    This has to be the best thing I’ve seen since Newt Gingrich was calling out the liberal media in 2012. Republican Mark Callahan, who is running for US Senate in Oregon, was in a candidate review meeting with other colleagues in order for Willamette Week, a publication in Portland, to decide who they would endorse in the upcoming primary. An opponent of his, Republican Joe Rae Perkins, was on speaker phone. There were others in the room but I’m not sure who they were specifically. The clip starts with Perkins answering a question on speaker phone. While she was answering...

    Boston Globe (-Democrat) ^ | 8/16/07 | Susan Bicklehaupt
    (More below, too) Sources close to the negotiations say a possible new home for radio talkmasters John Dennis and Gerry Callahan is WCRB-FM (99.5), the classical music station that is considering a switch to an all-sports format. Dennis and Callahan, whose contracts expire next month, have had the 6-10 a.m. shift on WEEI-AM (850) until last week, when they were told not to return. Dennis was on vacation last week; Callahan has been out since May while recovering from throat surgery.

    Now don’t breathe a word of this. Because nobody’s supposed to know. But rumor in radioland is that struggling rock station WBCN may be trying to woo sports yakkers John Dennis and Gerry Callahan away from WEEI. The broadcast blather has it that parent company CBS may be looking at changing the legendary Boston music station to a sports-talk or the so-called male-talk format. “In Pittsburgh, CBS just switched WRKZ, a rock station, to a male-talk station,” said one industry insider. “So it’s not unheard of.” But others in the know say the station could be pursuing WEEI’s top-rated morning...

    As President Bush weighs viable candidates for a second Supreme Court vacancy, Republican allies close to the process agree on one thing: Expect the unexpected selection. Top Republicans say liberals are playing politics by warning that a fierce Senate fight will erupt if the president nominates a conservative to replace the high court's moderate female, and that Mr. Bush won't be pigeonholed by Washington pundits' calls for a woman or a Hispanic. "The idea that he has to move left is a ludicrous, inside-the-Beltway type of thinking, coming from people who want to do him harm," said Gary Bauer, chairman...

    Why Hasn't This Received More Attention?A top official at the Department of Homeland Security is investigated and now placed on leave after questions arise regarding her PhD, which appears to have come from a "diploma mill" rather than a legitimate university. Yet, outside of a few niche publications, Washington Technology, Government Computer News, and Federal Computer Week, that cover the business of selling technology products and services to the government, the story has received scant attention. UPDATE: The Washington Post's Al Kamen did cover the story on June 4, with an item in a round-up of news. Interesting tidbits: Laura...

    A senate committee chairwoman today turned up the heat on the Homeland Security Department’s investigation of a senior government career official’s claim of a Ph.D. from a Wyoming university that, according to its literature, requires no attendance and scant course work. Hamilton University, the source of the official’s doctorate, grants bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees based on life and work experience. "I am very concerned by allegations that a senior Department of Homeland Security official may have misrepresented her academic credentials," said Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, chairman of the Governmental Affairs Committee, which oversees Homeland Security. “I have written today...

Since then, Mrs. Callahan has provided Diaz with DNA evidence taken from her children that could help Diaz prove that the Port Authority officer also fathered her two sons. The DNA will be compared to DNA samples taken from Diaz's children. "My boys are finally going to...
