Connected Today

Thanks to Ian at The Political Teen who put up the video from my Connected Communities appearance today on MSNBC's Connected Coast to Coast. It's a 90 second or so report on what stories the blogosphere is covering. Today the topics were (of course) Terri Schiavo, specifically, what to do with her remains. The featured blog was Civil Commotion; Prozac and the Red Lake Shootings and TalkLeft's take on it; and pharmacists who refuse to distribute contraceptives to women, featuring TBogg's post (permalink not working, but it's at the top of the page.)

Update: In the segment on Terri Schiavo, I used Civil Commotion as an example of a site that contained the allegations against Michael Schiavo and information related to the Catholic Church and burial. What I missed was that the blog was disagreeing with the Schiavo allegations and correcting the false impression that the Catholic Church does not allow cremation. In an e-mail, Mr. Felton from Civil Commotion states that he was ridiculing the allegations and correcting the false information about the Church. My mistake, I read it too fast, too close to airtime. My sincere apologies to Mr. Felton. He, like me, was pointing out the ugly accusations surrounding the case, and was not in any way endorsing them.

In another non-blog segment, we talked about the Michael Jackson ruling allowing evidence from the 1993 and other accusers to come in at the current trial. Ron and Monica have a great show going, at noon and 5pm ET weekdays. If you haven't seen it yet, be sure to tune in.

    It turns out the autopsy is another fake story from the people opposing Mrs. Schiavo's last wishes. There has never been any question that an autopsy would be done.
