Hit Parade: Iraq, Franken, Clinton Edition

The Hit Parade ranks stories other people tuned into. Chart placement is determined by mentions on "The Daily Show," references by Washington Journal callers, and our whim. Arrows indicate movement since last week.


1. Iraq dominates: Bush apologizes; nation breathes collective sigh of relief. Photos of U.S. troops mistreating Iraqi detainees result in calls for Rumsfeld's resignation; he does not do quagmires.

2. Pat Tillman dies in Afghanistan; media pauses to reflect, war supporters claim mascot, Ted Rall fucks things up for the anti-war movement.

3. Escape of hostage Thomas Hamill overshadowed by mistreatment of Iraqi detainees.

4. Disney blocks distribution of Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11." Controversy generates interest in a story that is actually over a year old.

5. Amazon.com takes pre-orders for Clinton's memoir. Already a top seller.

6. Justice Souter attacked while jogging. Where was Scalia?

7. Teresa makes news on 20/20 tonight. What Newsweek cover?

8. Franken looks to the Senate as Air America falters. Attention-seeking behavior saves otherwise sinking pundit.

9. Joe Wilson's new book is this week's over-hyped non-event. And, by the way, it wasn't Rove.

10. Koppel's memorial Nightline registers ratings jump. "The Fallen" since forgotten for Friends.
