I GUESS THE LIBERAL press will be building it own "wailing wall" because of one reporter asking President Obama a question. All the reporters there chased him down to the Washington Monument, like the villagers going after Frankenstein's monster. I suppose they forgot how they hounded Richard Nixon, or Sam Donaldson yelling questions at Ronald Reagan, probably even as he was trying to go to the bathroom. They say Richard Nixon broke the law, but not as much as Obama has tried to destroy our Constitution.

A reporter for the liberal online news service OpEdNews filed suit Thursday in U.S. District Court alleging that Philadelphia police improperly targeted her for arrest during a demonstration against military recruiting at Franklin Mills Mall in 2009. The demonstration attracted counter-demonstrators, and the two groups were monitored by the Philadelphia Police Department's Civil Affairs Unit. Photographer and writer Cheryl Biren-Wright said she was taking photographs for the news service when police singled her out from among other media representatives, seized her camera, and placed her under arrest.

Murrey Marder, 93, a Washington Post reporter whose tenacious coverage of Joseph McCarthy's anti-communist crusade foreshadowed the senator's downfall and disgrace, died March 11 at the Washington Home hospice. The cause was complications from a stroke last month, said his nephew Steve Marder. Mr. Marder's career spanned nearly eight decades, including World War II service in the South Pacific as a Marine Corps combat correspondent. He joined the Washington Post in 1946 and distinguished himself on the so-called Red Beat, the sensational trials and hearings about the alleged communist infiltration of government, Hollywood, and other industries.

William J. "Bill" Storm, perhaps the greatest "house-end" reporter who ever worked in Philadelphia, died Saturday of a stroke. He was 76 and lived in Roxborough and in Daytona, Fla. Bill Storm, a police reporter for 36 years for the old Philadelphia Evening Bulletin, was a maestro of the "house-ender. " That is a reporter knocking on the door of a grief-stricken family to get facts that puts faces and feelings into a story about tragedy. He was aggressive, smart and fast, but didn't fit the public's stereotype of the probing reporter - he was a gentleman.

Police were seeking the public's help in getting information about a young couple who might have dropped a baby off a railway bridge Friday morning in Southwest Philadelphia. After an exhaustive search, no baby had been found as of late Friday, but police were still investigating. "We're hopeful it didn't happen," said Lt. John Walker of Southwest Detectives, though he added that enough people had reported sightings that "it's possible it did happen. " The first report came from a 24-year-old woman from the neighborhood, who was driving north on the 68th Street bridge over freight-train tracks near Kingsessing Avenue about 11 a.m. Friday.

Investigators of Tuesday's deadly Amtrak derailment say they are focusing on reports that the train was traveling more than twice the 50-mile-an-hour speed limit when it entered a sharp curve in Frankford.

The train's engineer, who has not been identified, declined to give a statement to police investigators and left the East Detectives Division with an attorney, police commissioner Charles H.

The U.S. Postal Service 's inspector general recommends that the agency fire CBRE Inc. , the largest U.S. commercial real estate broker, and rebid the company's four-year-old contract for renting new post offices and selling old ones. Inspectors, writing last month, wrote that CBRE's practice of representing private-sector landlords and buyers, while also representing the Postal Service on the other side of the same deals, is "inherently risky" and creates "conflicts of interest.

AS WE NEAR the end of the Marcus Mariota watch, with the first round of the NFL draft set for tomorrow evening, a couple of interesting reports about the Eagles have surfaced. The first, from ESPN's Chris Mortensen, alleges that the Eagles and quarterback Sam Bradford are discussing a contract extension, but that Bradford wants a no-trade clause for this season and will not sign an extension with any other team. You have to wonder if that will still be a consideration after tomorrow, since the Eagles are hardly going to look to trade their presumptive starting quarterback during training camp, or after the season starts.

American Airlines, Philadelphia's dominant air carrier, reported Friday a record $1.2 billion profit in the first three months of this year, mainly because of lower fuel prices.

Comcast Corp.'s giant deal for Time Warner Cable Inc. seemed dead Thursday after the staff of the Federal Communications Commission reportedly favored sending the $45 billion transaction to an administrative law judge for a decision. Such a move indicates that the FCC does not believe the deal would benefit consumers. A hearing before an administrative law judge - unlike private negotiations between high-level FCC officials and Comcast executives over conditions of the merger - would offer Comcast opponents another public forum in which to blast the transaction.
