Newsreader will feature Michelle Obama on Palin, details on the alleged Yahoo hacker who pleaded not guilty yesterday and got his trial date as well as the growing hubbub over the A-bomb (meaning McCain/Palin associating Barack Obama with Bill Ayers), including an amateur video of a post-McCain/Palin rally crowd where some in attendance say they are persuaded by the link to terrorism. Find an update on the Tina Fey-SNL prospects tonight, and visit Barrow where the fall whale hunt is on.
