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.

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.

  The Virgin Mary was due to appear on the night of Sept. 20, 1953. Reappear, actually, as she had already appeared to a group of youngsters twice in two days at 52d Street and Parkside Avenue at the edge of Fairmount Park. More than 50,000 came to see the expected miracle. Among them was Henry R. Darling, a young reporter for the Evening Bulletin, who had been on the paper only a few years and had been assigned obituaries, 50th anniversaries, and innocuous features.

COMCAST CABLE service is more expensive in Philadelphia than in other cities and more than one-quarter of its customers here are not satisfied with the company, according to a hefty study commissioned by the city and released yesterday. Officials from the Philadelphia-based cable-and-entertainment giant wasted no time slapping back at the findings gathered by CBG Communications Inc., calling them "inaccurate," "overstated" and "misleading. " Flawed or not, Mayor Nutter said the 571-page "needs-assessment" report would be a key tool used by the city as it negotiates a new 15-year cable-TV franchise agreement with Comcast.

Years before he was one of Philadelphia's dirtiest cops, Jeffrey Walker was a hero. In fall 1998, Walker specialized in drug busts for West Philadelphia's 16th Police District. On the streets, his aggressive work as an undercover cop and his appearance - tall, fit, with dreadlocks - earned him a nickname from drug dealers: Batman. Like any Batman, Jeffrey Walker had a Robin: his partner, Officer Brian Reynolds. In the tough Mantua neighborhood Batman and Robin patrolled that fall, three dealers found an easy way to get rid of the duo. One of the three would get $4,000 to kill them.

A day after an internal presentation of a Philadelphia Fire Department critique detailing errors and delays in the December blaze that killed Firefighter Joyce Craig, the report's author wrote in an official department log that he was being pressured to redact portions of his work. Deputy Chief Rich Davison, the author of the report, wrote that Deputy Commissioner Jesse Wilson - the department's second-in-command - had asked for redactions and explained his request with the suggestion that "some statements in the critique could hurt the city," according to a copy of the entry obtained by The Inquirer.

YOUR KID plays hockey, so you shell out a little extra and buy a quality helmet to protect his or her noggin. Good idea, right? Yes and no. Any helmet is better than none at all. But, according to a report, over a quarter of the headgear worn by hockey players don't do a good job of protecting against the risk of concussions. ESPN's "Outside the Lines" reported yesterday that researchers at Virginia Polytechnic Institute will release their findings today after testing 32 helmets that received certification from the Hockey Equipment Certification Council (HECC)

A prosecutor's finding that Cooper University Health System CEO John P. Sheridan Jr. killed his wife, set their bedroom on fire, and took his own life added significant new details to the circumstances surrounding the couple's mysterious deaths. It won't be the final word. Instead, the detailed seven-page report by the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office and the scathing response from the couple's four sons - itself full of new information - set up what promises to be an emotionally charged fight over the handling of the case and authorities' conclusion in the deaths of two people long tied to New Jersey's elite political and civic circles.

Two days after Atlantic City's state-appointed emergency-management team released its first report, Moody's credit-rating agency gave the city another of its patented thumbs-downs, warning of a possible default. And Standard & Poor's said it was reviewing its rating on Atlantic City's bonds, based on the report's holding open the possibility of the city delaying debt service payments. Moody's pelted the city back in January with a six-step credit downgrade after Gov. Christie appointed Kevin Lavin, a corporate restructuring expert, and Kevyn Orr, the man who steered Detroit through its bankruptcy, to take on Atlantic City's enormous fiscal hole.

Area congressmen Wednesday urged the Department of Veterans Affairs to issue its long-awaited report on mismanagement and misconduct at the Philadelphia regional office, after results of the probe began to seep out and stir new questions and accusations. A top VA official visited the office Wednesday and said the agency had already implemented many of the recommendations expected within a week from the department's Office of Inspector General. But leaks this week of portions of its report, and of material gathered by a congressional committee, have rekindled the focus on the Germantown-based facility.
