Each week, FishbowlNY offers up their picks for the cream of the underreported news cycle. Are you a blogger? Journalist? Then these are the stories to keep an eye on:
Subtext: Why did news of Watson’s DNA test make it into the Times of London? We’d say that Watson is making a last-minute PR bid to salvage his legacy from being tainted by the whole racism/brain power fiasco. It probably won’t work.
Subtext: The Kremlin refuses to deny reports that a union treaty will be signed between Russia and Belarus this week in Minsk. According to the Christian Science Monitor, Kremlin sources report that Putin will be the new provisional leader of the new union and Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko will be speaker of parliament. This will also give Putin the chance to create a new Constitution. Two dictators in one country? Awesome.
Subtext: If Mitt Romney plays this one right, it might be smooth sailing for the trouble-plagued Mormon presidential candidate. Scandals surrounding his evangelical rival will only benefit him.
