Bill O'Reilly, artistic photos and the first lady handshake: Top news tweets from around the Web
It's Friday. All day. And it's 60 degrees in November.
Rejoice. And catch up on some of the news you missed while working for the weekend. But before you do that, a quick note:
We've been floating around a weekly feature called #wpweek; you might've seen it around. We ask you on Twitter to rehash the news from around the Web and plug it into a 140-character missive. The results are often hilarious, but it serves a bigger purpose -- we've got a lot of followers, and we want to figure out who among them is most likely to send in crazy, mixed-up, clever tweets. So hello, followers old and new. And keep your replies, friendly notes and funny little messages coming. We love them.
So let's get down to the news. Here's what a few of you had to say:
Obama's free trade train stopped by cows on the tracks & Debt Commission report makes less of a splash than a cat drinking water #wpweek
Here's some of the news that tweets built, your most-shared stories of the week:
- Dana Milbank wrote about Bill O'Reilly wanting his head. Literally. Not to be confused with this spanking-new piece from Ted Koppel on the death of news at the hands of MSNBC and Fox News.
- In honor of FotoWeek DC, we asked you to send in your favorite artistic photos. Hundreds of you sent in your favorites, and lots more of you shared the gallery on Facebook and Twitter.
- A conservative Muslim government minister admits he shook hands with first lady Michelle Obama in welcoming her to Indonesia but says it wasn't his choice.
- Sarah Palin apparently "favorited" a tweet that claimed Barack Obama was a Taliban Muslim. Today, Palin said parents should have final say over what their kids eat in school. We may not know much about Palin, but one thing is clear: If she utters it, we'll blog about it.
