Voting Off The Island


The New York Stock Exchange has yanked the credentials of Al Jazeera's two stock exchange reporters. Jazeera claims it's being punished for its war coverage. NYSE spokesman Ray Pellechia claims the move was made for security reasons and says other networks (unnamed, natch) have been refused accreditation. Since the simplest explanation is the most likely one, I think the Exchange just didn't want Arabs to learn about yesterday's embarrassing Chicken Little selloff.
