I am not a prude, Starr tells America

THE RE-INVENTION of Kenneth Starr as a doughty fighter for American justice and a modest lawyer just doing his job took a step forward on Wednesday night with an hour-long interview on ABC television in which he sought to banish his negative image. Deliberately low-key, the man castigated by President Bill Clinton as evil softened his voice, smiled and laughed at the awkward questions and offered to talk about his sex life, if that was what the interviewer, Diane Sawyer, wanted - she didn't.

Starr's words of praise for the President

PRESIDENT Bill Clinton will be the recipient of a surprise Thanksgiving gift this evening: an accolade from the man widely seen as his Enemy Number One, Kenneth Starr. In an interview to be broadcast on ABC television today, the eve of the holiday, Mr Starr is asked for his personal opinion of Mr Clinton as opposed to any legal view he might have, and his answer, as released in advance excerpts by ABC, reads as follows:

When Maureen and Castro are not who they seem

Viewers have the right to know whether what they see is fact or fiction, real or reconstructed

PRESIDENT CLINTON calls him "sludge" (according to Monica Lewinsky's evidence in the Starr Report). Penthouse calls him "the most dangerous man on the Internet", and US media journal Brill's Content cites him as a latter-day Tom Paine, a pioneer of the new journalism. Matt Drudge's website continues to upset the establishment, despite a pounds 30 million libel suit being brought against him by White House aide Sidney Blumenthal, accused, by the cybercolumnist, of serial wife-beating. Access the Drudge Report, and you will get the scandals other media are too lawyered-up to report.

ABC pulls plug on Oliver Stone

YOU CAN always count on Oliver Stone for a good conspiracy theory. That is what the executives at ABC television thought, anyway, when they commissioned him to make a documentary special about the downing of TWA Flight 800 - the jet that exploded over Long Island in the middle of the 1996 Olympic Games.

An abject lesson in dumbing-down

Britain is getting the American habit of blaming a little square box for all society's ills

IN THE NAME OF GOD

THE DAY has been hot, very hot, and the rubbish skip smells, to say the least, rank. But there is stuff inside it that we need to get. Not the shards of broken light-bulbs, and certainly not the swill of tea dregs and half-eaten takeaways. No, what we want are the neatly tied plastic dustbin-liners that are full, we hope, with paper: bills, letters, direct mailings. So in we get. It is called "dumpster diving".

In this photo illustration a school student eats a hamburger as part of his lunch which was brought from a fast food shop near his school, on October 5, 2005 in London, England. The British government has announced plans to remove junk food from school lunches. From September 2006, food that is high in fat, sugar or salt will be banned from meals and removed from vending machines in schools across England. The move comes in response to a campaign by celebrity TV chef Jamie Oliver to improve school meals.
