 Battle Lines: The American Media and hte Intifada, by Jim Lederman - CJR, March/April 92
Battle Lines is particularly critical of the "parachutists" flown in to cover the intifada.
Battle Lines discusses the importance of, among other things, direct international dialing, generous rent-a-car budgets, and working the restaurant at the government press office.
As is, Battle Lines is itself a product of the new information age, one in which journalists feel compelled to puff up workaday observations into self-important pronouncements about What It All Means.

 Autistic Society >> Brian Henson >> The Battle Lines
The view on this side of the battle line is that this "disease" does, indeed, cause uncalculable hardship and suffering to those afflicted with it, and to their families and the few friends that they do have.
On the other side of the battle line is the affidavit that autism, per se, is not a "disease" of any sort, but a way of describing how persons who have a "different" genetic predisposition towards certain types of behaviour are treated by a society.
As Kanner's writings were revealed to the public back in the late forties, the medical community adopted his line of diagnosis as a person not only with social problems in being able to relate to others, but also with language and cognitive problems from early years (around age two or younger).

 New York Daily News - Ideas & Opinions - Errol Louis: Battle lines are redrawn   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Although the post-census lines had already been fixed in Texas, DeLay's allies in the state legislature announced an unprecedented mid-decade redistricting that split Democratic districts apart and threw hundreds of thousands of Democratic-leaning fl and Latino voters into heavily Republican districts, in possible violation of the Voting Rights Act.
But allowing DeLay's cynical power grab would invite retaliation by legislatures in other states, causing congressional lines all over America to be redrawn whenever party bosses feel like enhancing their power.
The specter of such scenes being repeated around the country should be reason enough for the high court to step in and prevent small-minded party hacks from causing irreparable harm to the American political system.
