Let's Play San Francisco Hide-a-Torch!

Bill Radke

1. In San Francisco, thousands of people came out to see the running of the Olympic torch. And they got nothing -- the mayor secretly changed the torch relay route. He says it was to maintain safety, but anti-China demonstrators say it thwarted their First Amendment right to protest. Was this torch hide-and-seek good news, bad news or no news?

2. The president of the Formula One auto racing federation has been urged to resign. A British tabloid released a videotape of Max Mosley's participation in what the tabloid called a "depraved Nazi sadomasochistic orgy." Mosley says there was nothing Nazi about it -- the women wore American-style prison uniforms, and he was counting his lashes in German because the women were German. Is this affair good news, bad news or no news?

3. Wal-Mart recently fired its video production company. The company has replaced that lost revenue by selling footage of Wal-Mart's internal board meetings. One group used footage of male managers parading in drag to criticize Wal-Mart's attitude toward female employees. Is this production company's scheme good news, bad news or no news
