MEP is a newly formed group seeking to focus on the public interest responsibilities of mass media organizations. A key focus of today’s MEP filing is to seek an expansion...

    "Kerry Names 1969 Version of Himself as Running Mate," reads a headline in the Onion: Kerry said his newly chosen running mate graduated from Yale University in 1966, after which he volunteered for the Navy, serving as a swift-boat officer on a gunboat in the Mekong Delta in Vietnam. For his exemplary service, the young soldier was awarded a Silver Star, a Bronze Star, and three Purple Hearts. "My running mate is a natural-born leader," Kerry said. "He was born at Fitzsimons Military Hospital in Denver, where his father was recovering from tuberculosis after volunteering for the Army Air Corps...

    SAVANNAH, Georgia During the Cuban missile crisis, a European diplomat at the Group of 8 summit meeting here recalled, an emissary of John F. Kennedy paid an urgent visit to Charles de Gaulle in Paris. He came planning an elaborate presentation of photos of Soviet missile emplacements aimed at the United States. The general, the diplomat said, told Kennedy's man to forget the slide show. He said it was unnecessary because France trusted America. Characterizing the summit meeting on Sea Island, which ended on Thursday, the diplomat said international trust in 2004 had different, less grand, less elegant parameters. But...

    On a fairly regular basis, newspapers are accused of acting in concert to slant their coverage of President Bush. This is, of course, true. Although newspapers generally act independently, when it comes to President Bush they take great pains to always be on the same page. Here is an inside look at how the process works at a typical newspaper: First thing every morning, the top editors meet to discuss how the paper will be unfair and negative toward the president in the next day's paper. This anti-Bush meeting is nicknamed "Get Shorty," and is presided over by the Skew...

    The name "Republican" was chosen because it alluded to equality and reminded individuals of Thomas Jefferson's Democratic-Republican Party. In 1856, the Republicans became a national party when John C. Fremont was nominated for President under the slogan: "Free soil, free labor, free speech, free men, Fremont." Even though they were considered a "third party" because the Democrats and Whigs represented the two-party system at the time, Fremont received 33% of the vote. Four years later, Abraham Lincoln became the first Republican to win the White House. The Civil War erupted in 1861 and lasted four grueling years. During the war,...
  • Kerry and Democrats Attack Budget

    Kerry's campaign accused Bush of planning budget cuts that would devastate programs for veterans, women, children and homeland security – and yet do little to reduce the nation's deficit. The White House Office of Management and Budget said the documents were routine procedural guidelines so officials could start gathering data about their needs for 2006 spending and do not necessarily reflect the final budget blueprint. The Kerry campaign and the Democratic National Committee planned events in more than 30 states this week to highlight the Bush budget documents. The campaign also planned veterans' events in all 50 states to draw...

    WHO IS JOHN KERRY, WAR HERO? Everyday the media tiptoes around John Kerry as if he is an icon of service to the Nation. But why is his service to the nation in war not balanced against his return to longhaired freakdom to march against his fellow veterans still in the war, including myself? I was especially incensed when my communist captors quoted him in propaganda. I had a discussion with Senator Kerry in Bangkok, Thailand. He made some surprising statements during that exchange. He stated emphatically that I should provide him with any information I had on missing Americans....

    ABC 2004: Bush-Cheney re-elect:Nicolle Devenish, the spokesperson of the Bush-Cheney campaign, tells The Note that on Tuesday the 15th, Bush-Cheney will put up two categories of data on its web site: all the FEC-required stuff, plus more more more. The campaign plans to post just under 20,000 donors who gave $200 or more, with close to 80% of those donors having complete information (occupation/address/etc.) listed, and the campaign is working all weekend trying to get higher compliance, which is admirable on at least two levels. In addition, the campaign will put up all the donors who gave less than $200,...
