Today's Top Stories [Updated]

One way to determine value of a 'news provider' is to see how much attention it pays to non-issues. Early this afternoon, your lowly and nearly frozen Winter Patriot sampled five different news sites from five different countries. Here are the top stories from each of them:

Radio Netherlands: Darfur crisis under control says UN

CBC: House of Commons honours slain Mounties

BBC: US demands 'action' from Syrians

Aljazeera: Syria to move troops to east Lebanon

CNN: Martha Stewart returns

Need I say more?


Let it never be said that CNN ignores its critics.
