On Offense. As democrats learn art of skewering foe, Dan Carol is there. He digs up facts to wield when race gets rough, as this one just might. A list of 'generic attacks'
According to the article, "Mr. Carol isn't appearing in prime time at the Democratic convention. He isn't an employee of the Gore campaign or the Democratic National Committee. But as a consultant to the DNC, Democratic congressional campaigns and allied groups, he is part of a cadre of political warriors whose mastery of Information Age weapons is vital to Democrats' push to elect Al Gore and win control of Congress. Using television attack ads, internet sites, satellite interviews to targeted broadcast markets and blast fax and e-mail messages, they will seek to shred Mr. Bush's gauzy slogans by providing documentation that his Texas record and campaign proposals aren't 'compassionate' at all."
A collection of articles by The Village Voice examining if there is a new activist movement and if so, who are the activists and what do they hope to accomplish. The three-month project was done in the wake of mass demonstrations against the World Trade Organization in Seattle, against the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund in Washington, D.C., and against police brutality in New York City. "The staff found that the movement is composed of large numbers of citizens, with different agendas, but united in their rage over economic injustice."

Congressional Quarterly investigates where campaign contributions came from and where they went during the 1996 elections. The series found freshmen Republicans raising large numbers of political action committee contributions from the industries affected by the committees they sat on. For national conventions the series discovered how the big givers were the same corporations that regularly gave to political campaigns and organizations, and how they benefited from the federal subsidy programs that lawmakers refused to cut even as they slashed aid to the poor in order to balance the budget.
