be.

Broadcast news coverage on Friday was both ridiculous, funny, and unnerving. At the least, it was an interesting look at what lengths local TV news outlets will go to grab eyeballs and how shallow their bags of tricks have become.
