Color it: Yahoogate Sarah Palin's E-Mail Hacked

Color this one: Yahoogate.

For all of you on the left, you can appreciate this one.

'Anonymous,' best known for its jousts with Scientology, has apparently hacked Sarah Palin's private Yahoo email account. Contents, including sample emails, an index, and family photos, have been posted by Wikileaks, which calls them evidence that the GOP vice presidential candidate has improperly used private email to shield government business from public scrutiny."Note that there is no easy way to tell if the material on Wikileaks is genuine or a

"...The "Message to Scientology" video was highlighted as the "YouTube Video of the Week" by The Michigan Daily. Commenting on the video, the piece states "if this video is any indication, it seems like the assailants mean business".

"...The Michigan Daily is published in broadsheet form five days a week, Monday through Friday, during the Fall and Winter semesters. It is published weekly in tabloid form from May to August. Mondays contain a lengthy SportsMonday Sports section (reminiscent of, and probably derived from, The New York Times). On Thursdays, the paper publishes an arts section called The B-side. Wednesdays include a magazine, originally titled Weekend Magazine. In the fall of 2005, the magazine was renamed The Statement, a reference to former Daily Editor in Chief Tom Hayden's Port Huron Statement. Daily print circulation is currently over 18,000 copies, with over 230,000 unique visitors per month to its website.

In 1952, the Soviet delegate to the United Nations, F.A. Novikov, singled out the newspaper as emblematic of American warmongering. On April 12, 1955, when the success of Jonas Salk's polio vaccine was announced at the University of Michigan the Daily was the first newspaper to report it. In 1957, the Daily sent a staff member to Little Rock, Arkansas who, pretending to be a student, attended classes on the first day of integration.

Activist and politician Tom Hayden, a former Daily editor in chief who helped found Students for a Democratic Society while editing the Daily, came to personify the publication's editorial philosophy during the 1960s. The paper was the subject of national press coverage when, in 1967, it urged the legalization of marijuana."

Decades later, SDS returns

Where it began, students restart chapter of left-wing group

The group's manifesto, the Port Huron Statement, was written by University alum and former Michigan Daily Editor Thomas Hayden.

Fittingly, Haber was there to lend his encouragement. About 20 students attended the meeting in the Michigan Union in hopes of reviving the University's SDS chapter, enough for the group to be recognized by the University as an official student group.

The University chapter joins the more than 250 SDS chapters across the nation that have been re-established since January 2006.
