Stories to Watch: 12/7/11

I had a way more productive day than I'd expected. Now here's the news...

RIP Harry Morgan.

Is Fox News blowing the GOP's 2012 White House chances? Maybe. According to NYT's Michael Shear, Mitt Romney is doing especially poorly with the networks' audience. About half would vote Gingrich -- a Fox News "analyst" -- but "just 12 percent of the regular Fox watchers said that Mr. Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, is their choice to be the Republican standard-bearer." Mitt stands a fair chance against Obama, while Newt is very nearly unelectable.

But don't tell that to Florida GOP voters; Gingrich leads there with 48% to Mittens' 25%.

The Washington Post's fact-checker needs a fact-checker.

Mumia Abu-Jamal will not suffer the death penalty.

Jon Huntsman's position on climate science is starting to look like a pendulum.

TIME's #1 story of the year: "Occupy Wall Street Protests Spread."

Oregon court rules that First Amendment protections only apply to "real" journalists -- bloggers can go suck it. You know, I liked it a lot better when this was a free country.

Republicans pretend to stand against Richard Cordray, President Obama's nominee to head the new financial consumer watchdog agency. What they really oppose is the existence of the agency itself. Keeping backs from screwing you royally is an assault on liberty, I guess.

Finally, Mitt Romney seems to have been listening to a different speech than the one the President gave yesterday.
