Shame on 'Washington Post' for a Coverup

Sandy Goodman | Posted 04.05.2016 | Home
Sandy Goodman

The Post certainly didn't lie; it simply made a big mistake. But corrections never do catch up with mistakes. And combined with a widespread and generally unwarranted mistrust of Clinton by the American people, those mistakes will certainly make her life and candidacy even more difficult.

Hillary Clinton v. the Right-Wing

Peter D. Rosenstein

Attacks must hurt Hillary personally when her record in public life has never been shown to be anything but honest. She has made a career of speaking out for those who can't speak out for themselves and fighting for equality and the civil and human rights of those who have been oppressed.

A Shutdown to Shutdowns

David J. Brunell

Here's the proposal: amend the Constitution to have a continuing resolution be the default. Rather than have the government shut down when Congress can't agree (on how) to fund the government, have the government automatically funded at current levels unless and until a new budget is passed.
