Congressional Hearing

Benghazi Inquiry: Defiance as a tactic
Sheila Liaugminas | Feb 1 2013 | comment  

Congressional investigators finally got Secretary of State Hillary Clinton before their panel to ask for answers they long wanted to hear. What did you know? When did you know it? Who did what and when? She turned the tables on them.

Politics & comedy
Sheila Liaugminas | Sep 27 2010 | comment  
The lines are always blurred between the two. In the last presidential election, Saturday Night Live became a keener player on the political commentary front when the show’s comedians took on Sarah Palin in regular skits. Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have made their fame on delivering real news as fake newsmen in a usually funny way. But when Stewart was voted most trusted newsman last year in a Time news poll, with real journalists trailing, it was clear a lot of people either didn’t know or didn’t care that he’s a fake newsman. Now, both comedians are turning up in more real news coverage.
