Stories to Watch: 1/19/11

Using Chrome more now, but I've got to say that my opinion of scribefire for the browser has changed. I started out thinking it was just OK, now I've concluded it's worthless. Right now, I'm blogging directly to blogger's editor, which I haven't done for a long time. This time, I've suped it up with Zemanta, so expect a lot more tags at the bottom of the post (as if you care). Now here's the news...

Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennesee says that GOP lies about healthcare reform resemble the work of Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. True enough, but maybe this isn't the best time to bring that up. Conservatives -- who have no problem comparing a certain Democratic president to Hitler -- were, as always, quick to play the victim card. It's possible to point out that Republicans are shameless liars without tempting Godwin. Just sayin'.

Hillary won't commit to a second term as Secretary of State. Expect the baseless CLINTON WILL RUN AGAINST OBAMA! speculation to start any second now.

In what may be a sign of progress, Gabrielle Giffords will be moved from "University Medical Center to Houston’s TIRR Memorial Hermann Rehabilitation hospital, which specializes in helping people recover from brain injuries."

Seriously, can John Boehner be bothered to show up for anything?

Finally, the most trusted name in news? PBS. Fox News is in fourth place, but that's down 16 points from last year's PPP TV news poll.
