Wondering about how Mitt Romney feels about FEMA and government assistance for natural disasters? Here’s Eugene Robinson‘s column on the governor’s viewpoint just last June.

This “State of the Industry” presentation was prepared for AEJMC by Dr. Jody Brannon, an Online News Association board member and treasurer.
Ever wonder how government leaks work? Remember Judith Miller, the former New York Times reporter who broke the story about Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction? Now she is an expert on Fox New discussing — you guessed it! — the dangers of national security leaks.
