    On Thursday, Chuck Todd, NBC News’ White House Correspondent and Political Director, called a Politico report which revealed that Vice President Joe Biden’s staff actively attempted to edit pool reports, which are used to inform reporters about events on the campaign trail, an “outrage.” He said that the system of distributing pool reports through political staffers may have to change as a result of Biden’s staffer’s behavior. RELATED: Biden’s Staff Tried To Influence Reporting On His Virginia Trip, According To Report Politico reporter Jonathan Martin, who originally reported the infraction by Biden’s staffers, said the attempted influencing of pool reports...

He said Bush "fraudulently" justified the war on Iraq and misled "the American people and members of Congress...

    Heart of Dixie EW's Chris Willman got a sneak peek at the Dixie Chicks' sure-to-be-controversial documentary ''Shut Up and Sing,'' in which Natalie Maines calls the president a ''dumb f---'' The international press won't get their first look at the documentary Dixie Chicks: Shut Up and Sing until its gala premiere at the Toronto Film Festival tonight. But EW.com got an early look at the sure-to-be-controversial doc in Los Angeles and can attest that the film will continue to bring the (ex?) country trio more plaudits from progressives and further condemnation from conservatives. And if you think singer Natalie Maines...

    WASHINGTON -- President Bush has long cultivated the image of a macho rancher, frequently donning his boots and Wrangler jeans to clear brush on his sprawling Texas property. But he was decidedly noncommittal today — and even a bit nonplused — when asked for his reaction to the most talked-about ranching film in years: "Brokeback Mountain." "I hadn't seen it," Bush told thousands of students and professors at Kansas State University, responding to a query from an audience member. "I'd be glad to talk about ranching, but I haven't seen the movie." The movie, featuring the love story of two...

    It's a brilliant strategy. When the Bush Adminsitration isn't using taxpayers money to buy its own news, it does evertything in can to shut out and pillory reporters who might tell Americans 'what is really happening' in their own government.Paul Darhi of the Washington Post discovered this even at an inaugural ball when he was assigned 'minders'--attractive women who wouldn't give him their full names---to let revelers know that Big Brother was watching should they be tempted to say something remotely off message.The inability of 'real journalists' to penetrate this White House is not all the White Houses fault.

    Washington DC, August 12, 1945 (Routers) President Truman is coming under increasing fire from some Congressional Republicans for what appears to be a deteriorating security situation in occupied Germany, with some calling for his removal from office. Over three months after a formal declaration of an end to hostilities, the occupation is bogged down. Fanatical elements of the former Nazi regime who, in their zeal to liberate their nation from the foreign occupiers, call themselves members of the Werwolf (werewolves) continue to commit almost-daily acts of sabotage against Germany's already-ravaged infrastructure, and attack American troops. They have been laying road...

    One Faction Hopes Roosevelt Notes "Bum Advice" Saturday June 17, 1944 WASHINGTON (Routers) The first ten days of the invasion of the European mainland have brought back with a vengeance the deep splits that have long existed within the Roosevelt administration and the Democratic Party over policy toward Vichy France. Already there is a behind-the-scenes effort by former senior Democratic government officials and party leaders to convince President Roosevelt that the advice he has received from Secretary of War Stimson and Secretary of State Hull has been wrong and even dangerous to long-term U.S. national interests. Citing past public statements...
