George Clooney and Elie Wiesel: Together Again For The First Time
Where to begin? The teaser on CNN's main page read "Clooney, Wiesel Call For UN Troops In Darfur." (It's gone now.) After years of everyone swearing they would never let something like Rwanda happen again, they are letting it happen again in Darfur. And how do you get media attention to a horror like genocide? By bringing in George Clooney. Good for him, but what a bizarre headline. And I bet you won't hear the far right mock Clooney for this bit of activism because they don't want to highlight the fact of Bush's moral failure to act.
