Tomorrow's front page
Two stories, in particular, grab our interest and will be played on our front page for Friday. One, reported by Kate Folmar, looks at the the Schwarzenegger administration and the governor accepting millions from two muscle and fitness magazines to serve as executive editor. The magazines are funded heavily by advertising from the dietary supplement industry. Schwarzenegger previously vetoed a bill by Jackie Speier that would have regulated supplement use among high schoolers. The other story comes out of Iraq and Knight Ridder reporter Hannah Allam. She reports on how the Iraqi Defense Ministry has lost more than $300 million in what appears to be a massive web of corruption that flourished under American-appointed supervisors for a year or longer, according to U.S. and Iraqi military officials. These are two of five stories we're looking at for now. That could change as the afternoon and evening progress.
