Brian Williams has ruled the roost at "NBC Nightly News" for more than 10 years. Right before he took over, he saw Dan Rather's career go up in flames at CBS over phony National Guard documents marshaled against President Bush.

The Academy Awards is meant to be the world's most prestigious honors for achievement in movies. Politics should have nothing to do with it, but, increasingly, that's not so. Hollywood is now regularly treading beyond "artistic excellence" and letting political overtones sway the outcome.

Hundreds of thousands of protesters descend on Washington every January to "March for Life," protesting the horror of more than a million abortions in America every year.
